The seed of the celery plant has a long history of traditional use among many herbal traditions of the world, including the Unani tradition (ancient Persia and Arabia), Ayurveda (India), and traditional Chinese medicine.
Modern research has uncovered that much of celery seed’s bioactivity is due to the presence of phytonutrients called phthalides. Of these, 3-n-butylphthalide (3nB) is one of the most well researched. Our Celery Seed Extract is concentrated and standardized to contain 85% 3-n-butylphthalide as total phthalides.
One capsule provides the same level of 3nB as 4-6 sticks of celery.
Recommended adult use: 2 capsules daily or as directed by a health care practitioner.
