Celery (Apium graveolens) is a plant species in the family Umbelliferae, and yields two important vegetables known as celery and celeriac.
Cultivars of the species have been used for centuries, whilst others have been domesticated only in the last 200-300 years.
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.
