Celery Seed Extract For Gout
Learn how celery can treat gout
Those green stalks in your refrigerator can do a lot more than hold peanut butter! Components of celery can actually help treat gout.
Celery seeds, in particular, have been to treat gout. Celery seed oil contains natural phthalides, such as 3-n-butyl phthalide (3nB). These phthalides are what give celery its distinct odor.
While research on celery seed extract is still in its early stages, researchers are particularly excited about 3nB.
In one 12-week pilot study, 15 subjects (suffering from osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, or gout) received 34 mg of a proprietary celery seed extract standardized to contain 85% phthalides twice daily. Participants experienced significant pain relief after three weeks, and most achieved maximum benefit after six weeks of use.
In a larger 70-patient study, participants received 75 mg of celery extract twice daily for three weeks. At this higher dosage, subjects reported even better results than in the pilot study. Statistically and clinically significant reductions were noted in pain scores, mobility, and quality of life.
