Celery juicing - fact or fad?

Thought the celery juice craze was over but... apparently not 🙈

-

I’ve had a lot of questions in the clinic lately regarding this health trend and its effectiveness to produce good health. -



My overall consensus on celery juice - if it makes you feel good and you enjoy it, great, go for it! -

Just like any vegetable juice, it has some great properties such as nutrient density of vitamin C, potassium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin K and many other antioxidants and enzymes.

Is it overall ‘more healthy’ then a carrot and ginger juice or a spinach and avocado smoothie?… no, it’s not. -

Celery juice will never be the answer to all of your health problems just like any well-marketed ‘superfood’. But will good quality nutrient rich vegetables make you feel great? Yes they will. -

If you are opting to juice celery, this a vegetable that should be bought organic. Celery is heavily sprayed and concentrating celery into juice also concentrates pesticide consumption, so minimise your risk with this one and buy organic.

-

My last recommendation is to experiment with reusing the celery pulp. Celery is a rich source of fibre and as approximately 50% of Australians don’t consume enough fibre, re-using this fibre rich source will increase the health benefits from your grocery shop and minimise excessive food waste. -

In summary, if you feel great on celery juice, great, enjoy! But don’t buy into the myth that if you don’t drink celery juice you will cannot achieve good health.. -
