The Benefits of Celery Juice and How to Make It at Home

by Amiee Aristotelous on April 23, 2020

Now, more than ever, we are all trying to stay healthy. There are so many incredible benefits of drinking celery juice, and the best part is, you can easily make it at home, and it's very cheap. When thinking of typical juices, celery may not be the first that comes to mind, however, it is quite refreshing and hydrating, and it's extremely low in sugar. Below you will find eight surprising benefits from this incredible juice.

Lowers Cholesterol

Bad cholesterol (LDL) can be lowered by a compound called 3-n-butylphthalide (BuPh) and this lipid-lower magic is found in celery. Creating a condensed juice from several stalks will give you even more BuPh to assist with your heart health.

Restores Hydrochloric Acid

Celery juice raises stomach acid which helps to break down foods, aiding in digestion and gut health. If we have lower amounts of stomach acid, our body uses other resources to help break down foods which can leave us feeling lethargic. 

It's Anti-Inflammatory

Celery juice contains polyacetylene which relieves arthritis, joint paint, and gout. In addition to soothing the body, it is said to be good for mental health as it has calming effects on the nerves. 

Helps the Liver to Detox

Studies show that fat build up in the liver is combatted with celery juice as the nutrients found in celery help the liver to develop enzymes which aid in flushing toxins from the organ. Not to mention, celery juice is 95 percent water which also aids in the cleansing. 

Improves Digestion

Celery juice is a natural (and very mild) diuretic which aids digestion by moving things through the intestines. This assists with alleviating constipation, bloating, and water retention.

Lowers Blood Pressue

Studies show that celery juice acts as a muscle relaxant by improving the flow of calcium and potassium in the cells. This process allows blood vessels to expand and contract more easily which, in turn, lowers blood pressure. 

Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Properties

Research shows that celery juice contains, both, antioxidant and antimicrobial properties which can prevent cancer and infection, while boosting immunity. Celery has a flavenoid called apigenin which as been show to kill cancer cells, and the polyacetylenes help to slow the growth of mutated cells. Celery also helps to lowers uric acid, while increasing urine production--this is helpful to prevent infection of the reproductive organs and digestive tract. 

It's Alkalizing

Studies suggest that consuming a highly alkaline diet is associated with longevity and the prevention of chronic disease. Celery juice is one of the most alkalizing beverages available!

In addition to the eight above-mentioned benefits, it's no surprise that celery juice is packed with nutrition. It's an excellent source of potassium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin K. Not to mention, it's one of the lowest sugar produce which boasts all of these essential vitamins and minerals. If you have a juicer, simply juice a few stalks for a light and refreshing beverage. If you don't have a juice, you can cut your celery stalks into one-inch pieces and use a blender. Place a nut milk bag (available for purchase online or in some stores) over the blender and strain the juice from the pulp. If you don't have the desire to make your own, many mainstream grocery stores have premade bottles available. Cheers!
