Efficacy of Standardized Celery Seed Extract in Patients with Chronic Painful Inflammatory Conditions : A Clinical Study
Celery seed extract is documented to be effective and safe. The extract has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and gastro-protective properties. Celery preparations have been used extensively since ancient times as natural therapies for managing acute and chronic painful or inflammatory conditions. Celery plant (Apium graveolens) is an indigenous plant from family Apiaceae. According to Ayurveda, the plant has a broad spectrum use as an aphrodisiac, anthelmintic, antispasmodic, carminative, diuretic, emmenagogue, laxative, sedative, stimulant, and toxin.
A single arm open-label, multi-centric study involving 50 doctors across India was carried out to investigate the efficacy of standardized celery seed extract tablets (Celery seed extract) for the treatment of chronic painful inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis in adults.
