Lower blood pressure with celery
There are a number of basic foods we can add to our diet that help reduce blood pressure. One of the best is celery. An unpretentious garden vegetable, celery has a number of great health benefits. And does it lower blood pressure? Yes, it does help.
Below is a video from a Californian lass who explains the benefits of celery and all the good things it can do for you – including helping lower blood pressure.
Benefits of celery include;
- high levels of potassium (helps lower blood pressure)
- natural diuretic (helps lower blood pressure)
- high in fiber (natural de-toxifier)
- low in calories (helper you to lose weight)
Celery is a good way to lose weight cause it fills you up yet has very few calories. It is claimed that you burn more calories chewing celery up and digesting it than it returns. Hence a steady diet of celery could help you keep your weight down, if that’s an issue.

Interesting ways to eat celery for lower blood pressure
But isn’t celery boring and tasteless? And only useful for eating with rich fatty dips? Well no. Although celery is good for dipping (try it with guacamole, one of the tastiest and also healthiest dips around), you can also use it in your cooking.
Add some chopped celery to a pot of chilli or stew, or gently fry with onions as a soup or sauce base – it’ll add its own subtle flavour and bring out the flavour of other ingredients too.
And don’t forget about the wee leaves at the end of celery stick. They’re usually cut off but they’re actually the tastiest bit so use these in salads or sandwiches. Or blend up some celery with other fruits and vegetables in a smoothie. (More recipe ideas are in our guide to lowering blood pressure described below.)
