Drinking Fresh Celery Juice
One celery juice combination that I have come to really enjoy is adding in lemon, ginger root, and fennel with the celery. All four of these ingredients are bright and refreshing in taste as well as supportive for digestive health. I love the mild heat that the ginger root adds, and appreciate its antifungal properties to support healing from candida albicans overgrowth (candidiasis). 
How Long Can You Drink Celery Juice?
Celery (Apium Graveolens L) is a vegetable that I have been juicing since the year 2012. During this time I have developed a true love for celery juice, not only for how I feel when drinking it, but also because it produces a lot of juice for a small cost. In my local grocery store, one head of celery is $1.79 each and $1.89 for organic.
When you first begin drinking fresh juice, take it slow and steady. Think of your new beverage as a sipping juice. The concentrated nutrition will give you an invigorating feeling that you will want to gradually ease into.
What is the Best Juicer to make Celery Juice with?
To prepare fresh juice, I switch between two different juicers. I will use the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth centrifugal juicer for root vegetable based juices. I will also use this juicer when I need to quickly prepare a fresh juice because it juices produce at a higher speed. For example, when my husband is rushing out the door and needs an easy lunch to take with him to work I use the Hamilton Beach juicer. It’s budget friendly price shouldn’t trick you, it is an excellent juicer – especially when beginning. I have used this juicer since 2007, the only reason I needed to replace my first one was because I accidentally dropped it. I also use the Omega 8006 masticating juicer, purchased from Amazon, for delicate greens. You can use either juicer to make this recipe, or the one you currently own. Don’t hang up on the best juicer, just get what you can afford and start juicing. The best juicer is the one you will use!
How to Buy Celery for Juicing
When you are consuming large volumes of juice on a regular basis it may feel costly because of the amount of produce you need to purchase. Celery is actually quite inexpensive when kept in comparison with other beverages such as coffee, wine, and soda.
However, even after many years of drinking fresh vegetable juice, buying 10 heads of celery at a time can feel a bit awkward because of the stares from fellow shoppers. I think it’s safe to assume most are wondering what the heck I’m doing with all of that celery. I know I used to stare longingly at the people buying whole heads of green leaf lettuce, wondering what the heck they do with them before I started eating a plant-based diet. Most cashiers that are interested enough to ask, guess right and know I’m making juice. I’ve also managed to make new friends that I invite to join the Alkaline Diet Support Group on Facebook. Basically, buying heaps of produce can be a good conversation starter when you’re in the grocery store so don’t feel shy or odd when doing it.
The Healing Benefits of Celery Juice
I’ve had several lovely conversations about the benefits of fresh made juice with individuals that drink it themselves. They each notice a positive change in health first-hand that is undeniable. I believe we can attribute this change to the powerful antioxidant activity of celery that is being studied for it’s therapeutic benefits as a treatment option in disease management.
