Celery juice packs a super anti-inflammatory punch. Celery contains the organic compound polyacetylene, a powerful inhibitor of acute inflammation in bone diseases like osteoarthritis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis and respiratory disorders like bronchitis and asthma. That is also why it is so effective in restoring essential minerals and healing the body post workout. Here are just some of the peer-reviewed, scientifically-backed benefits:
- a glass of celery juice a day lowers blood pressure
- prevents calcification in kidneys and bladder (no stones)
- repairs skin, makes it glow: loaded with vitamin A, B, C, K, niacin and folate, which are essential for repairing skin damage. These vitamins also contribute to the production of collagen.
- studies show that celery may inhibit tumour growth. Celery is a particularly rich source of a compound called apigenin which has been shown in vitro to significantly inhibit cancer cell proliferation.
