The Benefits of Celery Juice
Celery Juice– while it may sound unappealing by itself, celery juice has incredible health benefits and I assure you that you will fall in love with the flavor and freshness of it all!
With all the healing properties celery juice has, it can easily be the ‘Ultimate Superfood’.
How did I hear about this?
Just Celery Juice
I first heard of drinking celery juice from the Medical Medium, Anthony William. I had read that celery juice was a miracle “drug” and I needed to know more. I always juiced celery into my green juices, but never by itself!
After much research, I learned of all the amazing healing properties that celery juice contained. I completed the Medical Medium cleanse in hopes to balance my hormones, and part of the protocol was to drink celery juice every morning to cleanse the liver. Cleansing the liver is important as the liver helps with digestion, creates proteins for the body and rids the body of waste. If you liver is ‘dirty’ (as most peoples’ are) then you are not living your best, fulfilling life.
Let’s discuss a few of those amazing benefits now!
Can Celery Juice Heal All?
There are numerous health benefits to drinking celery juice– probably too many to fit into one post, so I will touch up on some of the most powerful ones.
Celery juice calms inflammation in the body. This is exceptionally helpful for those who have autoimmune diseases; Lyme disease, Raynaud’s syndrome, diabetes, acne, vertigo and celiac disease– just to name a few!
Balances Your Body’s pH
Why is this important? Well in order to digest foods properly, your body needs to have the helpful hydrochloric acid to break down the foods, otherwise the food will sit in your intestines in a “rotten” stage and create bad acids in your body.
Purifies The Blood Stream
The sodium from the celery keeps our blood from becoming too thick, which in turn improves blood pressure, and blood flow. Celery is rich in Vitamin A, C, iron and magnesium. This is vital for red blood cell nourishment and repair– and will help those suffering from high blood pressure, anemia, and arthritis.
Packed With Fiber
Celery contains an abundance of fiber– 2 grams for every cup. Fiber not only helps you have a full bowel movement, but it also controls the absorption of sugar in the blood, which aids in the prevention of type 2 diabetes. Yes, you will lose some of that fiber as you juice the celery, but you will still be filled adequately with fiber– don’t worry.
When & How Should I Drink It?
You can drink celery juice any time of the day (the more, the merrier), but to get the best results you should drink it in the morning on an empty stomach.
There are two ways of making celery juice:
1. With a juicer. I usually juice 1.5 bunches of celery for my juice (makes about 16oz).
2. With a blender. After you blend you can use a filter of choice (Cheesecloth, strainer) to remove excess pulp.
Drink Celery Juice– Lead Happier, Healthier Life
It seems pretty simple, and for once IT IS!
Celery is cheap, easy to wash and juice and even easier to consume. Give yourself a bit of time to get used to the taste, especially if you are used to rich and bold flavors. (Buy organic celery whenever possible!)
You will feel hydrated, energized and satiated after it– and it won’t take long to feel the incredible benefits of drinking it.
Have fun & Celery juice on!
