Celery-Anti-inflammatory, alkalizing, electrolyte, digestive aid, detox, yes please
A powerful anti-inflammatory food, celery is another one of nature's superstars. It starves unproductive bacteria, yeast, mold, fungus, and viruses that are present in the body and flushes their toxins and debris out of the intestinal tract and liver and helps good bacteria thrive.
Consuming celery is the most powerful way to alkalize the gut. That’s in part because celery, (technically an herb, not a vegetable,) is high in bioactive sodium which aids in cleansing and repairing intestinal linings.
Celery has enzymes which raises hydrochloric acid in the stomach which aids in digestion, a quality which prevents gastrointestinal disorders.
According the the Medical Medium, celery improves kidney function, helps restore the adrenals, and can even bring ease to one’s mind and thought patterns, with its mineral salts feeding electrical impulse activity and supporting neuron function, which is key if you suffer with ADHD, brain fog, or memory loss.
Acting as an electrolyte, celery hydrates on a deep cellular level.
Juice celery for a super boost. For the full effect, drink a full 16 ounces of fresh celery juice daily—and make sure it’s on an empty stomach to raise hydrochloric acid levels most efficiently. For dramatic results, drink two 16-ounce glasses of fresh celery juice a day.
If your goal is to cleanse your body of toxic heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, lead, copper, cadmium, nickel, and arsenic, add a half cup of fresh cilantro when you’re juicing your celery.
An easy way to get more celery into your diet is to add two to four sticks of it when blending the smoothie of your choice.
