Many are now becoming aware of the amazing health benefits and nutritional value of celery. Celery is a natural diuretic, which may help in flushing toxins out of the body. Celery is also rich in potassium and sodium making it a great natural electrolyte formula. Many fitness gurus tout celery juice recipes as a top choice for electrolyte replacement after massive workouts.
Since celery is a low-caloric food with bulk dietary fiber, it is used a great deal in natural weight loss diets. It provides dieters with a "negative caloric" effect due to the fact that while your body digests the celery it actually uses more calories during the process than what the celery contains.
