And if you are planning to include celery juice in your morning diet plan, here’s why you should be sipping more of it.
Good For Gut:
Celery is known as a gut healing food, thanks to its ability to release stomach acid in the right amounts and breakdown the food. The stem of celery is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins that help in digestion, absorption and restore stomach health. Regular intake of the magical stem decoction keeps gut problems at bay and prevents indigestion and other digestive disorders.
Celery is highly beneficial for those suffering from thyroid-related issues, especially hypothyroidism. Drinking celery juice helps in the production of thyroid hormone and flushes the toxins out.
Improves Heart Health:
Celery is loaded with luteolin – a flavonoid and an antioxidant that helps in lessening the inflammation. A glass of celery juice on empty stomach strengthens the heart muscles, prevents plaque build-up in the blood vessels and also averts the formation of atherosclerosis (i.e. hardening of the arteries), and hence prevents heart disease, stroke, and also reduces high blood pressure.
Celery works wonders in aiding liver function and its strong detoxifying properties remove bad bacteria, viruses, fungi and other toxins from the liver. The phytonutrients present in the stalks provide overall protection to the liver function.
Drinking celery juice purifies blood and has a calming effect on the nervous system. The plant hormones in celery reduce insomnia by regulating the nervous system. Celery juice provides your daily dose of right nutrients, electrolytes, balancing your PH and keeping the nervous system relaxed.
