Celery seeds contain a natural phytochemical called 3-n-butylphthalide (3nb).
According to Chinese Medical Journal cited by NIH (National Institute of Health) from the United States, 3nb has become an important adjunct for ischemic stroke. In vascular dementia, the clinical application of 3nb to treat severe cognitive dysfunction syndrome caused by the hypoperfusion of brain tissue during cerebrovascular disease is also increasing. Evidence also suggests that 3nb has a therapeutic effect for neurodegenerative diseases. Many animal experiments have found that it can also improve symptoms in other neurologic diseases such as epilepsy, cerebral edema, and decreased cognitive function caused by severe acute carbon monoxide poisoning. Moreover, 3nb has therapeutic effects for diabetes, diabetes-induced cataracts, and non-neurologic diseases such as atherosclerosis. Mechanistically, 3nb mainly improves microcirculation and protects mitochondria. Its broad pharmacologic effects also include inhibiting oxidative stress, nerve cell apoptosis, inflammatory responses, anti-platelet, anti-thrombotic effects and lowering the blood pressure via its diuretic effect.
