    While celery is good for helping to lower blood pressure in "regular" people in part due to a chemical in celery that dilates blood vessels, make sure that you are not sodium sensitive as celery is very high in sodium and can trigger spikes in blood pressure if you have to much.

    I did't know that sounds harmless. I'll give it a try !!

    Thanks for the tips on celery, especially curbing the "SWEET" cravings...I have tried the Glucerna Chocolate Peanut mini-bar, they are great. Thanks again

celery and P.B. are one of my favorite afternoon snacks. and when the stalks
get too little a either chop them up and throw them in soup or make my own
veggie broth and put in freezer for later uses.
