Compounds like limonene, selinene, furocoumarin glycosides, and vitamins A and vitamin C are some of the most useful. But why is celery good for you? Let us dive into the world of celery and find out. Reduces Inflammation Celery’s health benefits range from immunity to digestion An in vivo study shows a celery-rich diet could help reduce inflammation in the body, restoring balance to the immune system .  Inflammation is provoked when viruses or bacteria attack the body or from injuries. Inflammation is the body’s first step in healing. However, chronic inflammation  is abnormal and is linked to some forms of cancer, as well as conditions like: Alzheimer’s. Lower cholesterol. Prevent hemorrhoids or diverticulitis. But there are more digestive tract benefits, too. Due to its natural diuretic properties, celery is often a home remedy for bladder, urinary tract, and kidney health issues. The antioxidants in celery reduce inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract as well. Celery also contains thiamine, i.e., vitamin B1, which increases the production of digestive acids in the stomach. Protects Cardiovascular Health Celery’s ability to lower cholesterol reduces cardiac risks The diuretic properties of celery improve the circulatory system and heart by removing excess fluid from the body. Fluid removal helps lower blood pressure and removes excess cholesterol from the body. Also, the high fiber content  prevents cardiovascular disease by lowering LDL and total cholesterol levels. This all makes a healthier, happier cardiovascular system and heart. Prevents And Blocks Cancer Celery’s flavonoids are powerful antioxidants against cancer Celery contains many antioxidant and flavonoid compounds  that help trap and neutralize free radicals to prevent cellular damage. Free radicals damage RNA and DNA, causing diseases like cancer and premature aging. Celery contains luteolin , a flavonoid that helps with cancer prevention. Luteolin is commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine for this reason, as well as to treat high blood pressure and reduce inflammation. Another flavonoid in celery is apigenin .  Studies show apigenin may be helpful as a chemo-preventative agent that prevents cancer from developing. Studies suggest that one-third to one-half of all cancers may be preventable. So, adding foods like celery that have chemo-preventive agents may effectively fight some forms of cancer. Other Diseases Celery supports the health of many organs Scientific evidence  shows celery may help prevent jaundice, liver diseases, urinary tract obstructions, gout, and other rheumatic disorders. One study of rats shows some promise in celery treating neurological conditions and brain injuries via its apigenin. Apigenin  has properties thought to stimulate the adult brain to regenerate neuronal cells. The list of health benefits from celery just keeps going. These claims, and others, require more study to determine just how beneficial celery can be.

Celery is also rich in omega fatty acids that keep your skin looking young and vibrant. Using celery in a face mask or facial scrub can help revitalize and rehydrate your skin as well. How Much Celery Should You Eat A Day? While all the benefits of celery aren’t entirely known, the evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of adding it to your diet. When you mix celery with a nutritionally dense diet, you get the most benefits from this tasty vegetable. But since celery is mostly water, it is extremely low in calories. So, overeating celery can lead to nutrient deficiencies. So, how much celery should I eat a day? According to nutritional professionals, you should limit celery to no more than 1 cup of chopped celery, or four stalks, per day for the most health benefits. How To Add Celery To Your Diet This crunchy vegetable can be enjoyed in many ways. Diced, cubed, or whole. Steamed celery is also delicious. But for most people, simply adding it to dishes for that crisp, refreshing flavor is essential. If you are wondering how others are eating celery, here are some of the most common ways: Celery stalks topped with peanut butter or soft cheese. Celery sticks in your favorite dip instead of chips. Added chopped celery to tuna, chicken salad, or potato salad. Mixed into your stir-fry. Fresh celery blended into smoothies. Or grab your juicer and a couple of stalks of celery to make a refreshing glass of celery juice. Because of all the health benefits, celery juice has gained popularity in recent years. But is celery juice good for you? Let’s find out. Why Is Celery Juice Good For You? Whether you make your own or grab a bottle on the go, celery juice may be the ideal way to eat this healthy vegetable. Although celery juice does have less fiber than eating the vegetable whole, it is still low-calorie. Celery juice is a wonderful way to get the other beneficial nutrients that celery is loaded with. In fact, celery juice may pack more punch than the stalks alone. It is still low in sugar but high in anti-inflammatory compounds and antioxidant-rich. If you want to add vegetables or get more vitamins , celery juice may be just the answer. Potential Side Effects Is celery good for you? The simple answer is YES. But here are some side effects of celery you should know about. Gastrointestinal issues — due to high fiber content, celery may cause gas, bloating, and soft stools if eaten in excess. Celery juice reduces the fiber content while boosting the health benefits. Thyroid issues — due to goitrogens , which impair iodine uptake when eaten in massive quantities raw. Skin sensitivity to ultraviolet light — due to a naturally occurring compound called psoralens .  Overexposure to the sun can cause a rash that lasts up to a week. Pesticide contamination — although celery did not land on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen guide for highly contaminated foods, it was not on the Clean Fifteen list either. However, celery can contain a moderate amount of pesticides, so stick to organic celery if possible and always rinse thoroughly before eating. People taking medications for thyroid function, clotting, and blood pressure should consult their doctor before adding celery juice to their diet. Celery juice may interfere with how these medications work. The Bottom Line Whether eating it raw or drinking the delicious juice, celery is loaded with benefits and essential nutrients. Celery is low in calories and sugar but packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and much more. So, make sure to consider the many ways celery can help improve your overall health, and remember to grab some on your next grocery run. + 14 sources Health Canal avoids using tertiary references.
