    question about celery seed extract


    Can someone look at the following two ingredient profiles for celery seed extracts and tell me which one is the best? The first is the 85% 3nb, but has a lower dose/cap. The second is only 15% 3nb, with a much larger dose/cap...

    Supplement Facts
    Serving Size 1 Capsules
    Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
    Celery 75 mg **
    (Apium graveolens) seed extract(standardized to contain 85% 3-n-butylphthalide calculated as total phthalides)

    OR...

    Utilizing a 6:1 standardized extract, Celery Seed-Power constituents include volatile oil, which contains terpenes, especially limonene (60-70%) and selinene (5-10%) and approximately 15% phtalides, principally 3-n-butyl phtalides and its 4.5-dihydro derivative sedanenolide.
    Supplement Facts

    Servings Per Container: 30
    Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
    Certified Potency Celery Seed Extract (standardized for 2.2% volatile oils) 900 mg
    Celery Seed 100 mg

    It helps with blood pressure, especially when on-cycle.

    Celery seed extract works as a mild diuretic to promote fluid loss from intravascular spaces decreasing the workload on the heart. It also mimics a calcium channel blocker to prevent arterial constriction allowing blood to be pumped throughout the body much easier.

    I don't know the exact answer to your question, but i do know celery seed extract is typically dosed in 75mg pills for a total of 150 a day. I have never seen it dosed any other way other that if its a crappy extract, so I would opt for your first choice.

    That was my thought, too. I was hoping that the second one would be comparable because its about half the price, but I think I'm just going to stick with the first one. I've used it before, and it definitely keeps the bp in check.

    Thanks for everyone's feedback...
