Over the past few months our Instagram feeds have been flooded with babes sipping bright green juices. It seems like everyone from Kim Kardashian to your next door neighbour is doing it, celery is officially trending. But why? We were curious too babe, so we’ve done some investigating to find out if celery juice is everything it's cracked up to be.
Where did this trend come from?
Downing green juices loaded with vegetables for improved health isn’t a new fad by all means. However, 2019 has been all about celery juice. The idea of celery juice as a cure-all was discovered by New York Times best selling author, Anthony Williams, who claims drinking the green juice will reduce inflammation and improve gut health. Now, you’re probably already planning on munching down on some celery sticks for a snack aren't you? Well, the key is actually in the juicing! According to Williams, when celery is juiced, the pulp is removed and its healing benefits become more powerful. You're also able to consume more celery goodness via juice than you would by eating it.
How do I make celery juice?
If you want to be part of the #celeryjuicechallange, simply juice a large bunch of celery to create around 500ml of pure celery juice and drink it every morning. Best results have been proven when consuming on an empty stomach 30 minutes prior to food consumption, but a green juice at any time of the day is beneficial in our books.
