Celery Juice Benefits: What Makes This Juice So Popular?

Celery sticks

What’s the buzz about celery juice? Is this just another trend? Is drinking celery juice all it’s cracked up to be?

The simple answer is, YES, celery juice is the cream of the crop... well, technically, the juice of the crop.

The idea of drinking a glass of celery juice each morning may sound like a passing fad, but the celery juice movement is rooted in benefit, and it’s here to stay.

The History of Celery Juice

You may have seen celery juice touted on social media by your favorite health influencer or by the celery juice wizard himself, Anthony Williams.

But the idea of celery juice actually traces back to Dr. Norman W. Walker. Dr. Walker was a well-researched doctor practicing with almost 70 years of experience in the art of juicing combined with a balanced diet of raw fruits and vegetables for optimal health and well-being.

Dr. Walker’s theory is that our bodies use a lot of time and energy to digest solid foods before the nutrients in them are available for the tissues and cells in our bodies to use - whereas the benefits of raw juice are digested in our digestive systems within a matter of minutes. [1]

Anthony William, also known as the Medical Medium, later introduced celery juice as a health elixir through his books on chronic illness and holistic healing. He gained popularity in both celebrity and mainstream wellness circles for shedding insight into the benefits of drinking celery juice for several chronic health issues.

William's influence has sparked a global movement. Many people are now embracing celery juice as a natural superfood with many health benefits and anti-inflammatory properties.

What Are The Health Benefits of Celery Juice?

You’ve heard about the hype of drinking celery juice every morning. Let’s dive into the “why” behind all of the hype.

Celery juice gets its “cure-all” reputation because it is a nutritional powerhouse filled with nutrients like calcium, magnesium, potassium, folate, natural sodium, vitamin C, vitamin A, and vitamin K, all of which are vitamins needed for optimal health and various functions of the body.

Here are some of the health benefits of drinking celery juice on an empty stomach every morning:

  • Weight Loss - Two antioxidants present in celery, Apigenin and luteolin, help you clear a major hurdle to weight loss— inflammation.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Effects - The antioxidants and flavonoids present in fresh celery juice work hard to remove free radicals from the body, promoting detox and lowering inflammation in the skin, gut, and body. Phytonutrients and phytochemicals are plant compounds present in celery and help to reduce inflammation in the body and slow down oxidative stress [2]

  • Gut Health - Do you suffer from gut issues? Bloating? Gas? Loose stools? Intense cravings? Skin breakouts? These issues are often connected to poor gut health. Calcium, magnesium, and potassium in celery juice play key roles in promoting a healthy gut. These minerals are essential for maintaining the balance of electrolytes, supporting proper muscle contractions, and supporting the digestive system.

  • Glowing Skin - According to scientific evidence, your gut microbiome and skin health are connected [3]. If your skin is prone to rashes, breakouts, or acne, it may be worth diving into. Your body’s largest organ is your skin. And a build-up of toxins combined with poor gut health can be a disaster for your skin. Celery juice is highly detoxifying and hydrating, which can work wonders for skin health.

    If you’re looking for vibrant skin, celery juice is your go-to.

  • Stronger Immunity - Vitamin C, known for its immune-boosting power, is abundant in celery juice. Additionally, vitamin A plays a vital role in supporting immune function. Celery juice is naturally antiviral, antibacterial, and antimicrobial, naturally strengthening the body's ability to fight off infections and illnesses.

  • Less Bloating - The diuretic effect of celery juice, thanks to potassium, contributes to reducing water retention and bloating. Potassium helps regulate fluid balance in the body, preventing the discomfort associated with excess water.

  • Enhanced Mental Focus - The combination of vitamin K, which is essential for brain health, and the overall hydration provided by celery juice contributes to improved cognitive function. Adequate vitamin K levels are associated with better memory and cognitive abilities.

  • Improved Energy - Celery is naturally high in essential electrolytes, such as potassium, sodium, and magnesium. These minerals play a crucial role in maintaining proper fluid balance in cells and supporting nerve impulses and muscle contractions, all of which contribute to sustained energy levels.

Making celery juice a daily ritual is treating your body on a totally holistic level. It truly does it all.

But, like anything else, consistency here is key. And let’s be honest, juicing celery every day can be time consuming and difficult to keep up with (Who wants to clean a juicer every day?) Let us handle the mess so you can reap the health benefits in a stress-free way.

Reap The Benefits of Celery Juice, Hassle-Free

How Does Celery Juice Work?

I know it sounds too good to be true... but it’s not. Now that you know the “why” behind this green magic elixir, here’s the “how” ...Because who doesn’t love a good ole science lesson from a holistic nutritionist? 😇

The most beneficial thing about celery (Apium graveolens l) is its high natural sodium content. Do not confuse this with the refined sodium in table salts, chips, or canned soups that causes terrible side effects, like high blood pressure and cholesterol, clotting, varicose veins, and other types of blood and heart disease. The natural sodium in celery juice is a completely different animal (or plant, as it were).

If you are human, your body needs sodium - the kind that’s naturally occurring in fruits and veggies. Celery stalks are one of those vegetables high in natural sodium.

Your body needs salt for various functions of the body, like digestion. Without salt, proper digestion is virtually impossible [1]. Not to mention that the cells in your body need saline water to function optimally. And if they do not get that saline water, AKA proper hydration, dehydration sets in. We all know how dangerous that can be.

Where does celery juice come in? Well, table salt and rock salt are not easily dissolvable in water. Our bodies need water-soluble sodium. Celery juice is the perfect concentrated form of water-soluble sodium, making it easy for your body to penetrate and replenish your system with electrolytes as needed.

Tips And Tricks To Maximize Results

I bet you have a ton of questions, so here are some simple tips and tricks to incorporate celery juice into your daily lifestyle:

  • Drink celery juice on an empty stomach every morning. You can follow your morning routine 15-30 minutes after drinking celery juice. Feel free to have more celery juice throughout the day if you’d like some extra benefit.

  • Celery does have a mild taste, however, it’s not a sweet drink (hence the high sodium content), so keep that in mind. I will say that The benefits are worth it. If you have an aversion to celery juice, you can try our Apple Celery juice and ease your way into plain celery juice. You can purchase apple celery through our Build-a-Box option. 

  • No, you don’t need to eat celery leaves or your body weight in celery stalks to get the benefits. Eating celery is not the same as drinking it. Our bodies need more energy to digest solid foods. That’s not to say there’s no benefit to eating celery; there is. But juicing celery and removing the fiber helps to give you the most concentrated form of those beneficial enzyme salts celery juice has to offer.

  • Consistency and discipline are key. For the best results, you should be drinking celery juice every single morning combined with healthy dietary choices. Eat plenty of raw fruits and veggies, healthy whole grains and carbohydrates, juices, and smoothies.

    Avoid problematic foods that cause inflammation, like refined sugar, seed oils, dyes, artificial flavors, and other processed junk, especially if inflammation or weight loss are a concern. These foods can cause more inflammation as well as weight gain.

  • When you're not actively engaged in a juice cleanse, incorporating celery juice is an excellent way to maintain your health and wellness goals. Picture it as filling your tank with high-quality fuel, ensuring a smooth and efficient transition in and out of cleansing while driving you on your path to your goals.

  • Always consult with a healthcare professional or dietitian to see if celery juice is right for you.

Your Daily Dose Of Wellness

Celery juice is no passing trend. So, If you’re wondering if you should jump on the celery juice train, here’s your sign.

Celery juice is a nutritional powerhouse with benefits ranging from its anti-inflammatory powers and weight loss to improved gut health and glowing skin.

As a holistic nutritionist, I emphasize the importance of consistent daily intake for optimal results.
