There are three benefits of celery for men. First, celery for men is able to increase male sexual capacity by improving erections and providing the vital minerals needed to maintain seminal fluid and the function of the prostate gland. Second, celery is similar to a natural energy bar or drink. It delivers lots of water per serving as well as essential minerals and nutrients that can rebuild the body after sexual intercourse or a strenuous fitness routine. Finally, celery for men may enhance the synthesis of the steroid androstenone, which gets released in perspiration as a pheromone and may act as a sexual attractant.

Celery is packed with an organic chemical calle, phthalide. This compound is capable of dilating, or opening, blood vessels by attenuating the muscles lining the walls of the blood vessels. Celery for men will improve circulation, which can have a direct impact on the ability to have and maintain an erection.


Also rich in many vitamins and minerals that act as antioxidants, celery promotes the production and quality of sperm and seminal fluid. Celery for men is a great way to maintain fertility. It is essential to eat a healthy diet to improve fertility, and celery is capable of delivery lots of nutrients in just one serving. Celery also contains a compound called coumarin that buffers cells against free radical destruction and mutations. Coumarin has been shown to attenuate the size of the prostate glands and seminal vesicles without altering the concentration of testosterone in the body.

One of the unique features of celery is that it has a high water content. After a hard workout or sexual intercourse, the body is often depleted of both water and essential nutrients, such as magnesium and potassium. Eating several stalks of celery following physical activity is almost like eating an energy bar or drinking a sports drink. Celery provides water and nutrients while being low infat and high in cholesterol-reducing and blood pressure–lowering compounds.

Androstenone is a steroid pheromone, a chemical that communicates via scent. Celery contains this steroid, and when large quantities of this vegetable are consumed, andostenone may be released in greater amounts through perspiration. Many claim that this particular steroid pheromone may help to attract women to men, but concrete scientific evidence of this phenomenon is weak.

There are many ways for a man to easily incorporate celery into his diet. Celery can be eaten raw, added to a salad, or used when cooking chicken or making soups. The seasoning, celery seed, can also be added to salads and meats. If celery is unpalatable, celery supplements are available at most health food stores.

@anon312146: That is not what the attraction theory is saying. It is completely unreasonable to expect someone to fall head over heals based on pheromones. The thing is, pheromones can be odorless. When compounded with other factors such as physical attractiveness and voice and such, they are not a huge factor; however, they can add to it, and we can do nothing about it because it is in our primal nature. Do you like someone more when they smell good or bad? That's what I thought.

I don't buy the attraction benefits. As far as I know, there are no known scientific studies that women (or men, for that matter) feel more attracted to a person "spiced" with pheromones.

Attraction between people isn't based on smell alone. You don't go blindfolded into a room, sniff a little and fall for someone head over heels.

@ddljohn-- I haven't really paid attention to the attraction benefit of celery but it certainly helps with sexual performance.

The pheromone attraction theory makes sense to me though because I have read that attraction between people are completely based on the pheromones emitted through our sweat. Our brain recognizes certain pheromones and reacts to it and this is what we call attraction.

It can't hurt to try celery for this, can it?

I've never been much of a celery fan. I don't mind it in small amounts cooked in soups and stews but I can't bear it raw. It's too hard to chew and digest for me.

After finding out about its sexual advantages for men, however, I think it's worth a try. There are men who take medications for improved sexual performance that are dangerous and have negative side effects. It's much better to have something natural and safe like celery.

Also, does anyone know more about celery making men more attractive to women because of pheromones? Has anyone experienced something like this?

So do all parts of the celery plant-- the stalks, the root and the seeds contain all of the benefits mentioned here? Does it matter which I consume?
