Natural Factors Celery Seed Extract is standardized to contain 85% 3-n-butyl phthalide or 3nB - a compound that is unique to celery and is responsible for the characteristic flavour and odour of celery. One capsule provides the same level of 3nB as 4 to 6 ribs of celery. 3nB was discovered as the active component of celery in response to investigations by researchers seeking to explain some of the medicinal effects of celery including the lowering of blood pressure, the relief of arthritis and especially gout.
