Celery (Apium graveolens L., Apiaceae) is one of the popular aromatic vegetables and part of the daily diet around the world. In this study, aqueous-ethanolic and hexane extracts of celery seed were prepared and the amount of n-butylphthalide, as an active component, was determined in each extract. Then the effects of hexanic extract on systolic, diastolic, mean arterial blood pressure and heart rate were evaluated in an invasive rat model. The vasodilatory effect and possible mechanisms of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper



Antihypertensive effect of celery seed on rat blood pressure in chronic administration.

It can be concluded that celery seed extracts have antihypertensive properties, which appears to be attributable to the actions of its active hydrophobic constitutes such as NBP and can be considered as an anti Hypertensive agent in chronic treatment of elevated BP.


Data suggest that both aqueous and ethanol extracts of celery caused the hypotensive, negative inotropic and chronotropic effects, which could partially be mediated via stimulation of muscarinic receptors.

Protective effect of 3-n-butylphthalide against hypertensive nephropathy in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

The results showed that NBP effectively attenuated progression of hypertensive nephropathy by decreasing urinary albumin excretion and blood urea nitrogen levels and alleviated tubular impairment and significantly decreased oxidative stress.

Cardiovascular Effects Induced by Linalool in Normotensive and Hypertensive Rats

It is demonstrated that linalool reduces blood pressure probably due to a direct effect on the vascular smooth muscle leading to vasodilation.

A toxicological investigation of a celery seed extract having anti-inflammatory activity

Toxicological investigations were undertaken with an alcoholic extract (A-CSE) of celery which has been shown to possess anti-inflammatory activity, gastro-protective activity, and anti-Helicobacter pylori activity, suggesting that there are no toxicologically significant effects in rats.

Antihyperglycemic/ Hypoglycemic Effect of Celery Seeds (Ajwain / Ajmod) in Streptozotocin induced Diabetic Rats

The results show Celery seeds extract treatment caused a statistically significant decrease in the elevated serum glucose levels and increase in the serum insulin concentrations in test group C as compared to group B.

Protective and antidiabetic effects of extract from Nigella sativa on blood glucose concentrations against streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic in rats: an experimental study with histopathological evaluation

Results showed that hydroalcholic extract of NS at low doses has hypoglycemic effect and ameliorative effect on regeneration of pancreatic islets and may be used as a therapeutic agent in the management of diabetes mellitus.

Antihypertensive effect of Nigella sativa seed extract in patients with mild hypertension

The results suggest that the daily use of NS seed extract for 2 months may have a blood pressure‐lowering effect in patients with mild HT.
