Who knew that celery was such a superfood?! This celery juice contains over 20 anti-inflammatory compounds that not only lower your blood pressure and reduce the secretion of stress hormones, but it also helps strengthen the immune system, keeps cholesterol levels healthy, fights cancer and aids in natural weight loss.
Celery is a nutritional powerhouse. It contains a high concentration of vitamin C, which is important for a strong and healthy immune system. It also helps eradicate free radicals and prevents mutated DNA (which normally leads to cancer).
The number of anti-inflammatory compounds is also quite impressive. It contains over 20 inflammation-busting chemicals that help lower oxidative stress and prevent the production of TNF-alpha, a compound that normally promotes inflammation and tissue destruction.
Phthalides in celery also help lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol by increasing bile acid secretion in the liver, and also helps lower blood pressure by up to 14%. Catecholamines in celery also reduces the secretion of stress hormones, which normally contribute to high blood pressure and bad moods.
