One vegetable has been identified as literal superhero among all nutritious and beneficial food sources. Eat it regularly and you can drive away a whole range of health issues such as: arthritis, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and even ED. Celery is one of the most nutritious and hydrating vegetable you can consume.
Plus it’s one of the most powerful weight loss secrets I known (and I know many).
Its leaves are a good source of vitamin A whereas the stems are rich in vitamin B1, B2, B6 and C. Apart from being a vitamin powerhouse celery is rich in the minerals calcium, iron, phosphorus and sodium. It is also a good source of amino acids, plant hormones and essential oils that give celery its characteristic smell.
The sodium content in it is very different from the table salt most of us consume too much of. In celery, it is present in an organic form that is soluble and essential for body salt balance. Its juice, in fact, is an excellent rehydration drink (forget the sport drinks, and try this one the next time) that replenishes the salt lost due to activity.

- It lowers cholesterol by as much as 7 points even when just 2 small stalks of celery are consumed every day.
- Celery is a natural laxative that improves digestion and relieves constipation. It also relaxes nerves stressed out by artificial laxatives.
- The sodium and potassium minerals present in celery helps regulate body fluid.
- Celery is a great food source for reducing inflammation caused by different ailments like arthritis, sinusitis, gout, asthma and bronchitis.

And since it?s a negative calorie food (you burn more digesting it than you get calories from eating it) the more celery you eat, the slimmer you’ll get.
