One vegetable has been identified as literal ‘superhero’ among all nutritious and beneficial food sources.
Eat it regularly and you can drive away a whole range of health issues such as; arthritis, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and even ED.
Plus it’s one of the most powerful weight loss secrets I known (and I know many).
Celery is one of the most nutritious and hydrating vegetable you can consume.
Celery leaves are a good source of vitamin A whereas the stems are rich in vitamin B1, B2, B6 and C. Apart from being a vitamin powerhouse celery is rich in the minerals calcium, iron, phosphorus and sodium. It is also a good source of amino acids, plant hormones and essential oils that give celery its characteristic smell.
The sodium content in celery is very different from the table salt most of us consume too much of. In celery, it is present in an organic form that is soluble and essential for body salt balance. Celery juice, in fact, is an excellent rehydration drink (forget the sport drinks, and try this one the next time) that replenishes the salt lost due to activity.
Below are just few of the amazing benefits of celery:
– Celery is loaded with at least 8 anti-cancer compounds that fight against different types of cancer including prostate, colon and stomach cancer.
– It lowers cholesterol by as much as 7 points even when just 2 small stalks of celery are consumed every day.
– Celery is a natural laxative that improves digestion and relieves constipation. It also relaxes nerves stressed out by artificial laxatives.
– The sodium and potassium minerals present in celery helps regulate body fluid.
– Celery is a great food source for reducing inflammation caused by different ailments like arthritis, sinusitis, gout, asthma and bronchitis.
– Drinking a glass of celery juice every day for one week results a serious drop in blood pressure.
– The chemical compounds in celery have a soothing effect on the nerves and helps induce sleep.
– Celery juice helps eliminate toxins from the body and dissolves urinary and gall bladder stones.
This vegetable has even been shown to have the power to increase sexuality without causing side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
And since it’s a negative calorie food (you burn more digesting it than you get calories from eating it) – the more celery you eat, the slimmer you’ll get.
The next time you visit the greengrocer, don’t forget to stock up on celery, and include it in your diet every day for amazing benefits and good health.

When I do my juicing, I do 50/50 celery and carrot juice. Then I add a spoon of olive oil into the mix to help absorb the nutrition.

A few months ago, I started replacing inbetween snack with chewing on celery. You wouldn’t believe how effective it has been for weight loss. And I never feel hungry.

I have been having 2-3 sticks of celery in my green juice and 1 stick along with my salad for around 6 months.Didn’t see any decrease in my BP or anti inflammatory conditions.
It is more than true,celervis a powerful vegetable.
I like celery but I would not want to drink the juice everyday. I’m very slim and I don’t want to lose another pound! Everyone is not trying to lose weight. Some of us are trying to gain it.
Get organic celery if at all possible. It is one that has high pesticide use otherwise.
i am grateful to God for using you to bring about all this health benefits to humanity may the lord guide you more.
NOT IMPRESSED! This article is possibly the worst you have published.
When I see “Celery is loaded with nearly 8 anti-cancer compounds…” I know I’m being lied to. Nearly 8??? Oh, you really mean 7, or maybe even less. This article really lowers your credibility so much. I used to respect your information. Now, I question it all.
Further, the article is not unbiased. It makes NO MENTION of the downside of eating celery or drinking celery juice. Celery is recognised as one of the MOST POWERFUL FLUORIDE ACCUMULATING VEGETABLES there is. As you must know, Fluoride is a potent poison. The whole “Fluoride in Drinking Water” argument is based in LIES. Fluoride must be applied directly to teeth and even then, the benefits are questionable. Adding it to drinking water is simply a con. And even the US Regulators are starting to recognise this with a slight reduction in the permissible limit, to under 1ppm. However, celery grown with fluoridated water may have Fluoride levels of more than 5 times the OLD permissible limit – i.e. OVER 5ppm of Fluoride.
Good Luck with your health, drinking Highly Fluoridated Celery Juice!
Really a great vegetable for health
This all sounds great and I'm going to try to eat more celery.
However, do you have any sources and/or research data to back up any ot these claims? Especially for those who have high blood pressure, diabetes, etc., this is important.
i eat loads of celery every day don’t make my blood pressure any lower
But it causes kidney stones, as I have heard of. Is it true?
Chop it. That's where the fiber is.
Try celery with peanut butter; kids love it.
