Across popular and social media, Celery Juice, the so called ‘miracle tonic’, has been growing in popularity. Full of vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, a daily dose of celery juice (an effective and easy way to add celery to your diet and maximise its properties) has been associated with health benefits and there have been claims that it can heal everything from IBS to cancer. But what is the science behind the claims?
A recent study found that the flavonoid apigenin found in celery starves the pathogens that create inflammation which can help reduce the damage caused by inflammation and restore immune balance.
Reducing inflammation is vital for those suffering chronic and autoimmune disease as well as any of these conditions that create or are caused by inflammation including ME/CFS and fibromyalgia.
In addition to its impressive anti-inflammatory properties, studies and reports show it delivers a wide range of other significant health benefits, including:
· Boosting Brain Function
· Improving Thyroid Function
· Reducing the Risk of Cancer
· Improving Gut Health
· Improving Mood
· Supporting the Liver
· Lowering Blood Pressure
· Hydrating and brightening the skin
· Nourishing hair and stimulating growth
· Antiseptic/Antibacterial Benefits
