The Main Celery Juice Benefits and Side Effects

A stock of celery is certainly not the kind of vegetable that is eaten on a daily basis in most households. In fact, most people may only purchase celery a few times per year, usually because it is a necessary ingredient in some type of cooked dish. But, in order to get the maximum benefits from celery, you will want to consume it either in its raw form or as celery juice. 

Celery Juice Benefits

What Nutrients Does Celery Have?

Celery is considered to be one of the most nutritious foods you could ever consume, but in order to reap the benefits of those nutrients, it should not be cooked. Raw celery is extremely high in fiber and fluids, making it ideal for hydrating the body, aiding in digestion, and even helping with chronic illnesses and diseases.

Recent research into the use of natural and organic foods has shown that drinking a glass of celery juice per day could provide your body with eight different types of anticancer substances that can prevent or even heal certain types of cancer. These include phyto nutrients, which can help fight free radicals, which are one of the common causes of cancer.

What are the Primary Celery Juice Benefits?

One of the biggest benefits of drinking celery juice regularly is that this is a natural and safe way to lower your cholesterol. Celery juice helps to reduce the bad cholesterol in your bloodstream while also boosting the good cholesterol. In other words, this simple glass of vegetable juice can take the place of an expensive and potentially dangerous cholesterol drug.

Celery juice has been proven to be very effective at reducing and controlling blood pressure, reducing symptoms associated with various digestive problems, and helping to prevent gallstones and kidney stones. Finally, because celery is a natural anti-inflammatory agent, it can help to reduce the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, migraines, osteoarthritis, gout, respiratory problems, and skin problems as well.

When you take into consideration that raw celery juice contains antioxidants, anti-inflammatory ingredients, and the ability to help balance acid levels throughout the body, it actually makes a very powerful argument for being the perfect beverage for someone who suffers from chronic acne or other skin conditions.

Are There any Side Effects to Celery Juice?

Although weight loss may not be a side effect to many people, it should be noted that regular intake of celery juice may be beneficial in terms of creating weight loss. This is because celery is a natural diuretic and it contains a high amount of fiber in its raw form. For most people, this weight loss is a welcome side effect and one that can create a healthier body overall.

The only other side effect to regular consumption of celery juice tends to be that many people are not used to having so much fiber in their system. Therefore, you may want to start out slowly before really climbing on the celery juice bandwagon.

How Can You Make Fresh Celery Juice?

Because celery is so high in fiber, it can be difficult making juice from this vegetable by using a traditional centrifugal juicer. Instead, you may get much better results by using a masticating juicer, which extracts more juice from each stalk of celery and also maintains the integrity of the juice because of the slow speed that it uses.

The Omega VRT350HD juicer has long been a favorite of people who are serious about making juices, and it will certainly help to make all types of juice making a lot easier and more affordable. Because of the way that the Omega VRT350HD juicer masticates fruits and vegetables, you can expect to get a lot more juice from any food you put into it, including nuts and seeds.

Is This the Best Juicer for You?

If you plan on making a lot of celery juice or juices from hard fruits and vegetables, then using a masticating juicer such as the Omega VRT350HD juicer is certainly a good idea. Not only will you get a higher quality juice, but you will also get more juice from the fruits and vegetables you buy. Because there are so many benefits to drinking celery juice, this very popular masticating juicer is certainly a great purchase for many households.

    I just started on celery juice this morning (half a head), though I ended up with painful kidneys as the day progressed. I am hoping it will help with possible dysbiosis and heartburn, though I’ve also been going through a few years of being quite unwell with EBV and its affects (thyroid & adrenals, etc!), so I guess there’s maybe quite a build up. Could you please recommend a suitable regime with the celery juice which might be much more gentler on my system if possible? Thank you! 🙂

    • Julia January 3, 2017, 2:49 pm

      Hey Sharon!

      It sounds like you have quite a problem there. There are so many things you mentioned, we just don’t know what to recommend to you.

      If drinking a lot of celery juice brought this on, we suggest starting off with a much smaller quantity.

      Our normal recommendation is to not go beyond the single serving of 8 ounces per day.

      You can start off with one ounce and work your way up from there.

      This way, your system can become used to drinking the juice and extracting the nutrients from there.

      By starting off small, you’ll also allow your body to change and get used to the higher nutrient content and higher fiber content.

  • patty January 23, 2017, 11:46 pm

    you didn’t address the two dangers listed.

    • Julia March 21, 2017, 10:10 pm

      Hey Patty!

      We tend not to focus on the negatives and just list out side effects in case a person has had them before.

      In this case, excessive amounts of celery can cause miscarriage and there are people who are allergic to celery.

      You would know if you have an allergy or that you were pregnant.

    I suffer from IBS-C and celery juice has helped receive my constipation. And also has made me less n located and my stomach dosnt roll and gurgle as it used to do – the sharp gas pains that were very painful seam to be better.

    Medical medium advised to try it and he is spot on – if you suffer from gastro you blessed give celery juice a whirl 16 oz in the am on am emty stomach is best.

    • Julia March 12, 2017, 7:00 pm

      Hey Vince!

      Thanks for the compliment.

      We’re glad this was able to help you.

  • Roger April 10, 2017, 10:36 pm

    I just read the book called Medical Medium by Anthony Williams. As he suggested, I tried celery juice to help heal my hyperthyroid. However, I have noticed a twitch in my left eye. Is that normal? Thanks.

    • Julia April 26, 2017, 10:20 pm

      Hey Roger!

      Celery juice is very healthy, and it is possible that it can help with your hyper thyroid issues.

      We have not heard of nor seeing much research that shows celery juice could cause a twitch in the eyes, which would equate to a muscle spasm.

      We recommend talking to your doctor to see if this is part of the bigger issue.

  • Crickett July 30, 2017, 4:55 pm

    I’ve been juicing celery and a apple every morning for 3 weeks. I noticed right away my fibro pain was less. So now I’m noticing either I am trying to detox. Or it’s trying to kill out something . My vision has been way off and I’ve been very irritable my speech I would try to something and I would get things what I wanted to say backwords.?? Any way . I am sure I was drinking way more than what I should of. So I am backing off for a couple of days. And try it again only much smaller amount. Just wanted to post this in case anyone else had a reaction.

    • Julia August 21, 2017, 1:02 pm

      Hey Crickett!

      Congratulations on feeling less pain, we know just how difficult that is.

      There could be two issues of what’s going on.

      The first one is you are experiencing a healing crisis, where your body has reached a point where it can flush out harsher toxins. As your body is dealing with the toxins, you are going to feel sick, irritable, and have other side effects. These effects should not last more than a couple of days.

      Another issue could be having too much of one type of drink. You could be deficient in the other vitamins and minerals that the celery and apple do not supply. That can cause the same problems.

      You are doing the right thing: Backing off to one serving a day of the juice will allow your body to readjust and calm down. You should start to feel better quickly. If not, we recommend seeing a doctor, because there could be more going on than what we think.

    • Kerry February 15, 2018, 10:32 am

      Vision problems, irritability and backwards speech could indicate something far more serious than any side effects from drinking celery juice! I would go to see a doctor straight away.

  • Van September 13, 2017, 10:20 pm

    I’m looking forward to starting this tomorrow. However, I travel a lot and don’t often have easy access to juice bars while I’m out across the country. Is there an alternative superfood powder that you would recommend in it’s place so that I could at least maintain while living out of my suitcase?

    • Julia October 22, 2017, 6:42 pm

      Hey Van!

      Good luck with starting the juicing.

      We travel a lot, too. Fortunately, in many of the places you go, you will have access to fresh fruits and vegetables.

      You may have to go to a grocery store in more populous areas, or if you’re fortunate and go to a more traditional area, you’ll be able to find street vendors selling fresh foods and vegetables.

      Traveling is hard, and having the perfect juices will be very difficult.

      We recommend sticking to a great juicing plan while you are home and focusing on fruits and vegetables in your meals when you are abroad.

      There are also nutritional powders that can be beneficial in times of travel. We have an article about this here.

  • Patty Harper October 12, 2017, 8:56 pm

    I wondered if too much celery juice would change the balance of minerals, ie. sodium and potassium. Sometimes too much of one can deplete the other. That’s what I’m wondering because I love celery juice!

    • Julia October 22, 2017, 8:13 pm

      Hey Patty!

      This is a great question.

      Yes, you are absolutely right that too much of any food or beverage will change the balance of minerals and vitamins in your system.

      That is why we recommend rotating through the various juices and vegetables.

      Because you love celery juice so much, we recommend you keeping to half a serving or one serving per day.

      That way you can continue your celery juice every day, and still, have room for many other fruits and vegetables. This will help keep you in optimal health.

  • Celine October 27, 2017, 8:36 am

    My dad have high blood pressure and recently suffered from several gout attacks. I’m starting him on Cherry concentrate drink (at night) hoping that it will reduce the uric acid in his body. I hope to start juicing pure celery juice for him. What is the recommended daily amount for him? Or, maybe three times a week? He will only drink it at night when i get home from work. He hate celery juice..

    • Julia November 20, 2017, 7:35 am

      Hey Celine!

      Thanks for the question.

      We believe both cherry and celery juice will help blood pressure issues, but if he hates celery juice, he may not drink this at all.

      There are many other juices you can try that would be more appealing.

      Carrot juice is wonderful for the skin, eyes, and can help reduce blood pressure. It generally has a pleasant taste most people enjoy.

      If you do start with the celery juice, stick to small amounts. You can try 2 oz three times a week to begin with. Or, if he will accept it, add some celery to the cherry juice. That way the strong flavor of the cherry juice will overpower the flavor of the celery.

      Keep working with your dad, it’s great to see how much you care.

  • Nelmar Paulo January 27, 2018, 6:22 am

    Is it good to take celery juice even you don’t want to loose weight ?

    • Julia February 20, 2018, 12:43 am

      Hey Nelmar!

      That’s a good question. Consuming one serving of celery juice every day benefits your health in multiple ways. It will help you maintain a healthy weight and provide lots of nutrients for your body. Be sure to combine this with a healthy diet that rotates through lots of different fruits and vegetables so you get a full range of healthy nutrients. You should not have any detriment taking celery juice every day.

      Hope it helps.

  • Ella Peterson February 10, 2018, 6:17 am

    I’ve been drinking celery juice for about 4 weeks now I drink 16 oz every morning on an empty stomach do you think I’m drinking too much or is that a good thing I have diabetes and I’m overweight but I’ve been feeling very good lately and I have lost weight and I’m having lots of energy

    • Julia February 20, 2018, 12:46 am

      Hey Ella!

      Congratulations on losing weight and feeling good! Celery juice is a great way to get some nutrients, and we think it’s a good idea that you continue as long as you’re feeling good. We do suggest cutting it down to about 8 oz and using other low carbohydrate vegetables to supplement the nutrients you are getting. You will still be getting all the benefits of the celery juice, plus the benefits of the other fruits and vegetables.

      Thank you!
