I recently – and reluctantly – tried celery juice. I kept hearing about it. I heard it was amazing for you. Everyone I knew, who looked and felt good, was doing it and swore by it. I figured there must be something to it and decided to give it a try. With hesitance, thinking this was just another health trend, and thinking celery juice sounds disgusting, I drank it…and made Matt drink it too. Within 30 minutes of drinking it, I realized people talk about it because it works.
About 30 minutes to an hour after drinking it Matt and I had to go to the bathroom. I know this a little TMI but I think it’s important people talk about it so you know what to expect. As the days went on of drinking it everyday (we tested it for seven days), it was a little less intense but it definitely helps flush your system.
Once I felt like something was “working”, whatever that means, I started researching more about celery juice. What does it do? Are there really benefits to it? Below is what I found.
Fights auto-immune disease
Helps restore adrenals
Critical for chronic acid reflux
Neutralizes and flushes toxins out of the liver
Kills shingles virus
Raises hydrochloric acid and helps the liver produce bile
Brings down toxic liver heat
Powerful weapon against sibo and bloating
Contains sodium cluster salts that are critical for the brain
Helps eradicate strep bacteria
There are so many health benefits that sound good to me and it doesn’t taste as bad as I expected it too. It is something I am going to test out and stick with for a little longer and see how I continue to feel.
