Comments

Celery is widely consumed as a vegetable, its medical use is less known. For its herbal use, celery grains are usually used, which are very rich in essential oil . These grains are recommended in case of cystitis  and must be taken in the form of an infusion.
Celery branches or stems, consumed directly or in the form of juice, are sometimes recommended as natural remedies for gout. It is recommended to consume the equivalent of about 4 celery stalks a day to combat gout .
