What happens with my body if I drink celery juice for a week?

Celery is 95% water, so it doesn’t contain many nutrients. A 16-ounce glass of celery juice contains some folate (B9) and about 288 mg of sodium.

However, celery juice contains four phytonutrients that have significant health benefits.

1. 3-n-butylphthalide

This phytochemical can help repair damage caused by a stroke, reconstruct microcirculation, and has neuroregenerative properties. It also has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptosis, and anti-thrombosis properties.

2. Apigenin

Apigenin is one of the most studied polyphenols. It’s also found in parsley, onions, oranges, thyme, and basil. Apigenin acts as a muscle relaxer, lowers blood pressure, and improves sleep. It has anti-diabetic properties and has shown to be helpful for people with amnesia.

3. Coumaric acid

Coumaric acid is anti-inflammatory, anti-ulcer, and anti-clotting. It supports healthy blood sugar levels and can also help with inflammation associated with arthritis.

4. Kaempferol

Kaempferol is a potent antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory agent.

Celery juice is best consumed in the morning on an empty stomach. Choose organic celery to make celery juice, and add lemon juice for taste if you’d like.
