Celery-juice booster!

Drinking celery juice can be beneficial, and it’s a great way to get some good nutrients into your diet. Celery on its own has high amounts of antioxidants such as Vitamin C and flavonoids, Vitamin K, folate, potassium, calcium, magnesium, Vitamin B2, fibre – and more.

Because of its nutrient quality, the benefits of celery juice include:

*Inflammation-reducing properties: celery contains lots of antioxidants, and it can help decrease the risk of oxidative damage in the body, as well as reduce inflammation and prevent inflammatory responses

*Hydrating qualities: celery is naturally made up of lots of water, and can help boost your body’s hydration, especially if you enjoy it in juice form

*Digestive support: people have reported digestive benefits and experiencing stronger systems and less digestive upset, after drinking celery juice

*Boost cardiovascular health: because of  its antioxidant proterties and ability to help with oxidative damage, celery also has the potential to help support cardiovascular health, and prevent several cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis

*Support heart health: there are elements of celery that have shown to have a positive effect on the heart and its health, because of its ability to help with glucose levels, blood lipids and blood pressure, which can also contribute to helping with diabetes.

Along with promoting drinking celery juice, it also has become a popular recommendation to drinking celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, to properly enjoy and absorb its benefits.

Drinking it on an empty stomach will get the juice into your system, but it’s not strictly necessary to consume it that way. Juicing in general already helps break down foods into a more instantly absorbent form, and can still get into your system well, if you’ve eaten something already.

If you are someone who prefers drinking their celery juice first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach, it’s important to remember that, along with juicing, you need to be sure that you also include whole, fibrous foods in your diet, so that your digestive system continues to get the support it needs, and that your metabolism continues to function at an appropriate pace.

Weight-loss goals

You might hear that celery helps with weight loss because it’s a negative-calorie vegetable. However, there is a lot of controversy about negative-calorie foods and their legitimate benefits on your health.

Celery is a nutrient-dense vegetable with lots of water that can help support a weight-loss journey. In its raw form, it contains fibre that can help keep you satiated for longer, and possibly reduce cravings. It’s a great vegetable to include in your diet, for its nutrient and hydration quality, alone.

Focus more on including variety and colours in your diet, and listen to your body. Just drinking celery juice in the morning isn’t quite going to cut it, though including celery juice in your diet can still contribute to your journey.
