Plus the ultimate green juice recipe.

By: Rebecca Jacobs

Celery juice has been one of the most popular green juice trends over the last few years and it doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. While we see various beverage trends pop up each year, this green juice is something wellness gurus are still talking about. 

Why is Celery Juice So Popular?

So let’s break it down, this green beverage became popular after Medical Medium Anthony William talked about the speculated health properties of drinking celery juice every morning. Since then, it has become a viral sensation. 

And, while it appears to be a bit of a trend at the moment, there are definitely some well-known health benefits of celery, and adding fresh green juice to your diet is a great way to up your daily veggie intake! 

Benefits of Celery 

Juicing, in general, holds a number of health benefits. Juicing fresh fruits and veggies can fuel your body with an extremely easily digestible source of essential vitamins, minerals, and powerful antioxidants to keep your body strong and healthy. Many people turn to juicing to help support immune health, digestion, and detoxification. 

But, what is it about celery specifically that makes a great green juice? Celery holds a number of health benefits.

  • Low in calories
  • Low in sugar
  • Rich in vitamin C & vitamin K
  • Rich in folate
  • Rich in potassium
  • Full of health-promoting antioxidants  
  • Provides hydration

There’s More Than One Way to Make Celery a Healthy Part of Your Wellness Routine 

The great thing about celery juice, or just celery in general, is that you don’t have to follow a certain cleanse or diet in order to reap the benefits. You can simply add celery juice into your morning routine or enjoy celery as part of a clean eating diet. 

We love this FitOn PRO Cleansing Green Juice. It’s made with other green veggies and fresh fruit, adding in a powerful nutritional punch. 

  • 5 celery stalks
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tsp ginger, peeled
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 tsp lime, fresh squeezed (optional)
  • ½ green apple (optional)

Directions

Place all of the ingredients into a juicer or blender. Blend to combine. Enjoy!

The Takeaway

It’s important to note that while celery has become one of the most popular trends that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other great veggie options and juicing celery certainly isn’t the only way to get it into your diet. In fact, eating whole celery vs. just the juice will provide you with more fiber. 

If you do want to give the celery juice try, for optimal results, celery juice expert Anthony William recommends enjoying a glass each morning on an empty stomach. Not ready to jump right into drinking straight green juice? There are some other ways you can add this veggie to your diet. Try adding some celery to a green smoothie, a salad, or enjoyed with some unsweetened almond butter.

Always speak with your healthcare provider or Registered Dietician about any questions you have about your diet.
