What is Celery?

Celery is rich in sodium. So? you say, I eat table salt. Doesnt that count? Actually, no! Table salt is composed of insoluble inorganic elements which lead to the development of varicose veins, hardening of the arteries and other aliments. Sea Salt is a better product, but the sale and types of sea salt can be misleading.

If the sea salt is pure white, it has been processed and all the other life giving minerals have been removed from it. Usable sea salt should be a light gray or pink. I like Celtic Sea Salt.

Salt is necessary in the generation and functions of digestive fluids in the system. Without salt, good digestion is difficult, but the body actually needs SOLUBLE salt--which includes sodium. That's where the celery comes in. Table salt is not entirely soluble and it is not in ORGANIC, (live) usable form. The sodium in celery is. Organic forms of salts allow all the other nutrients and supplements we take in to be utilized in the body. Every cell in our body is also constantly bathed in a salt solution (called saline). If this salt level is not kept in balance, dehydration sets in, and most people do not drink enough water as it is.

Celery juice helps to regulate body temperatures, helps with bronchial and lung disease and elimination of carbon dioxide from the system. It also helps with nervous afflictions, and is a great juice for rebuilding blood cells because it is high in magnesium and iron.

Mixed with carrot juice, it furnishes a balance of sulphur, iron, calcium, magnesium and sodium that will help a whole host of diseases. Use one part celery juice to two parts or more of carrot juice. I think youll like the taste.

Ingredients:

Celery seed comes from the same plant as celery (celery stalk). The tiny seeds are tan/brown in color. Celery contains boron, calcium, iron, zinc, and the following vitamins: A, B-complex, and C.

These seeds are used to treat high blood pressure (hypotensive properties), nervousness and anxiety (limonene renders mild tranquilizing effects), muscle spasms (relaxes), and appetite (improves). Other chemicals in the seeds act as a diuretic, liver tonic (antioxidant properties), anti-inflammatory, and pain reliever. Celery seed may help prevent cancer (not substantiated).

Nutrition:

Celery is valuable in weight-loss diets, where it provides low-calorie fiber bulk. Celery contains androstenone, not androsterone . Bergapten in the seeds can increase photosensitivity, so the use of essential oil externally in bright sunshine should be avoided. The oil and large doses of seeds should be avoided during pregnancy: they can act as a uterine stimulant. Seeds intended for cultivation are not suitable for eating as they are often treated with fungicides. There is a common belief that celery is so difficult for humans to digest, that it has negative calories because human digestion burns more calories than can be extracted. In an episode of Food Detectives they proved that celery does not have "negative calories", but states that the amount of calories burned digesting it burns the calories taken in, and one would lose weight if one only consumed celery.
