Celery Seeds: A Natural Solution for a Healthy Heart and Lower Blood Pressure

In this video, Dr. Alan Mandel discusses the medicinal healing properties of celery seeds, specifically their benefits for cardiovascular health. Celery seeds have diuretic properties that aid in the elimination of excessive fluid from the body, reducing bloating and lowering blood pressure. They also cause vasodilation, enlarging blood vessels and improving blood flow. Additionally, celery seeds help reduce arterial stiffness, promoting a healthier cardiovascular system. Dr. Mandel encourages viewers to incorporate celery seeds into their diet and suggests various ways to use them. He emphasizes the importance of reducing sodium intake and hidden sources of sodium in packaged and processed foods.

Key Insights:

  • Celery seeds have medicinal healing properties and are commonly used in culinary cooking.
  • Celery seeds have powerful diuretic properties that help eliminate excessive fluid from the body, reducing bloating and lowering blood pressure.
  • Excessive sodium intake from packaged, canned, and frozen foods can lead to fluid retention and elevated blood pressure.
  • Celery seeds cause vasal dilation, enlarging blood vessels and reducing resistance, which helps lower blood pressure and improve blood circulation.
  • The bioactive compounds in celery seeds, primarily thides, impact the nitric oxide pathway, promoting relaxation of arterial smooth muscles and further lowering blood pressure.
  • Celery seeds also help reduce arterial stiffness, which improves flexibility and reduces arterial pressure.
  • It is recommended to incorporate more celery seeds into the diet, either by adding them to meals or through supplementation.
  • Using celery seeds can aid in maintaining a healthier cardiovascular system, reducing the risk of potential problems in the heart, brain, kidneys, and eyes.


So here are celery seeds, celery seeds. Where do celery seeds come from? They come from the celery plant. But there’s one thing about celery seeds – they have amazing medicinal healing properties when it comes to our health. And what I want to talk about today, which is probably one of the most important things worldwide, is our cardiovascular system.

Our blood pressure, our heart, our arteries, as well as reducing sodium levels. That bloating, look down at your stomach. Do you feel bloated? Are your pants tight? Do you feel distended? Are you getting cramping? Well, guess what? They go hand in hand. If we can reduce bloating naturally and reduce that blood pressure and keep our heart healthy, we are in a win-win situation.

Celery seeds have phytonutrients, antioxidants, bioactive compounds that can do wonderful things for the health and wealth of our body. Celery seeds are commonly used worldwide in culinary cooking, meats, stews, soups, wherever you want to use it. And the objective here is to start using celery seeds, which I’ll get back to at the end of this program. But first, I want you to understand the healing medicinal properties and what this can do for your heart, your blood pressure, to keep you around a long, long time and keep you healthy.

But first, you must know that celery seeds have powerful diuretic properties. And we know our kidneys are the primary organ responsible for filtering the blood and regulating fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. And the compounds found in celery seeds impact the reabsorption of sodium and water in the renal tubules by inhibiting the reabsorption of these substances.

Celery seeds help enhance the excretion of sodium and water through urine, thus aiding in the elimination of excessive fluid from the body. And I want you to know that when you retain excessive fluid, generally from too much sodium, and you may not be putting excessive sodium on your food, but if you only knew how much hidden sodium there is in packaged foods, canned foods, frozen foods, you will be shocked. The majority of people are eating way too much sodium, and therefore we’re retaining way too much fluid. Too much fluid means elevated blood pressure. As we reduce that fluid, the blood pressure will go down, taking away all that stress from the heart, as well as keeping our organs much, much healthier.

And women, yes, you may notice when you’re distended and bloated, you feel miserable. You can’t get in your pants. You’re uncomfortable when you lie down. You’re putting on all that excessive weight. Yes, males, you too as well. Don’t think that you can get away from this one. But when it comes to our blood vessels, that’s where the blood circulates to the organs, tissues, and glands of our body.

Celery seeds cause vasal dilation. What does that mean? That means that those vessels start to enlarge, they get bigger, less resistance. The pressure of the heart comes down dramatically, lowering that blood pressure, making it so much easier for that blood to circulate through your entire body. And the bioactive compounds in celery seeds, primarily thides, are believed to influence the release or the activity of signaling molecules involved in the smooth muscle relaxation, which is the key process in vasal dilation, allowing those vessels to become larger.

And celery seed affects the nitric oxide pathway. Nitric oxide is a key signaling molecule involved in the regulation of vascular tone. And while this impacts the production and bioavailability of nitric oxide, this promotes relaxation of those arterial smooth muscles as well, leading to vasal dilation, improved blood flow, and lower blood pressure.

And celery seeds help reduce that arterial stiffness. So if this is the inside of the artery right in here, and that blood is coming through that artery, when it’s stiff and it doesn’t have that flexibility, arterial pressure goes higher. But as you keep more flexibility in there, it’s easier on the heart, blood pressure comes down, which allows you to stay healthier.

I challenge you to start using more celery seeds in your diet. Look up the different ways to prepare it, start supplementing it in your stew, your meats, your soups, or however you like. They do come in capsules, usually around 500 mg. But this has a nice aroma, distinct flavor. And again, it’s organic, it’s natural, something that could do a lot of wonderful things to get rid of that fluid retention, that bloating, lowering your blood pressure, taking potential problems away from your heart, your brain, your kidneys, your eyes, keeping that blood pressure under control. That’s what it’s all about.
