Eating Celery to lower blood pressure

(by Frank) — I have been living with high blood pressure for a number of years. I am 78 years old. I ran into Dr. Julian Whitaker through a flyer that I received in the mail. In that flyer, I found out that celery(3-n butyl pathelide)would help lower your blood pressure.

Dr. Whitaker is a graduate of Emory Medical school. Also, my cardiologist is a graduate of Emory Medical School. From time to time, I would talk to my cardiologist about taking natural things for my blood pressure. The only thing he recommended was garlic I would mention to him about celery, but he never said a thing about it yet both Doctors were graduates of Emory Medical School.

I got the feeling that he wanted me to take medication that had side effects. One day, I had a quite high blood pressure problem (178/98) and decided to go buy some celery at the farmer’s market and try it. I bought a couple of bunches and ate one whole bunch of celery. After eating one whole bunch of celery, I took my blood pressure, and it was 112/60. I was telling a CVS pharmacy technician about it, and she told me that her grandmother whom she lived with knew about celery and blood pressure along time ago.

Celery is a natural diuretic. Celery is among the many natural diuretics that we have discussed on the natural alteratives blog.

Good on ya for stearing away from the toxic drugs, and finding a natural therapy that worked for you!

Thank you for your suggestion. I agree with you. Eating celery is good to lower the pressure. In addtion of the celery, the watermelon is another good dieuretic that helps to lower the pressure.

The correct spelling is phthalide, not pathelide. Otherwise you’re on the right track. But, you don’t have to eat all that celery. Just buy celery seed extract in capsules or tablets, standardized to 85% 3-n-B. One of its actions in lowering blood pressure is to relax blood vessels. It also appears to have positive effects on joint pain and cholesterol levels.

“3nB is a compound that is unique to celery and is responsible for the characteristic flavor and odor of celery. 3nb was discovered as the active component of celery in response to investigations by researchers seeking to explain some of the medicinal effects of celery including the lowering of blood pressure and the relief of arthritis. 3nB first drew significant scientific attention when researchers at the University of Chicago Medical Center identified it as the factor in celery responsible for the blood pressure lowering effect of celery.1 The research was prompted by one of the researcher’s father, who after eating a quarter-pound of celery every day for one week observed his blood pressure dropped from 158 over 96 to a normal reading of 118 over 82. Subsequent animal studies found that a very small amount of 3nB lowered blood pressure by 12 to 14% and also lowered cholesterol by about 7%.”
