Other foods rich in potassium that you can explore include banana or other fruits (such as oranges, apples, apricots, and strawberries), certain fish (like salmon, sardines, and flounder), skinless breast chicken, etc. Other veggies that are rich in potassium include carrots, spinach, dry beans, tomato, and even potatoes.

When you ask about how much celery you need in order to lower your high blood pressure, medically there may be no exact answer of the question or the answer may vary from person to person.

In general, here is a table of RDA ‘Recommended Dietary Allowance’ for potassium (table source; NIH ‘the National Institutes of Health’):

While lack of dietary potassium (hypokalemia) can increase the risk of hypertension, it’s also important to consume this mineral not too much. Too much accumulation of potassium in the bloodstream is medically called as hyperkalemia, and it is also not good for the health of your heart (especially for your heart rhythms).

So make sure you get this mineral in the range of the recommended dietary allowance as mentioned before!
