    Celery Seed Extract


    I recently had some slight blood pressure issues from my current supplement cycle. While the symptoms of it were mild, any symptoms at all of this nature I do not take lightly.I have never experienced BP issues on any other supps or in general so I do not regularly take Hawthorne for this.

    I bought Celery seed extract from a local vitamin shoppe (thier brand) and took 1500 mg (dosage on the label). I noticed signifigant relief from symptoms within hours. I have contiued this 1500 mg dose three times daily now for six days and have had no further symptoms, even with the raising of dosage of my cycle. Think I'll be adding this to my cycles from now on

    It's great stuff for BP, has pain killing, anti-inflammatory and vasodialting properties as well.

    There's an old thread on it around here somewhere.

    I was thinking of trying it, but I heard it makes you pee a lot? Any truth to that?

    very mild diuretic. The mechanism of action is relaxation of the smooth muscle fiber around blood vessels. It works very well. Just be certain to get one with a high 3nB content like this

    I've been using that brand for almost a month now, 2 caps twice a day.
    It's had little to no effect on my bp.

    What were the symptons of the HBP ? I think I had
    similar issues, which Cel Seed seemed to help, but I'm not sure as i never had it checked.
    I'm close to your age as well.

    No symtoms, I get it checked once a week by paramedics a block from my house (they do free checks every Tuesday) .
    With or without the celery extract it read 148/90.

    With hawthorne berry I was able to get it down to 122/76.
    I'll be ordering more hawthorne berry.

    Everyone is different. Hawthorn berry did nothing for me but CS and c12 peptides worked great for me. I switch between the two.

    Aren't there a few different causes for high BP? If so, that may explain why different things work for different people.

    Celery seed extract contains goitrins; naturally occuring compounds similar to drugs used to treat hyperthyroidism (such as thiouracil). There have been numerous cases of patients with stabilised thyroid conditions (hypothyroidism) relapsing after taking celery seed extract preparations to treat unrelated conditions such as arthritis or fluid retention. By saying this I am not stipulating that taking celery seed extract may precipitate a chronic hypothyroid condition but making people aware that celery seed extract preparations decrease your metabolism which may decrease anabolism and increase fat gain.

    Very good information, I was getting ready to buy some, but I found something called Peptace, it's fish protien peptides, and it works just like an ace inhibitor, I've been on it for 1 week and seeing great results...

    I'm a little bit confused. This : http://www.nutraplanet.com/product_i...roducts_id=592 says 75mg per cap, serving size = 1 cap. 85% of that 75mg is 3nB...

    FOCUS, you report taking 1500mg 3x daily. You mean a WHOLE BOTTLE of this stuff every day? I have this and have been dosing, with little effect. Potassium chloride seems more effective.

    i've researched celery seed and used it w/ greatsuccess in lowering blood pressure but this is the 1st info i got that may produce some negatives. do you have any studies that show that celery can decrease the metabolism?

    What I purchased was capped celery seed, not an extract, which is why the dosage difference. All apologies for any confusion

    i find that its cheaper just buying the whole herb (about $5) and in this case you would use 1 tsp. tid to get the proper amount of 3nb. when i'm on-cycle w/o celery seed my bp is around 160/100 but w/ celery seed and dandelion leaf-its a good diuretic/lowers bp-my bp is around 125/68. these 2 herbs make a huge difference.

    I'll second the C-12, I used the Twinlab BP Control and noticed good results but it's about 10-15 days worth for around 20 bucks, yikes. And that's at online discounts.
