The other day I was reading an article about how celery juice was the new buzz word for health and wellbeing. Even some celebrities were harping on about how beneficial it is to drink celery juice every morning so I thought for this months blog post, I will share some of the benefits this health drink can provide.
Celery is a member of the carrot family and the plant and it seeds provide a good source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It contains a high levels of vitamin K and amounts of vitamin A, B2 and B6 and vitamin C and a good source of folate, potassium, manganese, pantothenic acid and fibre. It is also low in calories and sugar making it a good choice for a quick snack. I personally haven’t tried celery juice on it’s own, but I’m a big fan of making your own juices instead of drinking shop brought as the nutrients are still alive and it’s not pasteurised which kills off all the active nutrients.
