The Benefits Of Celery

This vegetable is well known for its health benefits, it is more or less good from top to toe. I knew some of these benefits but far from all of them and I'm happy in the knowledge that it is included in my daily diet and that it has been for a while.

There are three types of celery: root celery, leaves and derived celery. Celery have a fantastic composition of seedlings these consists of fatty and essential oils (makes your skin glow), vitamins -A, -E, -G, -K, folic acid (very important when pregnat), ascorbic acid, oxalic acid, chlorogenic acid , and minerals such as calcium, potassium, phosphorus, purines and sodium which all are minerals needed by the body.

Anti-aging - thanks to its acids, proteins, vitamins and minerals to ensure the stability of the cells celery slows down the aging of the human body. Celery has soothing and calming effects and is often used to treat disorders of the nervous kind, such as stress.

Helps in the fight against diabetes - Celery is important in the fight against diabetes and is often added in the diet for diabetics. Due to its capability to improve the water/salt metabolism it is also important for celery to be included in the diet for older people.

Aphrodisiac - celery is seen as an aphrodisiac, the sexual potent abilities lies in the composition and unique components of the celery plant and of its ability to increase blood flow to certain parts.

Detoxing - Celery has been known as the "pantry of health". If you use it regularly this brilliant vegetable will provide a cleansing, bracing and rejuvenating effect on your whole body.

Weight loss - If you are overweight celery is excellent to help you lose weight, because of its ability to normalize the metabolism and the fact that it has hardly any calories. Celery provides 18 calories in every 100 grams that you eat. This is a favorite for the runway models because it takes more calories for you to eat and digest it than you get from eating it.

And here are even more benefits:

Both celery herbs and celery roots are added in the diet to heal ulcers, chronic colitis and gastritis. The leaves of the celery are used to rid of toxins and pollutants. Decoction of the roots is useful when mentally fatigued. The celery roots are used to help when suffering from gastritis, vomiting, ulcers and constipation.

A celery decoction treats illnesses of the kidney and prostate. Use the seeds against painful menstruation. If allergic the juice can help the affected skin.

Celery should be incorporated into a healthy diet. Its spicy sweet and sour taste and aroma can be used for cooking various dishes of meat, vegetables, poultry, mushrooms and fish. It is easy to add to salads and soups.

Dried celery root is a portion of spicy dry mixes and it is used for pickling cucumbers, zucchini and eggplant.

All the different variations of eating this plant are endless, its root boiled or baked, the stalks eaten raw, roasted or stewed, the leaves are also used as greens, and seeds are part of the seasoning. Put them in your smoothies etc.

I’m not too crazy about the celery flavor when cooking casseroles, soups etc. However, I love it in my juices and smoothies. Please try it yourself so that you can find your favorite way and receive all of this fantastic vegetable's health benefits.

Hey Anna. When you eat too much sweets a stick or two of celery will offset the sugar rush and bloating. A great balancer. And for the guys out there celery contains anderosterone which is a male pheromone that attracts women. So grab a stick of celery and chew.

Um... If you have a significant other then them eating the celery for the pheromones is sort of moot I think. It's for us single folk. ;-)
