The Celery Juice Trend

Everyone seems to drink it these days but is it as magical as everyone is claiming?

Let's look at celery.

Celery is a very low-calorie food 100g equals 16 calories. In fact, celery is claimed to be a negative-calorie food which means that your body requires more energy to digest the food. In other words, eating celery is like a workout. You will burn more calories than you consume. Other foods that are claimed to be a negative-calorie food are grapefruit, lemon, lime, apple, lettuce, broccoli, and cabbage.

Although - there is no science to back up this statement so whether it is true or not, still remains a mystery.

But what else does celery have to offer?

Celery is a great source of Vitamin K, vitamin C and folate. Celery also has some powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Celery has a wide variety of different phytonutrients. Phytonutrients natural chemicals produced by plants for plants to stay healthy.

We humans can get some incredible health benefits by eating plants and its phytonutrients. They are not essential for life but can aid in disease prevention, enhance immunity and intercellular communication.

Eating celery has also shown that it can help to protect the digestive tract from inflammation. So people suffering from gut issues may have the benefit of introducing celery into their daily diet.

So should you drink celery juice every morning?

In order to make a celery juice, you would need a lot of celeries. More than you could eat in one sitting. Which translates to a much greater nutrient composition than just eating a few stalks of celery. So drinking celery juice every morning can certainly improve your diet.

A lot of people on the internet swear by their morning ritual with a glass of celery. Some have even claimed it has changed their life, improved their health, reduced chronic disease symptoms and lost weight. Other claims that have been said is improved digestion, more energy, glowing skin and the list goes on.

Although some people say 1 juice was enough to put them off celery juice for life.

The bottom line is, drinking celery juice will give you a boost in essential and non-essential nutrients. Is it a miracle drink? Probably not, I think most people who start on a new health trend tend to change their overall diet and lifestyle and that has a major impact on their current health.

However, you're better of trying it out for yourself!
