Celery is an amazing herb with a host of health benefits including improved digestion and elimination. If you suffer with reflux, halitosis, constipation, diarrhea, food sensitivities, gas, or bloating or if you have more serious issues like gastritis, colitis, IBS, Crohn's, ulcers, or even cancer, then you will want to bring celery juice into your life.
To enjoy all of its benefits, drink 16 oz freshly pressed, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach with nothing added. If your digestive system is sensitive, start with 8oz and work up to 16 oz. Some people notice a difference right away and for others it may take a few weeks to see consistent results.
Many people around the world are experiencing relief from their digestive issues by drinking celery juice, but why?
Here are just a few of the reasons that drinking 16 oz plain, freshly pressed celery juice first thing in the morning on an empty stomach is so beneficial for your gut health.
1. Increases Hydrochloric Acid
Celery juice contains unique trace minerals that rejuvenate stomach gland tissue increasing their production of hydrochloric acid (HCL). Stomach acid kills unproductive bugs that try to enter the body through the mouth, reducing our susceptibility to illness. Hydrochloric acid begins the breakdown of food, so we digest, absorb and eliminate better when we have healthy HCL levels. Healthy digestion starts with healthy HCL levels.
2. Digestive Enzymes
Celery Juice contains over two dozen digestive enzymes that revive and reactivate weakened enzymes from the liver and pancreas hanging around in the intestines. These reactivated enzymes set about breaking down undigested food lingering in the intestines and reducing unproductive acid and mucus. This lowers inflammation in the intestines, improving nutrient absorption and reducing gut permeability. This makes celery juice a potent remedy for conditions like stomach or intentional pain, leaky gut, and chronic constipation or diarrhea.
3. Anti-Viral & Anti-Bacterial Sodium Cluster Salts
Celery juice contains unique sodium cluster salts which kill the unproductive bacteria and viruses that cause chronic digestive illnesses. These cluster salts are delicate and easily disrupted which is why celery juice needs to be fresh and have nothing added to it. These unique cluster salts also strengthen bile production, improving the digestion of fat and help remove heavy metals from the gut which feed unproductive viruses and bacteria. Celery juice’s sodium cluster salts are a powerful weapon against chronic digestive issues.
4. Complete Living Electrolytes
Celery contains complete living electrolytes that nourish the nervous system and improve cell to cell communication. Digestion and elimination are regulated by our autonomic nervous system, the part of the nervous system that controls automatic functions that we don’t have to think about, like digestion and elimination. The complete living electrolytes in celery juice bring life to our organs, improving every aspect of digestion and elimination.
5. Powerful Prebiotic
Celery juice actively destroys, breaks down, and removes unproductive bacteria while at the same time eliminating their food sources like undigested food, unproductive mucous, heavy metals, and other toxins. This creates a healthy environment that encourages the growth of good bacteria.
Whether you suffer from serious chronic digestive issues or simply want to improve your gut health, try bringing celery juice into your life. It has many benefits for the gut and the whole body.
