Celery is being hailed as the next big Superfood

It’s no secret that more and more people are starting to realize the benefits of a healthy and toxin free body. Even though there are more unhealthy people on the planet today than there were 50 years ago, one could argue that it’s because of technology and convenience.

Luckily, due to the rapid increase in various important health movements, people have realized that not only technology is to blame but it also has a great deal to do with our diets in the 21st century. We couldn’t agree more that our diets play a huge role in our health and shouldn’t be taken for granted either.

The solution to our 21st-century health problems lies in superfoods, foods that are rich in anti-oxidants, enzymes and essential minerals. Celery, one prime example, can be consumed raw or cooked and is loaded with essential minerals and vitamins such as folate, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and vitamin K.

With a nutritional history spanning centuries, this super plant can protect your cardiovascular health, fight high cholesterol levels and blood pressure, as well as heart disease. Celery also has numerous amazing benefits for skin, liver, eye and cognitive health. 

Here are six benefits of Celery that you will appreciate if you love your body as much as we’d like you to:

  1. Lowers inflammation and prevents heart disease, cancer & arthritis
  2. Prevents liver diabetes by cleansing the liver.
  3. Aids in weight loss because it possesses low calories.
  4. Reduces the risk of urinary tract infections, by boosting urine production and decreasing uric acid.
  5. Keeps Cancer at bay, especially intestinal Cancer, Breast Cancer, and Leukemia.
  6. Prevents ulcers with an ability to nourish the colon, stomach, and intestines.

 

We could have listed more benefits of consuming this amazing vegetable but the ones above should be enough to help you decide for yourself, whether celery is worth the fuss or not. All we know is, it’s been consumed around the world for centuries for a reason.

The question is, can you afford to miss out on this healthy superfood?
