Celery does carry powerful health-enhancing properties. A Molecular Nutrition & Food Research study found celery contains several compounds with remarkable antioxidant attributes that help restrain free radical activity. One particular flavonoid, apigenin, shows anti-inflammatory potential. The Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine reports celery might help prevent cardiovascular and liver diseases, rheumatic disorders, and urinary tract obstruction. The vegetable also helps lower blood glucose, lipids, and pressure. Experimental research suggests it has antifungal characteristics, as well.
