Apium graveolens, or celery belongs to the Apiaceae family and is native to Southern Europe. Currently Celery is grown and consumed as a vegetable in many parts of the world. Celery is a branched biennial plant, has thick dense branches and stems, and can grow up to 1 m.
The leaves are triangular, diamond, or spear-shaped and are about 5-50 mm long. Leaf edges are lobed and serrated, the stems of this plant are branched, moist and ribbed. Celery plant parts, such as stalks, leaves, oleoresins, and seeds can be used for flavouring foods.
Celery can be grown every season but grows faster in cloudy, cool, and slightly hot regions. It has been used in traditional medication to manage stomach aches and spasms in addition to its use as a laxative, diuretic, and sedative.
This herb has also been used as a heart tonic to lower blood pressure (in traditional African medicine in Tobago and Trinidad.) We at Nature’s Laboratory produce various products of Apium graveolens, such as celery seed tincture, fluid extracts, seed powder, and whole seed.
