We couldn’t help but tackle the latest celeb craze regarding celery juice. That is drinking pure, straight celery juice. As you might’ve heard already, the Kardashian/ Jenner Klan – specifically Kylie- is preaching the virtues of drinking celery juice on a daily morning basis.. Starting fresh as they claim.

“I try and drink about 500mls in the morning and wait 30 minutes before eating,” Kylie captioned a picture of her very large freshly juiced celery drink. She goes on to explain: “Celery contains high amounts of vitamin C and K, as well as folate and potassium, and studies show that celery plays a role in fighting and preventing cancer and liver disease, [reducing] inflammation and [boosting] cardiovascular health. Calms nerves, relieves migraines, and promotes weight loss.”

 

Drinking celery juice first thing in the morning has become a popular trend among wellness enthusiasts. Consuming celery juice solo, correctly and successfully amplifies its healing potential tremendously. It can help with high blood pressure, inflammation, and gut health. Celery contains potentially beneficial bioactives and vitamins.

However, bringing celery into the spotlight recently does not mean that this potent veggie’s benefits were buried or poorly acknowledged. It’s just that it has become the latest Instagram craze and everyone is following suit. 

Not to mask celery’s strength, it is wiser to consider the gazillion benefits reaped by other fruits and veggies, this cure-all magic fixer-upper notion regarding celery should be not very exaggerated. In order to maintain a great health and wellness state, one should be aware of the wide array of other potent foods and follow a thorough and inclusive regimen instead on just relying on one source.. Quoting Natalie von Bertouch –  a renowned and accredited Practicing Dietitian- below,

 

“There is currently no scientific evidence to suggest drinking celery juice will have any of the advertised health benefits. Whilst celery juice is safe to drink and can be part of a healthy diet, it is not the superfood it is made out to be,” 

Adding: “With claims of curing autoimmune diseases, preventing cancer and alkalising your body celery juice sounds too good to be true! And unfortunately, when things sound too good to be true they often are. Celery juice is no different.”
