Celery is a low-calorie vegetable that is high in dietary fiber; use of it can be traced back to the 7th century. Celery seeds have been used in pills since around 30 AD. One cup of raw celery contains about 19 calories. It is high in vitamin K and can also help with respiratory problems, arthritis, and kidney issues.

Celery allergies are comparable to the severity of peanut allergies in some cases. Celery should not be used during pregnancy or if you are suffering from a kidney infection. Celery can be found in capsule and fluid extract form.
