How it works
Celery seed has traditionally been used to assist in the relief of symptoms of gout, arthritis and rheumatism. Celery has been found to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity, as well as significant diuretic properties.
Gout is a type of arthritis caused by an increased concentration of uric acid. Uric acid is the end product of purine metabolism. Foods high in purines therefore contribute to the body's production of uric acid. These foods include organ meats (eg. liver, kidneys, brains, heart, lambs fry), prawns, lobster, oysters, salami, pate, sardines and anchovies.
When uric acid crystals are deposited in joints, tendons, kidneys and other tissues they cause inflammation and damage. Celery seed can increase the elimination of uric acid from the kidneys.
From a traditional naturopathic perspective accumulation of waste substances in the body can contribute to arthritis and rheumatism. Celery stimulates the enzyme glutathione-S-transferase which helps clear accumulated toxic substances from the body.
Adults - Take 1 to 2 capsules daily with food.
Children under 12 years - Not recommended.
