It's been all over social media and sure, it's pretty. But what is the actual deal with celery juice? Celery was (and is) a popular ingredient in green juice from back in the day, but it seems to be having a resurgence as a stand-alone hero if Instagram is any indication of its popularity. We love simplicity so we're all about a one-ingredient elixir that works miracles. It is literally (yes literally) just the liquid that you can get squeezed out of celery stalks. This review by domino clearly shares the benefits including help with: digestion, improved cardiovascular health, liver detoxification, help maintain a healthy weight and more.
To make your own you'll need a juicer or a blender paired with a fine mesh strainer. Once you make it if stored properly it will keep for 2-3 days. It's recommended to drink celery juice on an empty stomach, first thing in the morning for maximum benefits and to give it at least 1-2 weeks to start noticing the benefits.
If you want to kick it up a notch you can customize your recipe for specific benefits like improved skin and who doesn't want a little extra glow? This Vogue recipe has us dreaming of mornings.
