Celery Seed Materia Medica


Celery seed has been used medicinally for over 3000 years, and it is mentioned in Homer’s Odyssey (7th century B.C.E.) in this reference. Although it has been used medicinally for thousands of years in other parts of the world, it is not widely used in Western herbal medicine. In Ayurvedic medicine, celery seeds are used to treat arthritis, colds, flu, water retention, poor digestion, and certain diseases of the liver and spleen. Celery seed is mineral-rich, being a good source of calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium, phosphorus,
iron and zinc.
