Celery helps joints and connective tissue

Celery is a terrific food for appetite control and can be used at the end of a meal (or any time, actually) to stem carb cravings. It just might be the number-one medicinal food for blood pressure thanks to phytochemicals called pthalides, which work by relaxing the muscle tissue in artery walls and therefore increasing blood flow. Also, because of celery’s silicon content (a nutrient for bone health), it can help renew joints, bones, arteries, and all connective tissue.
