The Celery Juice Craze
It’s virtually impossible to scroll through social media these days and not see a celebrity or blogger endorsing the seemingly life-changing drink, celery juice. From Gwyneth Paltrow to Kim Kardashian, everyone seems to be singing the praises of this single-ingredient early morning beverage. So what’s the deal? “Medical Medium Celery Juice: The Most Powerful Medicine of Our Time Healing Millions Worldwide” by health guru Anthony William is where the celery juice craze began. Claiming to help repair digestive disorders, depression and anxiety, migraines, clear skin issues and rid the body of unwanted toxins, it’s no surprise that high-end juice bars are slinging this new fad drink for around $7 a pop!
The truth is, although some of William’s health claims or not entirely backed up by science, celery juice is a great addition to your daily juicing or smoothie routine. Celery contains vitamins A, K, and C, plus minerals like potassium and folate. Plus, it’s low on the glycemic index, meaning it has a slow effect on your blood sugar levels. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory, helps to lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
We recommend you try it for yourself! Start by juicing organic celery and ¼ cup of water until smooth. Add-ins like lemon juice, lime juice, fresh ginger, green apple and cucumber are all great for added vitamins and a punch of flavor.
