Celery has Superpowers

Celery juice is highly alkalizing and one of the most hydrating foods we can put in our bodies.  In ancient times, it was considered a medicinal herb used to treat a variety of health complaints.

Celery leaves are high in vitamin A, and the stems are full of vitamins B1, B2, B6 and C and as well as potassium, folic acid, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, sodium and essential amino acids.

This super power food has natural oils that are very calming to the nervous system.  I juice every day with celery…as per why I am so calm!  Celery is rich in sodium, which is why it can be used in place of salt.  Another reason why I drink it, very good for those who do athletics and need more hydration.
