Is the Celery Craze a Total Sham? Celery Juice Truth – Thomas DeLauer

Per the originator, the drink must be consumed fresh, on an empty stomach and not diluted by water, ice or other juice

Its ‘healing powers’ lie in sodium cluster salts – a subgroup of sodium that’s undiscovered – the cluster salts “revive your stomach gland, so your hydrochloric acid is actually restored and your digestion gets stronger, so protein doesn’t rot in your gut”

Claims that cluster salts kill off pathogens that can cause everything from multiple sclerosis to Lyme disease

While the main health claim from celery is unresearched, celery does come with some powerful health benefits – will help in some way, but won’t provide any miraculous healing powers

However, celery is a good source of potassium, phenolic acids and flavonoids – all of which help keep electrolyte balance, function as antioxidants, and can help lower blood pressure and inflammation
People are likely seeing that celery is helping digestion and decreasing bloat because of how hydrating celery is (about 95% water)

Review – Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Medicine

In this review, 9 studies were reviewed looking at the antioxidant activity of celery – celery, contains phenolic acids and flavonoids, such as caffeic acid, apigenin, luteolin, tannin, quercetin, and kaempferol, which have powerful antioxidant characteristics

Note: studies on celery so far have been conducted in rodents (in vivo) or in test tubes (in vitro)

Anti-inflammatory Benefits

Phenolic acids are readily absorbed through the walls of your intestinal tract, and they may be beneficial to your health because they work as antioxidants that prevent cellular damage due to free-radical oxidation reactions

Luteolin, specifically, has been shown to inhibit the production of COX-2, while caffeic acid can reduce levels of NF kappa B (NFkB)

Quercetin boosts levels of glutathione, reduces inflammation by blocking important inflammatory pathways (COX-2), and blocks the release of histamine, reducing allergies and mast cell activation

Kaempferol’s main benefit is that it’s a potent inflammatory suppressant – it has been found to correlate with reduced serum interleukin-6 levels, and be a disruptor of TNF – TNF promotes activation of IL-8

There’s a claim that celery juice lowers blood pressure, but in studies it’s been celery seed extract that’s been seen to lower blood pressure in rats

Celery juice isn’t going to contain the seed, but celery juice may likely still lower blood pressure, but because of the potassium content

Note on Serving Size:

*Celery contains a compound called apigenin that could help with stomach inflammation and, in one study, a rat-sized dose of apigenin was equivalent to the amount found in 357 grams of celery, which is about 3.5 cups of chopped celery for humans (a lot of celery)
