Lately there is this trend going on about the celery juice diet. This entails drinking a whole celery on an empty stomach and then waiting for at least 30 minutes before food.
Since a few friends started doing it and I thought of giving it a try I now since a month have been having my daily celery juice. You can either do it with a smoothie (then you want to add a bit of water, otherwise you won’t be able to blend it) or a juicer. Below a few benefits I came across when doing online research
Main Health Benefits of Celery Juice
Celery has powerful anti-inflammatory effects
These anti-inflammatory properties can help with acid reflux, bloating, IBS, constipation, acne, eczema, and other inflammation issues in the body.
Celery juice is very high in vitamin K which promotes general bone and heart health.
Because of celery’s diuretic properties (high water content) and the fact that it contains magnesium, phthalides, and potassium, celery may actually help those with high blood pressure.
It is high in vitamin C, which is critical for your immune system.
Celery contains bioactive flavonoids that help to fight and prevent cancer cells.
So far I like my morning ritual of having this green juice upon awakening. I am less bloated and I also feel more clear headed. So why not give it a try? It does take some work in the morning though :)
