Celery Juice on an Empty Stomach has enormous Health Benefits

When you think of green superfoods, celery may not be the first veggie to come to mind. Kale, spinach, or even avocados are known for their health benefits, but celery juice is actually ‘having a moment". Believe it or not, drinking 18oz of celery juice on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning can lead to some serious health perks.

I recently participated in a Celery Juice Challenge for 30 days.  I noticed a positive result almost immediately.  Challenge is simple: drink celery juice first thing in the morning for at least a week and see if you notice any of the health benefits listed below. 

 

6 Benefits of Celery Juice

BETTER DIGESTION: Celery juice can help you rebuild hydrochloric acid in your gut, which is crucial for fully digesting your food and absorbing important nutrients.  For those of you who struggle with candida, SIBO, and/or leaky gut, regularly drinking celery juice each morning on an empty stomach can help kill off unwanted visitors.

LIVER DETOXIFICATION: Celery’s detoxifying properties work to remove bad bacteria, fungi, mold, viruses and other toxins from the liver; the phytonutrients found in the green stalks also can have a protective effect.

NERVOUS SYSTEM SUPPORT: Celery is a powerhouse for supporting the nervous system. It has a calming effect on the nervous system because of its detoxify properties. It also provides support through its ability to act as a blood purifier.

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: Celery contains luteolin, a potent flavonoid, that can act as an antioxidant and calm inflammation

THYROID CLEANSING: According to Medical Medium, Anthony William, the mineral salts in celery may help to fight and cleanse the body of the Epstein-Barr virus, particularly in the thyroid. Celery can also help to boost production of important thyroid hormones in those with hypothyroidism.

HEART HEALTHY: Studies have shown that celery extract consumption can help to prevent stroke, lower blood pressure, and reduce plaque in arteries.

Personally I noticed:

- Ease of Digestion (I no longer "needed" my morning coffee)

- Reduced sugar cravings

- Overall steadier energy and a clearer head.

If possible, juice your own celery and drink it within 10 minutes of juicing for optimal freshness.  And consider keeping a daily journal to mark the way you feel.
