What is Swanson Celery Seed?
Swanson Celery Seed or Apium Graveolens is the seed harvested from the flower of the celery plant. To taste, it has a spicy flavour and a strong aroma that we are all familiar with. This distinctive sensory profile is caused by the healing compound 3-nbutylphthalide or 3nB.
In addition to 3nB. Swanson Celery Seeds also include:
- Antioxidant Flavanoids
- Volatile Oils
- Coumarin, which can act as an anticoagulant
- Omega-6 fatty acid, Linoleic Acid
What is Swanson Celery Seed used for?
Traditional Oriental medicine was so convinced of the healing properties of Celery Seed that it was used to aid a vast range of common afflictions.
The 3nB has been documented as having a strong capacity to heal the body. The organic chemical compound Phthalides works in a dual capacity within our bodies by both healing and relaxing. The result of this sedative or relaxant effect is a potential aid to hypertension assisting our blood pressure to lower.
The potential to help us doesn’t stop there though. Swanson Celery Seed is also known to have a diuretic effect. It is for this reason that it has been known for its ability to flush out our systems and help relieve the symptoms of gout.
