Nutritional values

Essential oils in celery help combat bacteria in the mouth, throat, and stomach. 

When eating celery, use organic if possible. They have comparatively little nitrate, which is converted in the body to the unfavourable nitrite, hindering the transport of oxygen in the blood and potentially developing harmful nitrosamines.
