A. J. Reb Materi once said that “So many people spend their health in gaining wealth, & then have to spend their wealth to regain their health”. Don’t you think we all do this in one or other way? That’s why I thought that we must go for some herbs or plant therapy to gain my health without spending lots of money. So when I tried to search for some plant which can help me I came across with CELERY.
CELERY is one of the very common & effective plant which helps in curing various health disorders which are not easily curable. The green leaves, stem and the bulbous root of celery are all extremely rich & makes celery a very important medicinal plant. There are various health benefits derived from celery and its juice. The medical quality of celery was first described by the Greeks Discorides and Pliny.
It contains balanced minerals, vitamins & nutrients & its oil has strong smell due to concentrations of plant hormones. The presence of the essential oils makes celery special. They are also found in the seeds & can be added to the juice also. These oils have a specific effect on the regulation of the nervous system, and have a great calming influence. Celery is used for its strong stimulating and beneficial effect on a weak sexual system, but as is usual with plant therapies the normally active person does not have to fear an uncontrollable upsurge.
Calories In Celery: 1 cup or 100 gms of celery has only 14 calories. Plant therapy tends to make the system normal. That’s why we should prefer the plant therapy to cure ourselves. Moreover these plants don’t have side-effects like other therapies. They affect the immune system of body naturally.
