This study used a pre post experimental design. The number of respondents in the work area of ​​the Simalingkar Community Health Center was 10 respondents with a significance level of <0.05. The results showed that the systole p value was 0.000 (<0.05) and the diastole was 0.000 (<0.05), which means that celery juice had a significant effect on reducing blood pressure. The mean reduction in systolic blood pressure was 30 mmHg and distolic 14 mmHg.
