The Alkaline Benefits of Eating and Drinking Celery
1) Anti Cancer: Celery is known to contain at least eight families of Anti-Cancer compounds. Among them are the acetylenics that have been shown to stop the growth of tumor cells. Phenolic acids which block the action of prostaglandins that encourage the growth of tumor cells. And coumarins which help prevent dietary and metabolic acids from damaging cells and One of active compounds in celery is the phytochemical coumarin, which has been proven effective in cancer or acid prevention and capable of enhancing the activity of certain white blood cells that help buffer the acids that cause cancer. The phytochemical coumarins prevent the formation and development of acids that cause colon and stomach cancers.
2 ) Pneumonia – Celery is a well known vegetable for stimulating the immune system to help fight dis-ease. Celery is packed with anti-oxidants and alkalizing compounds that fight the acids from bacteria and yeast that helps to prevent acidic causing inflammation.
3 ) Hay Fever: Celery comes on top of the list for foods that alleviate the acids that cause allergy symptoms. Also on that list are carrots, ginger, peppermint, parsley, turmeric, chamomile and cabbage.
4 ) Lower blood pressure: Drinking celery juice every day for a week significantly helps lower blood pressure. A compound called phtalides helps to relax the muscle around arteries, dilating the vessels and allowing blood to flow normally. To be effective, drink the juice for one week, stop for three weeks, and start over.
5 ) Cholesterol: This humble pale juice has been shown to effectively and significantly lower acids that in turn lowers the total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol which is generated by the body to buffer excess dietary and/or metabolic acids.
6 ) Inflammation: The polyacetylene in celery is an amazing relief for all inflammation caused by acidic lifestyle and dietary choice leading to the acidic symptoms of Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, asthma and bronchitis.
7 ) Kidney function: Celery promotes healthy and normal kidney function by aiding elimination of acidic toxins from the body. While eliminating acids, it will then prevent the formation of kidney stones which are chelated acids with alkaline elements such as calcium or magnesium.
8 ) Diuretic: The potassium and sodium in celery juice helps to regulate body fluid and stimulate urine production, making it an important help to rid the body of excess acidic fluid.
9 ) Nervous system: The organic alkaline minerals in celery juice has a calming effect on the nervous system, making it a wonderful drink for insomniacs.
10 ) Menopausal Symptoms : Celery, along with dill, fennel, anise and all tasty herbs of the celery family, are amongst the list of mildly oestrogenic herbs, due to the gently oestrogenic phtyochemical anethole. They all have 40 to 50 phytochemicals and are a mix of anethole, apigenin, kaempferol, luteolin and quercetin. All these compounds are very good at alliviating all menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, and contribute to preventing heart disease and osteoporosis but without the side-effects of HRT treatment.
11 ) Memory Loss : Celery contains a compound called luteolin, which has shown promise for lowering levels of acidic plaque-forming proteins in the brain. This, in turn, can counteract risk factors for acidic symptoms of Alzheimer’s, including atherosclerosis, inflammation and oxidative damage. Another good source of luteolin is flaxseed.
12 ) Urinary stones, breaking of: The diuretic effect of alkalizing celery juice also aids the breaking and elimination of acidic urinary and gall bladder stones. and With loads of analgesic, anti-inflammatory and diuretic compounds, as well as some calcium blockers, celery seed extracts seem appropriate for buffering the acids that cause bladder outfections. Celery seeds are said to improve the quantity and alkaline quality of urine and are a useful diuretic for urinary tract outfections.
13 ) Bursitis : Two of the best natural sources of COX-2 inhibitors are celery and celery seeds, which contain high amounts of painkilling apigenin. So bursitis and many other acid inflammatory conditions will benefit from including celery in your diet or making a tea from freshly crushed celery seeds.
14 ) Constipation: The natural laxative effect of celery helps to relieve constipation. It also helps relax nerves that have been overworked by man-made laxatives.
15 ) Acidity: The important minerals in this magical juice effectively balance the body’s alkaline blood pH, neutralizing dietary and/or metabolic acidity. Celery also helps indigestion and ulcers which are also caused by acidic lifestyle and dietary choices.
16 ) Weight Loss: Drink celery juice frequently throughout the day to buffer acids that would cause the body to retain fat. It also helps curb your acid or sugar cravings for sweets, chocolate. alcohol, and other rich acidic foods that causes the body to retain fat as an alkaline buffer to protect the organs that sustain live.
