The Benefits of Drinking Celery Juice Every Day
It is the beginning of a new year and I am heading out to the grocery store to load up on my celery stalks. Each year, I like to kick off the new year with a one a day celery juice for 4 months straight.
I love this drink, so natural and so cleansing and refreshing. After the 4 months, I tend to go into more of a maintenance mode which is about 3 days a week.
However, when I am looking to recharge, am feeling rundown, heavy in the digestive area, or if a cold is coming on, I always go back to my 16 ounces of celery juice. It is my elixir and health remedy that I personally turn to.
I started juicing celery a few years ago and found many benefits to my overall health.
I used to have all sorts of digestion problems to stomach cramps, bloating and constipation. Like always bloated after eating.
I know, it’s not something I love to talk about but I believe that many people suffer from similar problems. It had slowly crept up to becoming more of an issue as time passed and as I have gotten older.
I’m sure I did what everyone else does, turned to the Internet and was constantly Googling information.
And I ended up trying a lot of different health remedies and diet plans with not much success.
But, it was at lunch with a friend that I first heard about all the amazing benefits of celery juice and The Medial Medium.
I was shocked that I hadn’t heard about this and was very intrigued.
So, as soon as I got home, I started reading up on everything I could find.

Jumping Right Into Juicing
I am one of those people who like to jump right into things.
So the very next day after pretty much devouring the information, I kid you not, I gulped down my first 16-ounce glass of celery juice.
I used my juicer, but if you don’t have one, you can use a blender as well and strain the liquid from the pulp. I have a separate post where you can find the blender and juicers I recommend.
I even had my husband on this and we continued drinking 16 ounces of celery juice every morning for 4 months straight.
I am not a doctor, just someone who really enjoys reading about and trying out new health remedies that are less invasive than other routes.
My Top 6 Personal Benefits From Drinking Celery Juice
- My digestion issues went away. No more bloating, no more stomach cramps and for once in my life, I was regular. Let me tell you, I actually can not remember the last time this was the case.
- My sugar cravings in the afternoons went away. I always had to have something sweet in the afternoons. Or I would feel very lightheaded or cranky.
- I lost 5 pounds during this time. But in the 3 months following, I ended up losing 20 pounds in total and I really do think it had something to do with not having the sugar and carbohydrate cravings in the afternoons.
- My skin felt amazing. I have always had fairly clear skin, but what I noticed was that my skin was even clearer, blemish-free and not as dry as usual. I have very dry skin especially in the winter and drinking the celery juice helped me retain moisture.
- I did not get my typical cold last year. With a family of four, I always get sick even just a routine cold here and there.
- I had more energy especially when I went and worked out in the mornings typically right after my morning celery juice.
Still Feeling Great Today
After 4 months, there was a shortage of celery at the local store, so we ended up breaking our streak.
We still drink it fairly consistently, a year later. I’d say probably 2-3 times a week.
Though we are not drinking it every morning, surprisingly my previous issues have not returned and I have been able to maintain my weight loss.
If I do start to feel run down, I always go back to my celery juice. For some reason, it just makes my body feel really good. It is pretty much my go-to cleanse.
Interestingly, I have found that my body can handle celery juice much more than a healthy juice or smoothie loaded with sugar.
Smoothies with strawberries, bananas, and other fruit as well as freshly made juice from apples, carrots, and beets are really hard for me to handle in the morning due to the high sugar content.
Celery juice on the other hand, has been such a wonderful way for me to start my day.
