And we thought celery juice was super-powerful before…
Celery is arguably 2019’s hottest superfood with devotees swearing by its health benefits including improved gut health, more energy and less cravings.
It's an easy regime - simply juice one large bunch of celery (which makes around 500ml of juice) and drink it every morning on an empty stomach.
Because life is busy, Elle likes to combine her celery juice with 2 teaspoons of SUPER ELIXIR Greens (that is an extra 45 whole food ingredients) to multiply its benefits - think improved liver function, immune system, gut health, cognitive function, glowing skin and stronger hair and nails.
Need to know more? Here is the 101 on Celery Juice.
1. Does celery juice cause bloating?
For some, a feeling of bloating can occur depending on how toxic your digestive tract has become and how much undigested debris is present.
Luckily celery juice rapidly speeds up digestion by promoting the liver to increase bile production that instantly strengthens the stomach’s hydrochloric acid production. This helps break down old undigested protein and fats that are trapped at the bottom of the stomach and in the small intestinal tract. Once these dissolve bloating tends to go away.
2. When is the best time to drink celery juice?
The best time is first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. For optimum results add 2 teaspoons of the SUPER ELIXIR Greens and stir to dissolve. BOOM!
3. Can I eat or blend celery instead of juicing it.
Eating and blending is not the same as juicing. When celery is juiced, the fiber is removed, and its healing benefits are more powerful. It also allows you to digest more celery as juice, than you would by eating it.
4. Can I freeze it?
Fresh is always best as celery’s powerful medicinal qualities will decrease if frozen. However if you can’t drink your celery juice soon after making it and freezing is your only option, then go for it.
5. How much celery juice should I drink?
500ml (17 ounces) of straight celery juice a day is ideal for receiving its healing benefits.
6. How long will it take to feel the benefits?
Almost everyone feels the benefits of some kind in the first week of drinking it. Many even feel benefits after their first juice. It all depends on the person and their circumstances.
