Top 5 Health Benefits of Drinking Celery Juice

You might think of celery as being just a weirdly long green stem which floats in your soup or something you can chomp on with a side of hummus. Yet there are many other uses for the stalk. Most recently, juicing celery has become a popular way to detox your body. But what are the actual benefits of consuming celery juice first thing in the morning? Read on for these Top 5 Benefits of Drinking Celery Juice!

1. Hydration: Water, water & more WATER

Celery is made up of around 95% water. This means that by drinking even a few sips you’re inherently aiding your body in its digestive tasks, transporting nutrients, circulation and much more. By drinking the juice, you’re rehydrating your body after a long night of sleep.

2. Activates Your Gut

Celery juice helps to raise the acidity of our stomachs, an important component for efficient digestion. If the hydrochloric acid in our stomach is running low, it takes more energy to digest solid food which can leave your body feeling lethargic. Taken in the morning, it invigorates and ‘resets’ your body and can help prevent this.

3. Anti-Inflammatory

This juice acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. Inflammation is caused when the body tries to fight against things which try to harm it like bacteria, infections or toxins. Anti-inflammatory foods such a celery juice help optimise our immune system and strengthen us naturally from within.

4. Packed with Vitamins

Celery juice is packed full of nutritious vitamins which our body craves throughout the day, but especially in the morning. It contains essential minerals such as vitamin K, potassium and vitamin C. Put down your supplements and get your vitamins from the source.

5. Helps Minimize Skin Blemishes & Imperfections

Last but not least, celery juice contains luteolin. This mineral aids your skin through its many healing properties. One of the most notable effects is its ability to support protection from UV damage. There are many claims that celery juice also helps to pacify acne and other skin eruptions or inflammation.

So now you know the benefits of drinking celery juice first thing in the morning. Next time you find yourself reaching for coffee, reconsider investing in your immunity and grab that juicer instead. Celery juicing has become a trend now in many countries throughout the world. Your journey to a stimulating celery cleanse and more is about to begin, happy juicing!
