This substance is an antioxidant. Celery is often eaten, especially the leaves of celery. It is very helpful to prevent hypertension and atherosclerosis, and has an auxiliary therapeutic effect.
Celery is a herbaceous plant of Umbelliferae (Apiaceae or Umbelliferae), the scientific name of which is Apium graveolens. Originated in the Mediterranean region and the Middle East. Ancient Greeks and Romans were used for seasoning, and ancient China was also used for medicine. The shape of ancient celery is similar to that of today's wild celery. At the end of the 18th century, celery was bred to form large, juicy, fleshy, erect petioles. The edible part is its petiole. Celery is characterized by many tendons, but in recent years it has developed some varieties with few tendons, such as Pascal. In Europe, celery is usually used as a vegetable cook or as a seasoning for soups and stews; in the United States, raw celery is often used as an appetizer or salad. Celery fruit (or seeds) is small and has a plant-like aroma. It can be used as seasoning, especially in soups and pickles. Celery seeds contain about 2?3% essential oil, and the main components are d-mo (C10H16, or limonene) and Selene (C15H24).
