In the Middle Ages, celery had its place in the pharmacy as a diuretic. Rightly so, experts say, and still praise the beneficial effect of the tubers as a blood cleansing and draining agent of the gentle and delicious kind.

The rumor that celery is good for the libido is persistent. You think it's true? To date, no one has been able to prove it - but no one has been able to refute it! What is certain, however, is that the essential oils, minerals and vitamins have health benefits in any case.
