If You Eat Celery Every Day For 7 Days, THIS May Happen To Your Body

Celery is usually a staple of any veggie platter and makes for a versatile ingredient in everything from soups to salads. While you’re probably familiar with this marshland plant, you might not have realized the vast benefits that can come from eating this vegetable.

Celery may be composed of mostly water, but it’s also chock-full of antioxidants, beneficial enzymes, and major vitamins and minerals. All of these properties can have incredible benefits for the skin, hair, and your overall health.

Most people tend to consume the celery stalk, but before you go chopping away for your next meal, the leaves and seeds (which can be found in a variety of forms) can also have impressive health benefits. It can be easy to underestimate this veggie, but after reading these amazing benefits associated with celery, you’ll be sure to have it as a regular addition to your grocery list.

1. Anti-Inflammatory

Celery contains particular non-starch types of polysaccharides which are believed to give it anti-inflammatory benefits. It also contains antioxidants which fight against free radical damage, which is a major contributing factor to inflammation and chronic diseases like cancer and arthritis. Furthermore, those who have ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, or other issues with inflammation in their digestive tracts can benefit greatly from eating celery because the antioxidants in it have been shown, and used, to effectively treat those conditions.

2. Regulates Body Temperature

Celery’s high water content and naturally present electrolytes help to regulate your body temperature by both hydrating and cooling your body down on a really hot day

3. Protects and Repairs Damage at the Cellular Level

Celery contains over a dozen different types of antioxidants including flavonoids, vitamin K, and lunularin. These antioxidant nutrients help to naturally relieve oxidative stress and aid our bodies in removing damage causing free radicals, thus providing protection for our cells, blood vessels, and organs against them.

4. Helps Prevent Ulcers

Celery can help prevent ulcers, those tiny painful sores in the stomach or small intestine, from forming because it contains a certain type of ethanol extract that protects the digestive system lining. Studies have shown that celery greatly increases amounts of gastric mucus in the stomach lining which is vital in the protection against ulcers, rips and tears. This is especially true for people who suffer from low or insufficient levels of gastric mucus to begin with.

5. Helps Prevent Urinary Tract Infections

Celery is like cranberries in this respect because it stimulates urine production while also helping to reduce uric acid levels. This makes it an excellent aid for helping to prevent and fight against UTIs and other bacterial infections in the reproductive and/or digestive tracts.

6. Helps You Lose Weight

At only 10 calories per stick it’s extremely low calorie, all-natural, and yet still full of vitamins and nutrients. It also helps regulate metabolism and fills you up, thereby reducing your urge to snack afterwards on less healthy options.

In addition, celery has been proven to help lower cholesterol, prevent high blood pressure, and protect our livers against fat build up. It may even help to protect us from certain types of cancers but the research in that area is on-going and more studies in that area are needed. The video goes over all these points in greater detail so check it out and remember to stock up on celery the next time you go to the store!
