In alternative medicine, celery is commonly used for cleansing the body (especially the blood), strengthening the nerves and as a cure for bladder disease because it stimulates the secretion of urine. Celery also refines the liver, lowers blood sugar levels and blood pressure. It contains very few calories, so it’s a useful food during weight loss. It is most useful if eaten raw and is not recommended for people with diseased kidneys and pregnant women.
