I first came across the crazy idea of drinking ONLY celery juice, every morning, on an empty stomach from one of my pretty switched on galpals. I thought wow, I’m pretty easily persuaded so if you’re doing it, count me in. Little did I know the difference it would make for me personally!
After feeling the difference of drinking celery juice every morning for a week I decided to do some research and learnt that pure celery juice has unique regenerating and healing properties which are only enhanced when it’s juiced on its own. Not to mention bunches of celery around about 4 dollars, so why wouldn’t you try it!
Here are some of the amazing things that celery juice can do for your body:
- Heals The Gut
Celery contains special nutrients in its fibers which are released when the vegetable is juiced. These nutrients promote optimal functioning of the digestive tract by acting as a natural laxative and relaxing the nerves that have been damaged by unhealthy lifestyle and food choices. Celery juice is soothing and cooling to the digestive tract, which aids any inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract.
- Strengthens The Bones
Have you ever noticed that celery actually looks like bones? Celery is very high in calcium and silicon which help to regenerate and strengthen damaged bones. Celery is also high in Vitamin K which plays an important role in bone metabolism and protection against osteoporosis.
- Purifies The Blood Stream
Celery contains a particular compound called coumarins which promotes the activity of white blood cells and assists the vascular system. This helps the bloodflow, reduces blood pressure and purifies the bloodstream. Celery is rich in Vitamin A, C, iron, and magnesium. This combination helps to nourish and rebuild red blood cells and aids those suffering from rheumatism, high blood pressure, arthritis, and anemia.
- Highly Detoxifying
Drinking celery juice by itself, compared to mixing it with other ingredients, simplifies digestion and elimination, helping the body to cleanse, detoxify and restore.
Celery juice is highly anti-inflammatory. It holds an organic compound named polyacetylene, which inhibits acute inflammation in bone diseases like osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. and respiratory disorders like bronchitis, asthma.
- Hydrates Skin
The juice extracted from celery is high in water as 95% of the weight of the plant is water. Hence, drinking celery juice in a regular manner can fulfill our daily requirements of water and keeps our skin cells hydrated. As a result, we get soft and supple skin.
So if you want to be as happy as the above piccy, I suggest you try celery juice and see what happens!
