We’ve been getting a lot of questions about celery juice lately. How much celery should I juice? When should I drink it? Is it better to blend it or drink it straight? It seems like, overnight, celery juice became unexpectedly popular. We’re totally on-board, but also a little surprised. Celery isn’t some exotic superfood—it’s celery! Why is everyone suddenly so interested in this veggie-herb?
If you’ve seen the recent article on the benefits of celery juice by the Medical Medium, it becomes clear why celery juice has suddenly become such a massive health trend. He recommends celery juice for healing, and the article contains a lot of interesting information and theories. But we’ve loved celery for a long time because it’s a proven healer! Upon cursory glance, celery might seem relatively low in nutrition—it’s mostly water, after all. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Celery has tremendous healing potential. According to Sproutman’s book, Power Juices Super Drinks:
Celery is naturally rich in antioxidants, fiber, and certain important vitamins and minerals (including crucial electrolytes like potassium and sodium).
Celery juices aids in treating such respiratory ailments as asthma and bronchitis.
In studies, its active constituent coumarin reduced blood pressure by up to 14% in patients with hypertension! Additionally, celery contains the phyt onutrient phthalides, which has been shown in studies to also effectively reduce high blood pressure.
Celery is known to stimulate the beneficial production of stomach acid, which means it’s great for digestion. Plus, there’s a chemical in celery that helps to protect the lining of the GI tract, making it ideal for reducing intestinal inflammation. Celery is also effective in helping to prevent colon and stomach cancers.
Celery can help balance blood sugar, calm the central nervous system, and help soothe inflammatory skin conditions.
The mineral salts in the celery juice give extra support to other heavy metal detox foods by helping to flush metals out of the liver.
Sounds pretty great, right? (Check out Power Juices Super Drinks for loads more valuable information and great recipes!)
We’ve been drinking celery juice since we were kids, but it’s good to know that so many people are getting excited about this humble-yet-powerful plant juice. While some people are fond of drinking hardcore morning shots of straight celery, you can ease your way in with a tastier drink and still reap the benefits. Here’s one of Ari’s favorite cleansing drinks:
