Celery has many health benefits. It is high in Vitamin C which is a natural immune booster and when celery juice is combined with a little lemon juice it can be used as a remedy for the common cold when fever is more prominent than chills.
Due to it's high content of silicon (which is important for bone healthy), celery benefits arteries and all connective tissues and helps to renew joints. Celery is also an important food source of conventional antioxidant nutrients, including vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese.
In traditional medicine, high potency celery seed is administered to help manage the symptoms of gout and rheumatism to minimise pain and inflammation. It is also used as a diuretic.
