Fad or Fact? Benefits of Drinking Organic Celery Juice

Fad or Fact? Benefits of Drinking Organic Celery Juice

Why is drinking celery juice first thing in the morning so popular? 

From Gwyneth Paltrow to health-conscious millennials on TikTok, drinking celery juice has become a popular health trend and many people are swearing by its health benefits.

This celery juicing movement was first popularised by Anthony Williams, also known as the 'Medical Medium'. In his book Liver Rescue, he made bold claims that celery juice is a powerful healing agent for various health issues, including digestive problems, skin conditions, and autoimmune disorders. 

Despite the endorsement of celery juice by celebrities and influencers on social media, it is important to consume celery in moderation and conduct your health practitioner before relying solely on it as a medical treatment.  

In this blog post, we will take a closer look at the benefits of adding this green juice to your morning routine as part of a varied and balanced diet.

Organic Celery for Juicing

Did you know that choosing organic is essential to gain the most out of your celery juice? Conventionally grown celery used to top the Environmental Working Group's "Dirty Dozen" list, but has recently slipped off the list. However, it still recommended to choose organic to ensure you are getting the nutrition and positive effects from the celery that is free from harmful chemicals and pesticides.

Here are the top three benefits to incorporating celery juice into your daily routine:

Improved Digestion

A healthy gut is the foundation of your overall well-being. Celery juice contains 12 unique antioxidants and polysaccharides which can improve your digestion. These natural chemical compounds found in celery can help heal the digestive tract and reduce inflammation in the gut, easing symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, and other digestive disorders.

Reduced Inflammation

Did you know celery juice consists of powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce inflammation throughout the body? Inflammation is the most common root cause of chronic health problems, such as heart disease, cancer, and autoimmune disorders. Drinking celery juice can help your body reduce inflammation and lower your risk of developing these diseases.

Higher Energy Levels

Celery juice is also a great source of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin K, C and A, potassium, magnesium, and folate. In addition to absorbing these micronutrients, celery juice's low glycemic levels can help boost your energy levels through the day. 

How to Make Organic Celery Juice

If you're interested in adding organic celery juice to your morning routine, it's easy to make at home. Wash your organic celery thoroughly with clean water. Simply chop a bunch of organic celery and run it through a juicer.

To get the most benefits from celery juice, you can drink the juice immediately or store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
