This past weekend, my family and I enjoyed a visit with my mom and her husband, who traveled all the way up to Montana from coastal California. As cheesy as it sounds, my mom is an awesome health resource, always scouring the latest headlines for the Next Big Thing. This trip, she introduced us to celery juice.
Now, I always just viewed celery as a filler herb (yep, apparently it isn’t a vegetable. Who knew?) It’s tedious to eat and, while not particularly unpalatable, it’s also not particularly delicious… unless you dress it up with peanut butter and raisins. Yet, I recently discovered there’s a whole world of possibility contained in those stringy green stalks.
While the health benefits of celery haven’t yet been extensively studied (no surprise there), I’m finding hundreds of powerful stories online of folks who juiced it, drank it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and saw incredible changes to their bodies: better skin, digestion, and brain health among them.
You can read more about this fad – touted by A-list celebs like Pharrell, Mirana Kerr, and Sylvester Stallone – right here on the MedicalMedium.com. My wife and I have yet to try it, but we’re shopping around for juicers to give it a real go.
What do you think? Is celery juice worth a shot, or total insanity? Share in the comments below.
