Celery juice may not sound like the most appetizing food to fall in love with, but it is the new wellness food that people, including celebrities, can't get enough of. This trend started on Instagram with wellness channels beginning to promote this celery juice, and all of its benefits from helping with eczema to delivering antioxidants. So this begs the question...should you add celery juice into your spa menu?
The low-calorie juice checks a lot of boxes in terms of delivering vitamins A, K and C, beta carotene, flavonoids, phytonutrients and tons of other nutrients the body needs. However, it goes beyond being low calorie and diet friendly, and it is shown to help prevent chronic diseases, lower blood pressure and minimize oxidative stress, according to Healthline.com.
While this may have started trending in 2018, the research for it can date back to 2015. A study published by NCBI discussed the anti-inflammatory benefits, explaining how it can be used to treat arthritis.
Celery and the Skin
It is fairly well known that celery has anti-inflammatory properties, and it is actually the luteolin and polyacetylenes that provide powerful antioxidant properties and lower inflammatory prostaglandins.1
A more indirect way that celery juice can actually help the skin is by promoting sleep. Getting enough sleep at night is important for skin care, and celery restores hydration and contains a high amount of magnesium to help clients sleep better at night. 1
Finally, drinking celery juice can actually improve the skin as well by providing anti-aging benefits through vitamin K and vitamin C.1
