Scientists recommend consuming celery for its high medicinal value

Washington, Sep 4 (Prensa Latina) Scientists and nutritionists strongly recommend consuming celery, for it is a blood lipids regulator and has neuroprotective and anticancer properties, a specialized source reported on Friday.

According to The Nature magazine, such benefits of celery are due to apigenin, a flavonoid that has a high medicinal value.

Celery – known for its property to increase diuresis – provides an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effect.

Classed as perfect to beat type 2 diabetes, Celery is low in calories but with high water content enriched with fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Scientists said celery can help you get enough folic acid, potassium, fiber, and molybdenum micronutrient.

Plus, celery contains small amounts of vitamin A, B, C, and K. It has an aromatic flavor, and is a vegetable of the Umbelliferae or apiaceae family, a group which parsley, fennel, cumin or carrot, among others, also belong to.

Celery provides sedative effects, being an excellent ally to tone nervous system and fall asleep. It is also a powerful ally to regulate period and to relieve menopause symptoms.
