Lower your blood pressure with celery.

For centuries, "celery has been used in Asia as a folk remedy for high blood pressure," according to Prevention Magazine. Researchers at the Univ. of Chicago Medical Center actually tested this ancient remedy after one man persuaded them. His persistence paid off in spades! Within one week of participation in the study, his blood pressure plummeted from 158/96 to 118/82.
Later, the researchers began testing the celery theory on lab animals. Once again, within one week, the animals' blood pressures dropped an average of 12 to 14 percent! Celery was found to relax the muscles of the arteries that regulate blood pressure allowing the vessels to dilate.
