I definitely had a carb-licous week and was in need of a drink that was going to make me feel “not bloated”. I think everyone has those days where they reflect on what they shouldn’t of ate that week or how they should of gone to the gym a few more times. But no worries, I have a solution! Celery is truly a super food that naturally curbs your appetiate while also giving you tons of energy (making you feel slim in no time). Celery juice is one of the most highly nutritious and hydrating foods that we can have.It’s also a cool, refreshing drink on a blistering summer day!
Here are just some of the benefits of celery juice:
Celery juice is highly nutritious and one of the most hydrating foods we can put in our bodies. Because it is incredibly alkalizing, it equalizes the body’s PH, which is vital for peak health. . Celery leaves are high in vitamin A, whilst the stems are an excellent source of vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C and dense in potassium, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, sodium and essential amino acids.
- Celery calms the nerves and has a relaxing power upon consumption. Therefore, it helps cure insomnia.
- The high amount of sodium content replaces electrolytes in your body, thereby making this an excellent drink for athletes.(Very different to table salt. Normal table salt is composed of insoluble inorganic compounds which lead to the development of varicose veins, hardening of the arteries and other aliments. If salt, including sea salt is white, then it has been processed and all minerals and nutrients have been destroyed.)
- It suppresses the appetite, which leads to weight loss because it is low in calories, you can eat as much as you want.
- Celery contains phytochemical compounds called coumarins that help lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. It also helps prevent and fight cancer.
