Just 100% Organic Celery Juice…
If you have followed the ‘Medical Medium’ you would have heard about the millions of people that experience amazing health benefits from plain celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. The reported benefits include clearer skin, brighter eyes, stronger bodies, and renewed vitality. But who was first to use celery medicinally and what is it about celery juice that makes it potentially so good for our overall health?
Celery has been grown and used by humans for over 3,000 years after first being grown around the Mediterranean Sea where it was used by Greeks and Romans as medicine. Celery was also used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine to treat colds, flu, water retention, poor digestion, different types of arthritis, and certain diseases of the liver and spleen. Celery wasn’t even actually produced as a food crop until the 1600’s. Celery, like parsley is in the Apiaceae family and is best known for its long fibrous stalk that tapers into leaves, but what you cannot see is just how amazing this herb really is!
Celery has endless benefits and nutritional value as it is packed with Vitamins A, B2, B6, C, K, while also being an excellent source of potassium, manganese, folate, protein, fibre, beta carotene, flavonoids, and antioxidants. It is low in sodium, low on the glycemic index and low in calories.
Benefits of consuming celery as recorded throughout the years includes reducing inflammation, aiding in healthy digestion, and supporting gut health, all while hydrating and alkalizing the body. Celery is also considered helpful managing high cholesterol and high blood pressure alongside cardiovascular health improvements and fertility support.
The anti-inflammatory effects are achieved through the transfer of phytonutrients and antioxidants throughout the body with peak benefits from the digestive tract, blood vessels and organs. The digestive tract is also supported by the fibre content and a compound known as apiuman, which is a pectin-based polysaccharide. Animal studies have shown that apiuman resulted in decreased stomach ulcers, while improving the lining of the stomach and modulating stomach secretions. Reducing inflammation in the body can also reduce the onset of arthritis and asthma according to some studies.
Celery also helps maintain hydration as this fibrous herb is packed with water content, while the minerals within celery can have an alkalizing effect. Minerals like magnesium, iron and sodium, celery can be effective in neutralizing effect on acidic foods, again supporting healthy digestion and gut health and reducing inflammation while the restoration of hydrochloric acid prompted by consuming celery also helps with digestion.
