Celery Juice Benefits Abstract

Celery juice is good for your heart, blood pressure, eyes, hair, and nails!
This morning celery juice recipe contains ginger to help reduce inflammation, improve heart health, and boost immunity! If fighting inflammation is your main goal, alternate this juice with our anti-inflammation juice.
Drinking fresh celery juice on an empty stomach
Drinking fresh celery juice on an empty stomach is beneficial because it helps you detoxify your body and provides you with essential nutrients.
You can better absorb the nutrients available within the inner fibers of celery that the juicer has extracted; thus, we can enjoy more of the celery stalks' health benefits.
These nutrients help our bodies remove free radicals and get rid of heavy metals, such as mercury and aluminum, found in our systems.
These metals accumulate over time and damage vital organs like the kidneys and liver. Celery helps to flush these metals out of the body.
Celery juice is also a great morning drink because it helps kick-start your metabolism, leading to increased fat burning throughout the day and night, helping you lose weight. It contains an amino acid called tryptophan that has been found in studies to help suppress
This recipe is closely related to our Cucumber, Carrot, and Celery juice, which brings together more nutritional value for skin health.
I started making Organic Celery Juice detox last year after a terrible accident, where I temporarily lost my ability to move two of my right-hand fingers. It was a matter of several factors.
One of the things affecting my health was the resulting chronic inflammation from the incident.
I read thoroughly about celery juice's benefits and how it could help, so I started drinking celery juice every morning.
I drank celery juice consistently for one month. Every morning, on an empty stomach.
I was amazed to see how quickly I got better, not only with inflammation but also helped me lose the extra pounds that I had gained after being convalescent in bed for three months and experiencing improved digestion.
I started seeing the benefits very early! It is suggested to stay on track for a couple of weeks, ideally 21 days, but I started noticing effects from day 5th.
If you are fighting against chronic illnesses, you should know about the benefits of drinking celery juice every day. Some call it a miracle juice... I wouldn't call any drink a miracle drink, but it certainly helped me to get back to my life faster.
- Organic celery
- Fresh ginger
- Green apple

How to make celery juice?
It is effortless to make Detox Morning Celery Juice. The easiest method is to put the celery in a Juicer to extract the juice in seconds.
If you don't have a Juicer, the second method is to place the celery in a blender and blend until smooth. Then, strain through a strainer, cheesecloth, or nut-milk bag and serve. (see below this section for the step-by-step guide).
Not yet into juicing? I highly recommend getting a Cold-Pressed Juicer. Great investment. If you are unsure, give it a try with a blender, a more typical kitchen artifact, and see how you like it.
What is the ideal amount of celery juice to receive the healing benefits?
The ideal quantity of celery juice for getting all its healing benefits is sixteen ounces a day. However, you may choose to increase your intake up to twenty-four to thirty-two ounces a day, if suffering from chronic illness or symptoms.
Wash and chop your ingredients
You only need to chop the celery and apple coarsely, so they fit the juicer.
Celery leaves are edible and nutritious but they have a bitter taste. I sometimes use them, but I recommend experimenting first with celery stalks, so you get acquainted with the flavor, and start including leaves if you wish.
Otherwise, you can eat celery leaves in salads or use them for compost.
Turn your juicer on and run all coarsely chopped ingredients through, using the tamper. We recommend mixing the different ingredients, so they all pass smoothly. If you use large chunks of apple, the outer skin may get stuck, so we use quarters.
Sometimes I add some water while the machine is still working, to push out stubborn remnants that may have gotten stuck.
You can optionally add fresh lemon juice and drink immediately.
How to make celery juice without a juicer?
Celery juicing is also easy if you are using a blender.
Just as I explained before, roughly chop your four celery stalks, green apple, and ginger.
Add all the ingredients into a blender.
Add one cup of water to a high-speed blender and mix for 30 seconds.
Pass the resulting mixture through a fine-mesh sieve, colander, cheesecloth, or nut milk bag, to strain out the pulp. Optionally add lemon juice.
Note: if you prefer to keep the juice's fiber, you can skip the straining, and add more water, to make it thinner.
Yes, you can store celery juice in the fridge; make sure you put a lid on it. It is always better to make it fresh, as specific vitamins like Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, are "volatile"... basically, they lose strength with time.
Still, this effect can be counteracted by closing it storing the Juice on an air-tight container. Fresh Juice will always win over 1-day or 2-days Juice, but fridge-stored Juice will always win vs. not juicing.
From what I have researched, we are talking about a 25% daily decrease on properties...not bad at all, but it is worth considering.

Best way to drink celery juice
The best way to drink this magnificent juice is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, by itself.
I am proposing to add a green apple and ginger to this recipe because many people find it too bitter and fall off track before experimenting with this juice's great benefits.
My twist to make it delicious
I add ginger and an apple to our juice because ginger adds an immune system booster property we all need these days. I also like replacing apples with fresh pineapple for a change!
Pineapples also have fantastic diuretic and anti-inflammatory benefits, making them a great match.
I add the green apple for its antioxidants properties and sweetness, enhancing the flavor and making it delicious, which I cannot say about this morning's green juice by itself.
Of course, you can add as many fruits and vegetables to your morning juice, but keeping it simple saves time and allows your body to absorb the nutrients much better.
It happened to me. So adding an apple and ginger during the first weeks will help you get used to the flavor of celery because it tastes delicious.
Then little by little, you can increase the ratio of celery vs. apple and ginger and drink it by itself.
It doesn't mean that it won't work; it is just that the celery juice's most significant benefits are realized when consumed on its own.
Wait for 15 to 30 minutes before consuming anything else.
Celery Juice is not a breakfast, is a tonic. You still need to have breakfast afterward.
I drink my morning celery juice pre-workout and eat a protein breakfast post-workout. Then, I eat something like a Tofu Scramble or Homemade Granola to replenish my body with the minerals lost from sweating.
Also, I prefer exercising with as little as possible in my stomach for two reasons:
- Avoid any pain in the right side of the belly.
- Feeling lighter
- I can eat a full protein-packed breakfast, which my body will absorb better.
I often drink beet juice after working out for its anti-inflammatory, stamina, and muscle power improving benefits.
Drinking Celery juice in the morning is great because it has anti-inflammatory properties.
In addition, the ingredients in this juice help improve skin health, improve the digestive tract's function, and help relax nerves, which are sometimes damaged due to unhealthy lifestyle and food choices.

More celery benefits
In the morning (jugo verde as it is called in Latin America), this green juice can also strengthen bones and have anti-insomnia properties.
But why celery juice and not just eat it with hummus or cooked?
Celery is high in fiber, which is excellent for the digestive tract. Still, it makes it harder for the body to extract the total value of this super vegetable.
That is why it is good to give our body a little help by doing some pre-work, so it spends less time breaking the fiber and more time assimilating the nutrients.
…and why first thing in the morning?
The digestive tract is clean; thus, the intestine can absorb everything much better.
Celery juice is a powerful and healthy drink that offers many health benefits. It’s easy to make and can be consumed in minutes.
If you don’t have a juicer, you can still enjoy the benefits of celery juice by blending it with other fruits or vegetables. Start incorporating celery juice into your daily routine and experience all the amazing benefits for yourself.
Add celery juice to your diet and let us know your experience.
