Microgenics Celery 10,000 50 Capsules
Relieve symptoms of occasional episodes of gout
Celery acts as a mild anti-inflammatory. Because of this, it can bring mild relief inpainful, swollen joints as seen in arthritis and gout.
Celery can be especially beneficial during gout, a condition in which uric acid crystals have collected in the joints. It not only reduces the inflammation in the joint, but also helps reduce the build-up of uric acid crystals that cause the pain, and helps flush them out. This makes it an ideal herb for the treatment of gout.
Promote urine output to improve fluid retention
Fluid retention can occur when there is an excess accumulation of fluid in tissues, and can affect any part of the body. Symptoms of fluid retention include swollen hands or feet, stiffness in the affected body part, and the skin feeling too tight. In some cases, the skin may become indented for a few seconds when pushed on it. Fluid retention can be caused by a number of underlying conditions. It is always best to get fluid retention checked by a healthcare professional first.
Some of the most common causes for fluid retention include:
▪ Hot weather
▪ Circulatory problems
▪ Standing for long periods of time
▪ Hormonal fluctuations prior to the menstrual period or pregnancy
▪ Side effects of prescription medication Or more serious conditions such as:
▪ Kidney disease
▪ Liver disease
▪ Lung disease
▪ High blood pressure
Celery seeds have a long traditional use in fluid retention because they act as a diuretic and help promote urine output. Due to the fact they are rich in potassium and sodium, they can help maintain the fluid balance in the body, and assist with the removal of excess water from the body through urination. This makes celery a useful herb in oedema or fluid retention, when this is caused by build-up of excess fluid.
Urinary tract infections
Celery can also act as an antiseptic to the urinary tract, and bring relief during urinary tract infections and cystitis. Even though it is not certain that the herb has antimicrobial activity against microorganisms implicated in urinary tract infections, it can still bring relief due to its diuretic effects.
