I frequently recommend starting your day with a glass of celery juice. Why? Well the list of benefits is outstanding!
It has an abundance of anti-oxidents, cancer-fighting compounds and contains a flavonoid called apigenin, which has been shown to fight cancer cells.
The polyacetylenes in celery contain chemo-protective compounds that help to reduce toxicity while boosting immunity and help slowing the growth of mutated cells.
It heals and activates the gut by restoring hydrochloric acid which helps us digest things faster and more efficiently. It helps raise stomach acid, which is necessary to help break down food, especially protein. If our stomach acid is low, the body has to use more resources to digest that food, often leaving us feeling tired and lethargic. Celery juice has the ability to significantly replenish depleted levels of gastric mucus that is needed in the stomach lining to heal and prevent ulcers and acid reflux.
It lowers cholesterol by reducing the bad cholesterol (LDL) in our bloodstream.
It’s a natural anti-inflammatory containing Polyacetylene which reduces chronic joint pain, gout, and rheumatoid arthritis. Not only does it soothe the body, but it is also believed to soothe the nerves, with calming and relaxing properties.
Lowers blood pressure by acting as a smooth muscle relaxant, improving the flow of calcium and potassium in cells, allowing blood vessels to expand and contract with greater ease.
Aids the Liver because it helps reduce fat build-up in the liver. The nutrients in celery protect the liver, and actually, help the liver produce enzymes that help flush fat and toxins out.
Improves digestion by increasing circulation in the intestines, getting things going and moving. It’s good for constipation, bloating, puffiness and water retention, acting as a gentle, mild, natural laxative and diuretic.
Fights infection as it contains powerful antimicrobial properties that fight infections and naturally boost immunity. Celery juice reduces uric acid and stimulates urine production, especially useful in fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract and reproductive organs, helping prevent UTIs, bladder and kidney disorders.
It's extremely alkalizing! Being one of the most alkaline foods you can eat gives so many health benefits and chronic diseases prevention.
Highly nutritious - loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin K and vitamin C, this is a fine cocktail for the skin. The luteolin in celery protects skin from the inside and prevents UV-induced damage, helping skin conditions like psoriasis and acne when taken regularly!
