– Three medium stalks of celery have about the same amount of potassium (325mg) as a small banana. We kid you not! This may help explain why celery should be part of any blood pressure lowering plan (hint: potassium helps regulate blood pressure).
Celery actually makes a wonderful electrolyte replacement post exercise. That’s because in addition to its high water and potassium content, it also contains small amounts of natural sodium (about 96mg in 3 stalks).
Celery contains compounds that repel cancer cells. Repel! They areknown as apigenin and luteolin, both of which help block something called angiogenesis, the process by which tumors form new blood vessels.
