Celery (boiled, without salt) is a type of vegetable that provides multiple health benefits. When boiled and consumed without added salt, celery can be an excellent source of dietary fiber, vitamins A and C as well as minerals such as potassium and magnesium. Rich in antioxidants, it helps reduce inflammation and oxidative stress while protecting cells against damage caused by free radicals. Additionally, the low calorie content makes it ideal for those seeking to maintain a healthy weight or lose excess body fat. The main downside to boiling celery before eating is that this process reduces its nutrient density compared with raw celery since some nutrients are cooked away during the boiling process; however this may not apply if steaming is used instead of boiling water. Moreover, because many people find the taste bland when prepared without adding any seasonings or condiments like butter or margarine – though these ingredients will increase caloric intake – it can quickly become unappealing given the lack of flavor options available when consuming boiled celery sans seasoning/salt additions.
