Celery Seed

Celery seed isn't well-known in Western herbal medicine, although it's been used for thousands of years in other areas of the world. Celery seed has been used to treat colds, flu, water retention, poor digestion, various types of arthritis, and some diseases of the liver and spleen.

In modern times, celery seed is used primarily as a diuretic to increase urine output to help the body get rid of excess water. Celery seed has also been used for treating arthritis and gout, to help reduce muscle spasms, calm the nerves, and reduce inflammation.

It should be noted, however, that there aren't any scientific studies in humans that show whether celery seed is effective for these conditions or any others. Studies have confirmed that celery seeds act as a mosquito repellent.

A few animal studies suggest that celery seed extracts may help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, as well as protect the liver from damaging substances such as the pain reliever acetaminophen. Animal studies also show celery seed may help prevent the formation of cancerous tumors in mice.

In humans, researchers have found that people who eat a diet rich in lutein (found in celery, spinach, broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes, oranges, carrots, and greens) were significantly less likely to develop colorectal cancer. However, celery was just one part of their diet, and no one knows whether the effect is due to celery, another food, or some combination of foods.

Celery seeds contain volatile oils, flavonoids (plant pigments with antioxidant effects that may protect cells from damage), coumarins (chemical compounds that help thin the blood), and linoleic acid (an omega-6 fatty acid).
