Here’s the first obvious truth: celery juice is GOOD FOR YOU.
Before you start throwing celery at the computer, here are TWENTY ONE scientific facts we know about celery juice.
If you’re a health junky like me, you got excited when something new came to help improve your health.
But if you are a skeptic and aren’t sure, these TWENTY ONE celery juice benefits will get you sipping celery juice in no time.
Enjoying fresh celery juice on an empty stomach, before a meal can help you lose weight and burn belly fat. As a negative calorie food, it is said celery will actually end up burning calories for you.
Celery juice is high in Vitamin K. Vitamin K positively effects your bone metabolism by helping to balance calcium levels. Maintaining proper calcium levels will increase bone mineral density. Huh? This basically means your bones are stronger and are at less risk of breaking or fracturing.
Celery juice contains high amounts of Vitamin K. Vitamin K is essential for blood clotting. You know, when you’re bleeding, clotting is needed to stop the bleeding. If you don’t have enough Vitamin K, then your body would have trouble healing itself…. Ouch! (Eating 10000x celery juice will not make you Wolverine though. Nice try.)
Vitamin K (yes more benefits from Vitamin K) also increases cognitive health (especially in older adults). Studies have shown that it prevents cell death in the brain and will help improve memory.
Celery juice contains pectic polysaccharides, which studies which have shown to improve your digestive system, keeping you more regular and less bloated.
(Finally, a cheap acne mediation!) Acne is essentially caused by foods or bacteria that cause inflammation. Our body responds to inflammation, which leads to pus and cystic acne. Celery contains sodium clusters that are typically toxic to bacteria and are anti-inflammatory, fighting the source of the acne.
Who doesn’t struggle with getting enough water throughout the day (I know I do) . Celery is literally 95% water- so you can get a mini snack and stay hydrated.
Cholesterol is this “gunk” that builds up in your arteries that makes you more at risk for heart attack and stroke. You’ve got to eat and not-eat a lot of foods to keep cholesterol in check. Have no fear, University of Chicago showed that phthalide compounds found in celery juice reduced cholesterol in patients by 7%.
The same University of Chicago study showed that celery’s phthalate compounds reduced blood pressure in patients by 18%. The other vitamins present in celery also work to lower your blood pressure.
Celery juice is SUPER high in antioxidants. Why are antioxidants even important? They neutralize the free radicals from you body. Free radicals cause aging and are linked to other various diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and cancer.
Celery juice lowers your blood pressure and reduces your cholesterol levels. This helps lighten the load for your heart. Overworking your heart will strain your heart muscles and thicken them, leading to heart failure.
Celery juice is shown to help protect the liver from the toxins we put in our body by increasing the antioxidant content.
Studies have shown that celery has helped lower blood glucose levels, which can help those with diabetes. (Or help those who snack on a lot of sweets, but shame! shame! shame!)
Celery contains mineral salts that support your central nervous system to help ease anxiety, brain fog, and even depression.
Celery’s properties help aid in neurotransmitter synthesis and performance to help drown out the extra noise and let you sleep. Bonus: the magnesium in the celery juice promotes relaxation.
What is your thyroid? It is a gland that regulates hormones for your metabolism. If your thyroid is all out of wack, you could be over eating or under-eating. Celery juice helps cleanse your thyroids, to consistently regulate your eating patterns.
Gatorade or Powerade may be your current go to post work out drink, but celery juice has all the electrolytes (aka natural sodium and potassium) that helps keep your body working at peak energy. All the chemicals added in sports drinks aren’t necessarily good for your body and have preservatives and fake coloring.
Celery is an excellent source of Vitamin B2 which helps protect your eye from diseases. Studies have shown that B2 is linked to a reduced risk of developing cataracts.
Potassium present in celery juice enhances muscle strength. Your muscles need sodium and potassium to be able to contract. Without them, your muscles will be weak or even cramp.
Feeling like you are in a rut? Celery juice is a great source of Vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 plays a vital role in mood stabilization. Vitamin B6 is necessary for making the happy neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Getting Vitamin B6 from food is essential because your body cannot produce it on its own.
We all know eating your vitamins fresh is better than pharmaceutical vitamin pills. It’s important to know what foods you should consume to get the vitamins you need. In one cup of celery you get: Vitamin K (37% DV), Potassium (8%), Vitamin C (5 %), Manganese (5%), Vitamin B6 (4%), Calcium (4%) Vitamin B2 (3%), Magnesium (3%). Drinking a CUP of celery juice, you can consume 3x those values.
