Celery is called the “couple vegetable” by doctors of traditional Chinese medicine because it is good for both men and women. It is beneficial for the stomach, and can also relieve edema and hypertension. In addition, it also has the following benefits:

1. Preventing hair loss caused by too much androgen

Loss of hair due to excessive androgen levels is frequently seen in adult males. Celery has been proven to be able to help inhibit the secretion of androgen and prevent hair loss.

2. Preventing cancer

Celery is rich in fiber and may inhibit cancer-causing agents produced by bacteria in the intestinal tract.

3. Inducing saliva

Celery is in the category of “coolness” in Chinese medicine, so it can decrease heat in the body and induce saliva to relieve dryness in the mouth due to dry weather.

4. Reducing hypertension

It has been proven by experiments that celery extract can inhibit hypertension.

5. Helping lose weight

Celery is rich in a substance that accelerates the breakdown of fat, so it can help you lose weight. In addition, celery is rich in fiber and can relieve constipation.

6. Helping sleep

An alkaloid extracted from celery seeds has been proven to be effective in calming down animals. The Apigenin contained in them can help those suffering from insomnia to fall asleep more easily.

7. Improving one’s looks

Celery is rich in iron and can supplement iron in those suffering from anemia. It also contains ascorbic acid, which can slow down the process of aging, thereby improving one’s looks.
