Celery juice is a drink that the drug companies don’t want you to take on a regular basis. Why? This drink is an all natural very inexpensive way to help maintain your health and in some cases may even help in the prevention of many maladies that the pharmaceuticals just want you to take their very expensive pills that sometimes have very bad side effects. Check out the excerpt from an article that I recently found . It reveals what the drug companies really want to keep from you… A healthy all natural drink that delivers a multitude of nutrients and vitamins as well as many amazing wellness remedies.
Fights Cancer – Celery is known to contain at least eight families of anti-cancer compounds. A study at Rutgers University of New Jersey found that celery contains a number of compounds that help prevent cancer cells from spreading.
Lowers Cholesterol – Laboratory studies also indicate that butyl phthalide, a chemical in celery, may help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol. According to researchers at the University of Chicago, celery reduces cholesterol levels by as much as 7 points with as little as 2 stalks a day. Celery also aids in increasing bile acid secretion which helps to remove cholesterol from the body.
Aids in Digestion – Special nutrients in the fiber are released during juicing that aid bowel movements. This makes celery a natural laxative that helps to relieve constipation. It also helps relax nerves that have been overworked by man-made laxatives.
Diuretic – The potassium and sodium in celery juice are powerful body fluid regulators that stimulate urine production to help rid the body of excess fluid.
Lower blood pressure – Celery’s potential for reducing high blood pressure has long been recognized by Chinese medicine. Studies show that drinking celery juice every day for 1 week can significantly help lower blood pressure.
Insomnia – The minerals and essential oils in celery juice have a calming effect on the nervous system, making it beneficial for insomniacs. Its high magnesium levels help people to relax into a soothing and restful sleep.
Elimination and Prevention of stones – Celery juice is an amazing eliminator of toxins from the body, which aids in the breaking and elimination of urinary and gall bladder stones. This lovely juice helps those who have suffered from stones from getting them again.
Increased Sexuality – Celery juice is beneficial for weak sexuality, yet doesn’t cause an uncontrollable urge as some pharmaceutical drugs do. Celery balances the system rather than increasing it.
Celery can be juiced with any other fruits or vegetables. A particularly delicious and powerful combination is carrot, apple, cucumber and celery.
