Celery is a fibrous, low-calorie vegetable that has a high water content. One cup of celery juice contains 33 calories and also various macronutrients and micronutrients, including antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin A, and tannin.
Celery is 95% water, making it a hydrating snack and smoothie or juice ingredient. Its hydrating ability is celery juice’s most powerful “detoxifying” property.
Health Benefits of Celery Juice
Drinking celery juice on an empty stomach has gained popularity as a detoxifying practice. Celery and its respective juice may offer some health benefits.
- Celery seed may prevent the gastrointestinal system from developing stomach ulcers
- Celery leaf extract could be an effective complementary therapy in reducing blood sugar levels.
- Celery has anti-inflammatory properties that are effective in reducing gout-related ankle swelling.
- It has pain-reducing and anti-inflammatory properties that decreases menstrual pain
Drinking celery juice, even on an empty stomach, does not guarantee any additional health benefits. The nutritional value of celery does not change when a person consumes it after fasting.
