Is Celery Juice Really Worth Drinking?

Have you ever been to the grocery store recently and find that celery is sold out?


Wait, WHAT?!


How can celery be sold out...it’s crazy, right?


Well, not so much.


Let us explain…


The Celery Juice Craze

Does the phrase, The Global Celery Movement sound familiar?


There currently is a global movement happening and everyone is hopping on the celery juice train because it’s said that it is the easiest and most natural way to restore your digestive tract. You simply juice some celery every single morning, drink it first thing in the morning, and that’s it- voila your gut health is restored!


Celery juice has also been touted to help with weight loss, reduce inflammation, fight infections, cleanse the liver, lower cholesterol, blood sugar and make skin glow. 


Is it too good to be true though?


Here’s the thing, we’re not knocking down the benefits of celery- we fully understand and support that celery has amazing benefits in just one vegetable and it can help your gut health. But, is it really worth going through the trouble of juicing one vegetable every morning that is made up of 95% water?


Let’s take a look...


Some of celery’s key benefits are


  • Celery has the perfect balance of potassium and sodium which helps to flush out excess fluids from your system, which in return reduces bloating. Plus the incredible amount of potassium and electrolytes basically makes celery nature’s Gatorade!
  • Provides vitamin K which helps your body assimilate calcium and accelerate healing with bruising and other injuries.
  • Provides a good source of fiber, when eaten in its whole form.
  • Low in calories and sugar, making it a popular choice for a quick and healthy snack.

 

Tip: Please make sure to buy organic if you juice your celery. Celery is one of the dirtiest and most pesticide filled veggies on earth if bought non-organic. So remember to super wash your celery!


The celery plant and its seeds also contain a few fantastic, healing phytonutrients. These plant-based nutrients have potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Notably, celery contains two beneficial antioxidants. Scientists call these two compounds apigenin and luteolinResearch shows that apigenin and luteolin reduce inflammation and may help treat a range of inflammatory diseases.


However, celery is just one vegetable out of the many that nature has to offer.  In fact, despite the many benefits that celery touts in its long stalks,vitamin and mineral content can be somewhat limited.


In fact, one cup of celery only contains about 3-4% RDA of the full range of vitamins and minerals you would expect in a vegetable. If you compare celery side by side with kale, you would see that kale provides a significantly higher amount of vitamins such as  A, C, K, B. See image below for more details on how significantly higher kale is in vitamins and minerals.

Although celery is widely popular at the moment, do you think it’s worth juicing every morning or everyday just to get a limited amount of vitamins?


Here’s a quick tip, why not use your celery juice as a base liquid for an even more nutritious green juice? You know- so you can have all the benefits of celery while adding in more vitamins and minerals from other green superfoods.
