If you’ve been on Instagram lately, then you’ve most likely seen one of the 40,000 posts with #CeleryJuice. However, celery juice might not be a health trend you should ignore as it can improve chronic pain, skin conditions, and digestive issues.
The celery “movement” started with Anthony William, “the Medical Medium,” who has three New York Times bestselling books on natural food cures under his belt. He recommends that you drink at least 16 ounces of celery juice every morning on an empty stomach.
You should expect to see improvements in the following symptoms:
- Adrenal Fatigue
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Although there isn’t much research on the health benefits of juicing this vegetable, the nutrients alone are enough to be convincing. Fresh celery is full of folate, manganese, calcium, vitamin K, magnesium, and more. Celery is also great for hydrating your body since it’s mostly water.
10 Benefits of Celery Juice
1. Restores Your Adrenal Glands
Your adrenal glands are responsible for producing sex hormones and cortisol. When your hormones are out of order, you could experience a host of side effects.
Fortunately, celery juice contains sodium cluster salts which work to keep your glands working properly.
2. Reduces Your Risk of Cancer
Celery has antioxidants like caffeic acid, apigenin, and saponin that fight free radicals in your body1. If they remain unchecked, free radicals are known to cause cancer.
3. Fights Diabetes
Celery juice could help combat diabetes. In one study, celery seed extract improved both glucose and insulin levels in diabetic patients2. The extract also helped them regulate their weight.
4. Combats Autoimmune Diseases
The classic sign of an autoimmune disease is inflammation, which can cause redness, heat, pain, and swelling. Pathogens are known to cause inflammation and the result is symptoms that mimic many autoimmune issues.
Celery juice contains sodium salt clusters that enter your body and break down the pathogens. This helps ease the pain and alleviate inflammation.
5. Improves Chronic Acid Reflux
If you suffer from chronic acid reflux, you have probably tried many medications to improve your symptoms. Celery juice can help combat the three common causes of chronic reflux: Low HCL acid production, a weak liver, or bad bacteria.
Celery juice strengthens your body’s production of hydrochloric acid and makes your liver stronger (produces more bile). Celery has also been shown to have antibacterial properties3. As a result, the juice kills off strep and other types of bad bacteria.
6. Fights Illness
The sodium cluster salts in celery juice work together and act as an antiseptic. Cluster salts break down viruses and bad bacteria by attacking the cell membranes.
7. Detoxifies Your Liver
Your liver works hard every day and it can use some help to stay healthy. The cluster salts in celery juice cling onto toxins found in your liver and act as a detoxing agent.
Celery juice can also lower the heat of your liver which helps it function better. A healthy liver can improve your energy level and fight hormonal imbalances.
8. Keeps Bloating to a Minimum
Do you often feel bloated? If so, you should give celery juice a try. The juice replenishes the acid in your stomach which kills bacteria like strep. Additionally, it breaks down rancid fats and rotting protein.
In addition to drinking celery juice, we recommend NATURELO’s Ultra Strength Probiotic supplement which has 11 probiotic strains with 50 billion active cultures that promote the growth of healthy gut bacteria and helps fight against bloating.
