Was it the Medical Medium that put celery juice on the map? Or maybe it was Gwyneth Paltrow who made drinking celery juice an essential part of your morning routine. However it started, this is one trend that won’t be going away anytime soon.
But before you invest in a pricey juicer, let’s explore the benefits of celery and why adding it in powder-form to your water is even better for you than just drinking the juice!
5 Benefits of celery juice
1. Celery contains vitamins and minerals
Celery is rich in vitamins A, K, and C, it boasts potassium and folate (which is important for healthy cell growth and function), AND it has a low glycemic index meaning it won’t increase your blood sugar levels. It’s also high in minerals like magnesium, iron, and sodium, which can help balance stomach acid and restore digestive health.
2. Celery is rich in antioxidants
Did you know that starting your day by sipping on celery can help you fight back against free radicals? Thanks to the vitamins listed above—especially vitamin C—celery has the power to protect cells, blood vessels, and organs.
3. Celery supports gut health
The term “stomach acid” may sound unappealing but it’s essential for gut health. Celery has properties that help restore hydrochloric acid in the gut, which breaks down food so your body can digest it faster and more efficiently.
4. Celery is anti-inflammatory
Celery is a great source of phytonutrients, which can reduce inflammation in the digestive tract. It helps lower oxidative stress and can have a calming effect on the stomach.
5. Celery is alkalizing
Celery helps neutralize too much additional stomach acid and helps to balance pH levels in the body. A more balanced body means improved overall health. That’s worth its weight in celery juice if you ask us.
How to make celery juice your daily ritual (without a juicer!)
Sure, you could buy an expensive juicer and spend hours prepping, juicing, and bottling your own celery juice...and then spend more time cleaning your juicer (cringe!). Or you could make an instant celery drink by mixing 2 teaspoons of the Gut Feeling Mix into water. Not only is it a much easier way to support your gut health, but it boasts more health benefits than your average celery juice, too!
Thanks to its powerful superfood ingredients (including Jerusalem artichoke, lemon balm, and of course...celery), this prebiotic mix supports digestive health with dietary fibre and digestive enzymes. Make it your morning ritual to encourage the growth of healthy bacteria, balance your gut microbiome, and reduce constipation and bloating.
