Drinking celery juice is one of the hottest health trends for health and healing. The celery juice craze has been made popular by the Medical Medium (Anthony William) podcast and books.

Potential Health Benefits of Celery

Celery is naturally loaded with natural sodium and antioxidants. Celery and celery seeds, also known as Apium graveolens, have been traditionally used in traditional medicine for centuries to help with various conditions.

There is also a nice bit of modern scientific evidence showing the benefits of eating celery, including on high cholesterol, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, and cancer.

So, even though there isn’t a lot of specific research on drinking celery juice, the science does seem to agree that celery is a healthy food to eat. Celery is a goo source of vitamin C and vitamin K, plus antioxidants that can fight free radicals. Both celery and celery leaves have anti-inflammatory properties.

Bloating & Digestion

There are a lot of claims that drinking celery juice can help reduce bloating and help with digestion. It really depends on the individual and what your digestive system is used to. This juice can help with digestion, bloating and detoxification, but it kind of depends on what you’re used to and what state of health your gut is in when you start.

In regards to the other supposed benefits of drinking celery juice to help reverse chronic diseases including liver disease, high blood pressure, acid reflux, or heart disease, I would advise you to consult with your healthcare provider since there just isn’t enough scientific evidence to support those claims.

Juicing Tips

  • Making celery juice is actually really easy! You only need celery stalks and a juicer. Or, if you have a blender, you can also make fresh juice, but you’ll need to strain it through a nut milk bag.
  • Consider buying organic celery if you can, since celery is often sprayed with pesticides and is on the Dirty Dozen list.
  • I also like to include a fresh, peeled lime as an optional ingredient. I like how it adds brightness and some extra flavor. You can also use fresh lemon juice to help improve the taste of celery juice. I’ve been known to juice an apple with the celery, too, but that’s also optional and increases the sugar content.
  • For the Medical Medium straight celery juice recipe, just use 100% celery. Do not add anything else.

My Experience

While some people are very disciplined about drinking celery juice first thing in the morning, I do not find that appealing at all. Sometimes I will use celery juice in my smoothie recipe. But, more often, I drink it as a mid-morning snack on an empty stomach.

I have not tried drinking it consistently in the morning. I drink it mostly for the extra fiber and antioxidants, not to try and treat any condition. To be honest, I consider celery juice just as one of the many green juices that are part of a healthy diet that can contribute to overall health.

Now it’s your turn! Tell me about your experience with juicing and whether or not you’ve incorporated this practice into your daily wellness routine.
