What is Celery Seed?
Celery is a widely used vegetable in modern cooking, flavoring, and even mixology. Healthy eaters praise the green stalk for its low caloric density and high fiber content. It is particularly valued by dieters as a “negative calorie” food, which means the act of consuming celery burns more calories than the vegetable itself contains. Celery seed, meanwhile, is used as a potent spice that adds warm flavor notes to foods and beverages, as well as appearing in the spice celery salt.**
Beyond its culinary applications, research suggests that the tiny seeds found in the flowers of the celery plant may hold multiple wellness benefits. Celery seeds were used in the folk health practices of ancient Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Egyptians, as well as in Ayurvedic wellness traditions. Intriguingly, some Ayurvedic uses for celery seed—such as helping with water retention and joint issues—have been supported by modern science.**
Celery seeds supply antioxidants, flavonoids and linoleic acid, which is an omega-6 fatty acid. In addition, the seed supplies a compound called 3-n-butylphthalide, which may promote cardiovascular health by supporting healthy circulation and helping to maintain blood pressure that is already within normal range. This compound is unique to celery and is included in nearly all commercially available celery supplements.**
Celery seed’s most common wellness use is as a diuretic, helping to flush the body of excess fluids while supporting urinary tract health and comfort. It is believed to modulate inflammation, thereby helping to promote joint comfort. Celery seed has also been included in herbal formulations that appear to promote menstrual comfort, although its efficacy as a standalone product for menstrual comfort is unknown.**
