After listening to Medical Medium's podcast on celery juice, I am hooked!
I started drinking 16oz of celery juice every morning for the past few weeks and have experienced amazing benefits. 

For the best results celery juice is best drunk alone, with no other produce mixed in.
Throughout the day it's great to add celery to your green juice mix. However, for the purpose of getting the full healing benefits it's great to drink alone and on an empty stomach. 


DIGESTIVE HEALTH

Most digestive issues are due to low stomach acid in the body.
The sodium and minerals in celery help to naturally raise stomach acid levels.
Drinking celery juice in the morning will raise stomach acid and set you up for good digestion for the rest of the day. 
These same mineral salts help repair your entire digestive tract and your liver. 

SKIN & HAIR

95% of celery's total weight is water. Since celery has such a high water content it is excellent for hydrating the skin cells. 
Celery is also very high in vitamin A, B, C, K, niacin and folate which are great for overall hair and skin health. The numerous vitamins and minerals in celery help to stimulate hair growth, repair & hydrate skin cells and improve hair texture. 

LOWERS BLOOD PRESSURE

Celery has a phytochemical in it called phthalides. Phthalides help relax the tissues in the artery walls to increase blood flow and lower blood pressure. 

REDUCES INFLAMMATION

Celery juice has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. This is great for people with chronic or autoimmune illnesses such as Lyme disease, celiac, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), acne, gout, bloating, cramping and acid reflux.
Celery juice starves out pathogens and viruses like Epstein-Barr (EBV) that create bad bacterias.  The powerful minerals and salts in celery help work together as an antiseptic. When these salts come into contact with pathogens and viruses they begin to break them down and eventually kill and destroy them. This is why drinking celery juice consistently over time is very beneficial for long term health. 

CALMING

Celery juice is great for our mental state as well. Many people refer to the gut as the second brain. We can hold a lot of emotions such as anxiety, fear, and nervousness in our guts. Celery juice is great for calming the nerves. If you are feeling panicked, anxious, fearful, or unsure, try celery juice for its amazing natural calming benefits. 
Having your body and mind at ease also helps benefit digestion. Your body digests best when you are at rest and relaxed. 

There are so many more amazing benefits when it comes to celery juice. Celery juice is a great tool to help your body heal and repair. I challenge you to try drinking 16oz (or more) of celery juice every morning for 30 days and experience the amazing benefits yourself! <3
