Celery Juice Recipe the top 10 benefits of drinking 16 ounces of celery juice first thing in the  morning to restore and activate the gut, aid the liver and heal the body! Celery Juice Recipe and Benefits! The top TEN benefits of drinking 16 ounces of celery juice every morning to activate the gut, release toxins and heal the body! #celeryjuice #celery #juice #detox #cleanse #juicing #celeryrecipes Imagination is the highest form of research. ~Albert Einstein

While on our annual road trip to California, I discovered something really strange. All the grocery stores were totally OUT of organic celery! What is going on here I thought?!  Where is all the celery going? There is no celery, because everyone is guzzling it,  a friend later informed me. What? Why?

And then, how the universe likes to work, I began noticing that everyone was posting and sharing celery juice on social media. Health and wellness podcasts kept talking about it, singing its praises.  Celery Juice just kept popping up on my radar, over and over, until well, of course I had to try it myself to see what all the hubbub was about.

So I’m on week two of drinking 16 ounces ( 2 cups) of organic celery juice first thing in the morning and just wanted to share my experience in case you are curious about it too.  Like all things on the blog- I’m not here to tell you what to eat or drink.  You know your bodies and what you need. I just like to share ideas and options in case something piques your interest.

10 benefits of celery juice

This is what is being said out there on the web. I have no idea if these are scientifically proven, but there seems to be a lot of research and consensus about the following benefits. Please do your own research and see for yourself. (And I do advise trying it for yourself and listening to your body as part of your research. Our bodies know.)

  1. Celery Juice heals and activates the gut by restoring hydrochloric acid which helps us digest things faster and more efficiently. Celery juice helps raise stomach acid, which is necessary to help break down food, especially protein. If stomach acid is low, the body has to use more resources to digest that food, often leaving us feeling tired and lethargic. Celery juice has the ability to significantly replenish depleted levels of gastric mucus that is needed in the stomach lining to heal and prevent ulcers and acid reflux.
  2. Celery Juice lowers cholesterol. Celery contains a compound called  3-n-butylphthalide (BuPh) that has been reported to have lipid-lowering action, reducing the bad cholesterol (LDL) in our bloodstream.
  3. Celery Juice is a natural anti-inflammatory. It contains Polyacetylene which reduces chronic joint pain, gout and  rheumatoid arthritis. Not only does it sooth the body, it is believed to sooth the nerves, with calming and relaxing properties.
  4. Celery Juice lowers blood pressure. Research shows that celery helps lower high blood pressure by acting as a smooth muscle relaxant, improving the flow of calcium and potassium in cells, allowing blood vessels to expand and contract with greater ease.
  5. Celery juice aids the Liver. Studies show that celery helps reduce fat build up in the liver. The nutrients in celery protect the liver, and actually help the liver produce enzymes that help flush fat and toxins out.
  6. Celery juice improves digestion by increasing circulation in the intestines, getting things going and moving. It’s good for constipation, bloating, puffiness and water retention, acting as a gentle, mild, natural laxative and diuretic.
  7. Celery Juice fights infection. Research shows that compounds found in celery contain powerful antimicrobial properties that fight infections and naturally boost immunity. Celery juice reduces uric acid and stimulates urine production, especially useful in  fighting bacterial infections within the digestive tract and reproductive organs, helping prevent UTIs, bladder and kidney disorders.
  8. Celery Juice contains powerful anti-oxidants and cancer fighting compounds. Celery contains a flavonoid called apigenin, which has been shown to kill cancer cells. The polyacetylenes in celery interestingly contain chemo-protective compounds that help to reduce toxicity while boosting immunity, and help slow the growth of mutated cells.
  9. Celery juice is alkalizing. Actually celery is one of the most alkaline foods you can eat! Research suggests that an alkaline diet lengthens life and prevents chronic diseases.
  10. Celery juice is highly nutritious. Celery is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin K and vitamin C.  A cocktail for the skin. The luteolin in celery protects skin from the inside and prevents UV-induced damage. Some swear by celery’s skin healing properties, saying that it helped clear up skin conditions like psoriasis and acne.

According to Anthony Williams, in his book Liver Rescue , “Celery Juice is one of the most powerful and healing juices we can drink. Just 16 ounces of fresh celery juice every morning on an empty stomach can transform your health and digestion in as little as one week.”

He suggests drinking it straight and not to add anything to it for the maximum benefit.

If possible use organic celery. One small bunch makes about 16 ounces. He suggests making it fresh every morning.

I personally make enough for two days and store the extra in the fridge, letting it come to room temperature before drinking.

when should you drink celery juice?

  • Drink it first think in the morning on an empty stomach for optimal results. Wait 20-30 minutes before drinking anything else.

how much celery juice should you drink?

  • Drink 16 ounces ( about two cups). If you feel you can’t handle two cups in the beginning,  start with 1 cup and gradually increase.

does the celery have to be organic?

  • It is preferable, but not mandatory. If using non organic celery, make sure to wash all the stock very well, to help rinse any lingering pesticides. Celery is on the list of veggies that are heavily treated with pesticides.

celery juice’s effect on me personally:

  • My digestion has improved significantly- I feel like my stomach digests things quicker and more efficiently, I feel less bloated, my stomach flatter.
  • My skin feels more hydrated and looks healthier.
  • Im having less salt cravings and less sugar cravings.
  • I feel good after I drink it- it feels nourishing, I feel healthy. I like how I feel- which makes me want to keep drinking it. I also enjoy the taste of it.
  • I feel like have more energy.
  • My joints feel less stiff and achy.

Granted it has only been 7-8 days and I will update this once I get through the full two weeks.

Bottom line is this: If it’s calling you- try it. See how you feel. You’ll never know unless you try it and experience it for yourself. If it doesn’t interest you, it may not be for you or that you just don’t need it. We intuitively know what we need to feel our best!~

notes

If you can’t get organic celery- make sure to wash non-organic celery stocks really well.

Yes, of course you can add other things to celery  juice- ginger, lemon, parsley, cilantro- but it is suggested that it works best taken alone. You decide.

Drink it fresh first thing in the morning and wait 30 minutes before drinking anything else.
