High blood pressure or arterial hypertension is one of the most commonly diagnosed diagnoses. If the systolic pressure is 140 mm Hg or higher and the diastolic pressure is 90 mm Hg or higher for two consecutive measurements at rest, the diagnosis of arterial hypertension is considered confirmed.
According to the World Health Organization, 44.2 percent of adults in Europe have arterial hypertension.
Luckily for us, Mother Nature offers her help in this case as well. For high-pressure lowering, try celery! Due to its fibrous and crunchy texture, it is a true fighter against arterial hypertension. The good news is that celery works without any possible side effects, even if you use medicines.
This versatile vegetable contains active substances that naturally relax the muscles in and around the walls of the arteries. In addition, these beneficial substances lower blood pressure and promote the health of the circulatory system by reducing stress hormones. Celery also contains considerable amounts of magnesium, potassium, and calcium. The beneficial effect of these minerals is to calm the nervous system.

Although Hippocrates prescribed celery juice to patients with nervous tension, and although Chinese medicine has long recognized the celery juice for reducing high blood pressure, the Western world has only recently begun to understand its healing potential.
This is supported by the results of an American study during which, thanks to celery juice, participants’ blood pressure dropped from 158/96 to 118/82. All this after only one week of eating four stems a day.
