Freshly pressed celery juice seems to be on everyone’s radar thanks to social media influencers and health influencers on YouTube. People are waking up in the morning and immediately putting celery in a juicer. They think drinking 16 ounces of this magic elixir will provide digestive, skin, and mood benefits. Is it true? Is there something better you could be doing for your body instead? Here are some things you should know about the celery juice craze.
Let’s start by discussing the makeup of celery. It is a well-known vegetable, but usually, we find it as a side for buffalo wings or carrying peanut butter and raisins to make them appealing to kids. Celery isn’t everyone’s favorite veggie, but it really does have the potential to provide some proper nutrients. Here are a few of the things you can get from adding celery to your diet.

Everything gets called a superfood nowadays if it has health benefits. However, the fact is that many of the benefits that come from celery, especially the variety of antioxidants, are found in many different foods. So while celery certainly isn’t bad for you, it’s not the only vegetable that can provide these benefits, and many fruits are also just as healthy.
The other problem with the celery juice craze is that the people who swear by it have nothing to go by except their own results. Most of the studies that exist regarding the benefits of celery are only using celery extract and not the juice. There is almost no scientific evidence to back up claims that celery juice is going to be some sort of miracle drink for you.
Another factor is that celery juice leaves out what may be the most significant benefit of celery – the fiber. It is something that is severely lacking in the western diet, and it is something that you really need for proper digestive health. So are there any benefits to juicing?
There may actually still be some benefits to celery juice. For example, 16 ounces of juice is an entire head of celery. There’s no way you are going to eat much in one sitting. So while more than half of the antioxidants get lost in the juicing process, you may end up consuming way more than double the amount of celery. Also, there is some evidence that juicing makes the nutrients in fruits and veggies more bioavailable. That means you absorb more of the nutrients and get more of the benefits. It’s also way better for you than drinking 16 ounces of soda or energy drink.
Hopefully, our article gave you some of the information that you need to make a good decision. It’s not like celery juice is bad for you. Just don’t expect it to be a cure-all and have realistic expectations. Don’t forget too that you lose some of the health benefits in the juicing process – particularly that vital fiber. Therefore, you may want an additional supplement to help your digestive tract.
