Quick Tip: Celery Might Help Lower Your Blood Pressure
Many people with high blood pressure believe that they should avoid celery because it is said to be high in sodium. Celery does have more naturally-occurring sodium than most vegetables (about 30mg per stalk) but this is still a fairly small amount. Plus, there’s a compound in celery that actually seems to lower blood pressure—in mice, anyway. Researchers are still investigating but there is certainly no reason to avoid celery because of its sodium content.
