Can it help you lose weight?
Celery juice is often said to promote weight loss.
Proponents claim that drinking 16 ounces (475 ml) every morning breaks down and dissolves fat cells stored in your liver. However, this claim lacks scientific evidence and requires further research
That said, celery juice may promote weight loss in other ways.
Your weight depends on how many calories you consume throughout the day
Celery juice is relatively low in calories, providing 85 calories per 16 ounces (475 ml)
Replacing higher-calorie beverages, such as sugary coffee drinks or soda, with celery juice is a smart choice if you’re trying to lose weight.
Additionally, drinking low-calorie beverages like celery juice before meals may promote fullness and help you eat fewer overall calories
Although celery juice is a healthy, low-calorie beverage, the key to long-term weight loss doesn’t lie with a single food. Instead, combine exercise with a nutritious diet based on whole foods.
Other potential benefits
Celery juice may have several other benefits.
Celery juice is high in phytonutrients, which are plant compounds that have been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects
Flavoring are the main class of phytonutrients in celery. Increased flavoring intake is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer
Thus, whole celery and its juice may help prevent certain diseases.
May help control blood pressure
Celery juice may also aid blood pressure control
This effect is likely due to celery’s concentration of nitrates, which promote heart health and help lower blood pressure
These are not to be confused with the nitrates and nitrites used in food preservation, which are linked to negative effects
May lower high cholesterol
Celery may also help reduce cholesterol levels
Several animal studies associate celery intake with a significant reduction in cholesterol levels
