Celery Juice>>>Raw and Living Food

Celery is high in magnesium, iron and chlorophyll, which is an excellent blood builder and is one of the richest sources of organic sodium. Excellent for those who enjoy vigorous workouts, maintaining valuable body fluid and electrolytes.

Celery juice is a superb nerve tonic. Celery juice alone tastes a little bitter and is usually mixed with carrots or apples.

Great for adding a salty taste to vegetable juices. Do you have a headache? Drink a glass of celery juice. Even the ancient Greeks used celery for the universal problem of headaches. Do you live in the air-polluted inner city? Celery/apple juice is able to cleanse the body of carbon dioxide. Were you thinking of buying an air conditioner? Celery juice cools down the body and is great for hot weather. Are you on a diet and craving a Snickers bar? Celery juice helps curb the craving for sweets. Do you have a problem with muscle cramps and fatigue during workouts? The potassium/sodium balance in celery juice will be a great asset. Always leave the celery leaves on for juicing, but juice the celery last because it is stringy and clogs the juice machine.

Look for firm, solid stocks with bright green leaves.

Second, try some "green lemonade".

Here's how:

You'll need a juicer for this one. Juice a 1/2 head of romaine lettuce, 2 celery stalks, 1 apple, 5 leaves of kale and 1 whole lemon. The apple and lemon add a sweet zing and make this a delicious and easy way to get your greens.
