What are the benefits of drinking celery juice?
Celery is a very important vegetable in the vegetable family, and also one of the most unappreciated. For a long time, many people avoided it, because it’s so dull and dreary.
Then, a few years ago, it was marketed and made a star. This could not be more obvious when you go to the supermarket and see a row of celery. But what did it do to get its new, exuberant image?
According to numerous studies, celery juice has a lot of health benefits.
Celery is high in anthocyanins, a form of polyphenol that could be helpful in preventing bacteria infections. Anthocyanins, like many of the antioxidants, come from the plant’s anthocyanin family.
Since celery is a low-calorie vegetable, one of its special features is that it has very few calories. And it’s a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants.
Protecting against cancer
Celery is high in sulforaphane, which is an antioxidant. Sulforaphane has been linked with cancer prevention, so one of the benefits of drinking celery juice is to protect your body from developing cancer.

Studies have suggested that celery juice could lower cholesterol, because sulforaphane has an effect on LDL (bad cholesterol), HDL (good cholesterol), and total cholesterol.
Studies have also found that taking celery juice could lower LDL cholesterol.
Eating the skin
If you don’t eat the skin, then you could actually be getting more nutrients from the celery than you would by consuming the flesh.
If you look at the old, dried celery, you’ll find a lot of minerals. These could be the reason why celery is high in vitamins.
A key lesson
You know what they say: knowledge is power. Now that you know what celery can do for you, you can drink it, eat it, and even turn it into some of your favourite food (like pancakes and soups).
Cheers, and enjoy.
