Abstract
Hypertension or high blood pressure is an increase in systolic blood pressure more than 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure more than 90 mmHg on two measurements with an interval of five minutes in a state of rest / calm. Basically, hypertension management can be done pharmacologically and non- pharmacologically. One of the non-pharmacological treatments is to use celery. Celery contains apigenin which is very useful for prevent narrowing of blood vessels and high blood pressure. In addition, celery also contains flavonoids, vitamin C, apiin, calcium, and magnesium which can help lower high blood pressure. Celery for consumption in juice form and cooking water. This study aims to analyze the differences in the effectiveness of celery juice and celery boiled water in reduce blood pressure in patients with hypertension. This study used a pre post experimental design. The number of respondents in the work place of the Simalingkar Community Health Center was 40 respondents. With 20 respondents were given juice and 20 respondents were given boiled water with a significance level of <0.05.The results showed that the systole p value of 0.000 (<0.05) and diastole 0.001 (<0.05), which means that there are difference between giving celery juice and celery boiled water to reduce blood pressure. The average difference between systole and dystole after celery juice was 29 mmHg and 16 mmHg, while celery boild water was found the average difference between systole and dystole 15 mmHg and 10 mmHg, so it can be concluded that celery juice is more effective than celery boiled water to reduction of hypertension.
