One vegetable has been identified as literal ‘superhero’ among all nutritious and beneficial food sources.
Plus, it’s one of the most powerful weight loss secrets I known (and I know many).
Celery is one of the most nutritious and hydrating vegetable you can consume.
Celery leaves are a good source of vitamin A whereas the stems are rich in vitamin B1, B2, B6 and C. Apart from being a vitamin powerhouse celery is rich in the minerals calcium, iron, phosphorus and sodium.
Celery is also a good source of amino acids, plant hormones and essential oils that give celery its characteristic smell.
The sodium content in celery is very different from the table salt most of us consume too much of. In celery, it is present in an organic form that is soluble and essential for body salt balance.
Celery juice, in fact, is an excellent rehydration drink (forget the sport drinks, and try this one the next time) that replenishes the salt lost due to activity.
Below are just few of the amazing benefits of celery:
Health Benefits of Celery #1 – Celery is loaded with at least 8 anti-cancer compounds that fight against different types of cancer including prostate, colon and stomach cancer.
