  Latin Name Apium graveolans
English Name Celery
Hindi Name Ajamoda
Part Used Seed

Celery Seed is the dried fruit of Apium graveolens, a biennial in the parsley family. The apium graveolens is slender and stands about two to three feet tall. It has three to five segmented leaves, and flowers with small white petals. Celery seeds, which are found in the flowers, are very small, tan to dark brown, and have a strong, pleasant smell. Celery has been used since earliest times as a food, for flavoring and for medicinal purposes. During ancient times, Ayurvedic physicians used celery seed to treat people with colds, flu, water retention, poor digestion, bloating, flatulence, various types of arthritis, and certain ailments of the liver and spleen and kidney.

Today, celery seed is used primarily as a diuretic to promote the excretion of urine. The diuretic action combined with the presence of anti-bacterial compounds in celery seed also make it useful in treating urinary tract infections. Laboratory studies have found that compounds in celery seed and its essential oil may also help reduce muscle spasms, calm the nerves, and reduce inflammation. In fact, some experts claim that celery seed alleviates the pain associated with certain inflammatory health conditions such as arthritis and gout. It purifies the body and cleanses the kidneys, spleen and liver. Also help to dissolve uric acid crystals in patients with Gout. It has large amount of potassium and organic sodium that help the body to get rid of waste material by stimulating the sites of excreta such as the skin, rectum and kidneys. It contains vitamins A, C and B-complex. In addition, a few animal studies suggest that celery seed extracts may have activity to help lower blood pressure and cholesterol as well as protect the liver from damaging agents.
