- The benefit of celery seed extract in high blood pressure is its apparent safety and the fact that it has a very unusual mechanism of action as a diuretic.
- Most diuretics change the ratio of sodium to potassium in the blood and as a result, dangerous side effects can occur as a result of either too much potassium or sodium.
- In contrast, celery seed extract acts as a diuretic but does not alter the ratio of sodium to potassium in the blood.
- No other contraindications are presently known.
- Persons taking the drug Coumadin (warfarin) should be closely monitored by their health care practitioner when starting to use celery extract as a precautionary measure.
Pregnancy and Nursing: Since the effects of celery seed extract have not been evaluated for safety in pregnancy, it is generally recommended that it should not be used during pregnancy or lactation.
Seniors: No special precautions are known.
