celery juice benefits I recently started to replace one snack per day with veggie juice. (you can read why here) I’ll admit, some of the juices are horrid. Ginger Beet, Garlic Mustard Greens? Yuck! Then I found “essential greens with lime” by Evolution Fresh at Whole Foods. I don’t know how much it costs. I’m scared to look. What I do know is the #1 ingredient is celery. In a world of superfoods like kale, wheatgrass, flax, chia, and spirulina; celery seems so ordinary. I’m here to tell you that celery is another but ordinary.

Why Celery Juice is Awesome

Celery is a low-cal food that is packed with water. The fibers within celery combined with the water content make celery a natural laxative that might help relieve constipation. Celery juice can also help your body get rid of excess fluid.

Celery is an excellent source of vitamin K. This is an important vitamin to help your body heal wounds and bruises. It also acts as a glue to help stick calcium to your bones.

Celery contains 3nB. 3nB was studied by researchers at the University of Chicago Medical Center. They found that celery was effective in lowering blood pressure. According to Dr. Murray a natural health doctor,

3nB is unique to celery and is responsible for the vegetable’s characteristic flavor and odor. It was discovered as the active component of celery by researchers who were seeking to explain some of the vegetable’s medicinal effects. 3nB first drew significant scientific attention when researchers at the University of Chicago Medical Center identified it as the component responsible for celery’s blood pressure–lowering effect.

The research was prompted by one of the researcher’s fathers who, after eating a quarter-pound of celery every day for a week, observed his blood pressure dropped from 158 over 96 to a normal reading of 118 over 82. Subsequent animal studies found that a very small amount of 3nB lowered blood pressure by 12 to 14 percent, and also reduced cholesterol by about 7 percent.

Many consider celery to be an aphrodisiac. Celery is said to stimulate the release of sexual hormones. Some say that just eating celery can give you a magnatic draw. I don’t know if this is true or not but it’s kind of funny. It makes me want to drink more celery juice.

Some studies also show celery to be effective in alleviating menstrual discomfort by reducing pain and possibly regulating cycles.

The Secret to Making Celery Juice Count

There is a secret to getting the most out of celery juice. The secret lies in making Vitamin K count. Vitamin K is a fat soluble vitamin so you have to drink celery juice with a little fat. We suggest a small palm full of almonds or almond butter. The fat in the almonds will help your body properly absorb the vitamin K and boost the benefits. Almonds also contain calcium and the vitamin K in celery juice will put that calcium into action by sticking it to your bones.

If you want to make your own juice try replicating the Evolution recipe of combining celery, cucumber, spinach, romaine lettuce, kale, lime, parsley, wheat grass, and clover sprouts. It’s delicious. I promise!
