Juicing celery removes the fiber content, which is one of the many benefits of consuming the vegetable. Fiber is crucial for digestive health, as it aids in maintaining regular bowel movements and promoting a healthy gut. When you juice celery, you extract the liquid, leaving behind the fibrous pulp.
When you drink celery juice it does still provides some of the vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in the whole celery stalk, but the absence of fiber alters how the body processes the nutrients. Fiber helps slow down the absorption of sugars, supports satiety, and contributes to a feeling of fullness. Without fiber, the juice may lead to a quicker spike in blood sugar levels.
While dietary fiber is not an antioxidant itself, it does provide an antioxidant effect based on the polyphenol compounds bound up in the fiber. These then pass through the stomach in tact and are released in the gut to function as antioxidants in the body. These polyphenol compounds get removed with the fiber pulp when juicing.
A great alternative to juicing celery is eating fresh organic celery. Fresh is always better. Make a celery smoothie, or use our organic freeze-dried celery powder. It is equivalent to eating fresh organic celery. It’s freeze-dried, which is a gentle drying process that retains the maximum amount of nutrition.
