A: Celery juice
seems to be the latest detox trend sweeping social media. It’s an evolution of
trend, which many physicians and dietitians I’ve worked with (myself
included) find frustrating.
All of our bodies have their own internal cleanse. The machine is used for the body’s internal organs. You should treat it with healthy food and physical activity. It is possible to eliminate toxins with a healthy body weight. From the inside. It won’t be fixed or enhanced by drinking juice.
Don’t get me wrong – celery is awesome. It contains ample
amounts of vitamins C and K, as well as folate, potassium and antioxidants.
Studies have suggested it may help reduce inflammation and boost
cardiovascular health. Plus it’s low-calorie and can be a smart addition
to any weight-loss plan.
There are a few things that can happen when juice is taken from celery. It’s important to note that juicing strips away the fiber which makes you feel full in the first place and contributes to good gut health. Everything else becomes concentrated, including the sugar. In most commercially available products it is mixed with other kinds of juices that mask its bitter taste and add lots more calories and sugar, even though it has relatively low calories and sugar content.
Extra vitamins and minerals are sometimes thrown in for moredetox magic. There isn’t any proof that those pricey juices do anything for your body.
It isn’t bad for you to drink celery juice. We should not fool ourselves into thinking that it can make us lose weight, cure our ailments or reverse an unhealthy diet.
It would be better to spend your money on a whole-food diet full of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, whole grains and lean meats, rather than buying the whole celery stalks.
