If it sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is, says accredited practicing dietitian Robbie Clark, who says that the celery juice craze is nothing more than a testament to our desire for quick fixes. “Celery is a nutrient-dense vegetable, it’s packed with vitamin B6, C, A and K as well as potassium, folate, fibre and over a dozen types of antioxidants. But boiling down the complexities of chronic disease to a single food, without scientific evidence or consensus from medical experts is misguided. Anthony “Medical Medium” William has absolutely no medical or health credentials and he relies on medical advice from the spirit world.
Is the celery juice trend for you?
Clark says that while drinking celery juice won’t do you any harm, you should proceed with caution if you take medications for blood pressure, anxiety, cholesterol or blood thinners as some ingredients in celery can interact with them, so check with your GP first. “Drinking celery juice is fine if you want to do it, but I would not reply on it to cure all your woes. You need a balance of nutrients from a variety of whole foods.”
