Does Celery Juice Help with Weight Loss & Inflammation
The health industry is full of potions and miracles to “melt” belly fat
A new contender in the weight loss and inflammation market is celery juice. But does it work?
Celery contains impressive amounts of vitamin C and K, as well as folate and potassium,
Celery also contains flavonoids (powerful phytonutrients with antioxidant properties) that are abundant in numerous plants. With only 7 calories, 1/2 gram of fiber and less than 1 gram of sugar per rib, celery can also be a smart addition to any weight-loss plan. So, if celery can help shed pounds and fight disease as studies show, then the juice should too.
however things change a bit when the juice of the celery is extracted. First, everything (but the fiber, which goes away) becomes concentrated. This is an important as thefiber is one of the reasons why celery helps with weight loss in the first place. Fiber makes you fuller, longer and also contributes to good gut health as well.
Any sugar that is found in celery will also be concentrated so even though the total amount is low, the sugar content will increase slightly. On average, an 8-ounce serving of celery juice will cost you about 70 calories, and 11 grams of sugar. That’s just if you get a juice option that has only celery, which is actually not easy to find because the juice itself is quite bitter. Most of the popular options are mixed with other juices to make it more palatable, which can cost you a lot more calories and sugar.
In fact, some juices will add in other vitamins, minerals or herbs to their mix for extra detoxing magic! How there is little evidence to back up its the miracle weight loss ingredient some youtubers are claiming.
Its much better to stick to eating celery as stalks with other fruits of vegetables rather than take juices, pills and powers to try and enhance the benefits
To conclude celery definately does have some weight loss benefits, these include
? Celery also is known as negative calorie vegetable as it contains very few calories.
? Celery helps to promote bowel movement and speed up the digestion process.
? It has over 90% of water content, so this is a natural diuretic.
? It performs great as a toxin cleanser.
so juicing along with whole foods approach that incorporates plenty of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, whole grains and lean sources of protein is the way forward
Drinking a glass of celery juice first thing in teh morning with as much fibre incorprated in the drink as well is definatelty better then drinking a strong coffee or a soda beverage.
