Chances are you’ve seen your favourite bloggers, influencer and friends post about their daily celery juice diet. Not gonna lie when I first saw this I was a bit skeptical. Celery juice, really?
But now that it has taken over my instagram feed I thought I’d look into it a little more.
This celery craze started with medical medium Anthony William who claims that since age 4 he was gifted with the ability to “read” people’s conditions and guide them to recovery. His success rate has gotten him worldwide recognition and he has been praised by celebrities, billionaires and athletes. Anthony has been preaching this health hack for 20 years now. According to William, 16 ounces of celery juice a day can change your life. He recommends drinking it right in the morning within 30 minutes of waking up, on an empty stomach. No pulp, completely juiced, no ice and nothing else added to it.
“I’ve used it [celery juice] for so many problems. It helps digestion problems, constipation, gas, bloating, acid reflux, acne, UTIs, sinus problems, Lyme disease, even ADHD…. It’s miracle tonic that is changing the shape in alternative medicine like never before,” [taken from a phone interview with mindbodygreen.com (guys if you’re not familiar with this website go check it out now, it’s my wellness newspaper)]
While there are no scientific studies done to prove these health benefits behind celery juice, celery is known to contain a high level of Vitamin K, potassium and flavonoids which can maintain an electrolyte balance, help lower blood pressure and inflammation and work as an antioxidant. This might be why people are feeling this burst of energy and decrease in bloating, due to the hydration factor.
I mean, I don’t know about you but I definitely agree it doesn’t take a scientific study to prove the benefits of certain vegetables and fruits. While these are pretty big claims and I am still a bit skeptical I’d rather take a chance and know that at the very least I’ll be hydrated right?
What to Expect
Hydration (which might be linked to the skin glow)
Decrease in bloating
The benefits do appear to be quite nice. I wouldn’t be the person to go out and spend $6 on a celery juice at the store but I would recommend buying a juicer (I got mine for $80 on sale at Canadian Tire!) since then all you need is celery and it happens to be a very cheap veggie 🙂
I’d love to hear your experience, drop your comments!
