Herbal Wisdom: Celery

  1. Celery is actually both an herb and a vegetable. This is because celery can be divided into three different types, namely: celery leaf, celery and celeriac. The first variety, the celery leaves, is the kind that can be used as a spice in and on dishes and the other two, the bleach and celeriac, are the types that are seen and used as vegetables. What they all have in common is that they are very healthy and were known for their medicinal properties a long time ago.

The healthy benefits of the celery varieties

  1. So three different types, but all three super healthy. In very early times celery was not used as a vegetable at all, but as a medicine. Then, not yet with us in the Netherlands, because here people did not know it yet, but in China, Egypt, with the ancient Greeks and Romans. As mentioned, that was longer than 2000 years ago. When it came to diseases of the cardiovascular system, high blood pressure, but also infections of the mouth, throat and stomach, celery was one of the means that was used. This is because it contains a substance that has an antibacterial and disinfecting effect, such as Limonum. Celery also has a diuretic and blood-thinning effect, which makes it good for the heart, vessels and high blood pressure. The substance that is responsible for this is called buthylphtalide and it relaxes the blood vessels so that the blood can flow more smoothly through the vessels. Celery also contains antioxidants. The so-called coumarins and acetylenicides that can neutralize free radicals and thus indirectly prevent the development of cancer. These are all reasons to enjoy celery with peace of mind, whatever kind it is that you prefer. Of course we also find vitamins such as vitamins B and C, the minerals potassium, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and iron
