Let’s start off by shining light on all the potent health benefits of celery. This humble looking stick masks its strengths behind its simple, deceptive appearance. Here’s uncovering some of them for you: better digestion, liver detoxification, nervous system support, anti-inflammatory properties, thyroid cleansing and a healthy heart are just some of the ways it heals.
Celery acts as the greatest tool for recovering one’s health and is most beneficial when consumed solo. While vegetables like spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro and fruits like apples and oranges are beneficial when added to the celery juice, it’s best to consume the juice alone and on an empty stomach.
Fun fact, celery acts as the miracle ingredient that cuts down calorie unlike anything. You will be burning more calories in digesting it than what celery itself contains. The result? Flushed out toxins, recovered health and weight loss.
