I’ve been reading about the benefits of celery juice on digestive health over the last few months and figured it was high time I make it myself at home. I had been purchasing store-bought green juice that contained celery but wanted to try a higher concentration of it to observe the full health benefits.

As it turns out, when celery juice is consumed alone, it has some powerful healing properties. I provide a recipe at the end of the post which includes other ingredients, but do keep in mind to unlock celery juice’s full benefits, you will want to consume straight celery juice.

Before we dive into my good digestion celery juice recipe, let’s discuss the science-y stuff.

Health Benefits of Celery Juice

  • Increases natural production of stomach acid to help you digest food.
  • Celery juice is a natural antibiotic and antiparasitic. For those of you who struggle with candida, SIBO, and/or leaky gut, regularly drinking celery juice each morning on an empty stomach can help kill off unwanted visitors.
  • Great source of Vitamins A, C, and K.
  • Contains electrolytes, magnesium and potassium, making it a very hydrating beverage.
  • Contains beta carotene, iron, and calcium.
  • Studies show celery juice may help lower blood pressure.
  • A natural antioxidant, celery juice helps prevent oxidative stress and may help reduce the harmful effects of chemotherapy.
  • The flavanoids in celery juice help act as a natural anti-inflammatory.
  • Celery juice may help lower cholesterol.
  • May help balance blood sugar (assuming you aren’t consuming lots of carbs and sugar in your diet).
  • Helps relieve constipation and therefore protects against digestive disorders when consumed regularly.
  • Makes your skin nice and glowy.

Putting it all together, celery juice is a nutrient-rich, very hydrating and potentially healing beverage, that helps your body achieve a good acid-base balance, replenishes vitamins and electrolytes that nourish your body and keep your digestive system running smoothly. How’s that for a celery juice testimonial?

We often overlook the importance of electrolytes, but our body needs them for so many different functions, including the natural ability to detox our liver, proper digestion, hormonal balance, quality sleep, and more. The fact that celery juice has a natural anti-microbial benefit makes it attractive to those with chronic gut conditions.

Does this mean celery juice will cure all your woes? Nay. It means it is one tool you can put in your wellness arsenal to help you along the way.

What Type of Juicer to Use

Before setting out on my juicing adventure, I did a bit of research on the best type of juicer to use. From what I gathered, you want to use a quality masticating juicer that can handle hearty vegetables like celery, carrots and beets, and can also handle fibrous leafy greens.

Which leads me to my next point:

Champion graciously sent me their Elite 4000 series juicer, which includes two types of augers so that you can juice fruit, vegetables, greens, and also make nut butter, frozen smoothie (kinda like nice cream), soups, sauces, and more. The juicer is super efficient and versatile!

I’m amazed at how well the juicer operated given the amount of produce I put through it in one juicing session. I definitely recommend it, whether you’re a juicing newbie or a seasoned juicer extraordinare.

SO now that we know the ins and outs of celery juice, let’s talk about this particular juice recipe. Remember, celery juice’s health properties are best observed when consumed alone so you can 200% JUST juice celery; however, I wanted to provide a simple recipe for a juice I’ve been making that tastes great, has natural anti-parasitic qualities, and is also beneficial for your health. In addition to celery, I like using cucumber, an orange, and half a lemon.

All things considered, this elixir wins you a gut-healthy beverage that aids your liver and also tastes very pleasant! And this is coming from someone who does not love the taste of green juice.

Important Notes:

  • Be sure you use all organic produce every time you juice. If you use produce that is not organic, you’ll be drinking a heavy concentration of pesticides, which messes with your gut health, hormones, and overall immune system, as they are toxic to your body.
  • Soak your organic produce in an apple cider vinegar bath for at least 15 minutes before juicing it. This will kill any parasites or bad bugs that may be dwelling on the produce.
  • For those of you with digestive issues, keep your juices as low in sugar as possible. Sugar, even coming from fruit and vegetables, feeds bacteria of all types, and this includes your bad bacteria. Don’t go crazy with apples, as they produce some mega tasty food for any parasites or bad bacteria living in your digestive system.
  • Make a big batch! Juicing is time-consuming, so make an evening of it! Buy more produce than you need so that you can make a huge batch and freeze what you won’t be drinking within a 5-day window.
  • If you have IBS, start by drinking only a small amount of celery juice (4 to 6 ounces), as large quantities could cause a flair – celery is high in fermentable carbohydrate and although the fiber is removed, it can still cause tummy troubles for those who are sensitive to FODMAPs.

You can get creative with you juice add-ins. I have also added a few carrots and a 2-inch nub of ginger to the recipe below for added flavor and health benefits. If you’re looking to detox, you can add fresh parsley and turmeric for a powerful detoxification elixir.

    If you use celery that’s not organic ok? It’s a must to soak all th veggies you use or just the celery? Will a magic bullet work to make celery jc. I don’t have a juicer. I’m excited to try this, as opposed to meds. Thanks.

        At my Sprouts grocery store in California organic is only about 40 cents more than conventional. I feel so bad for those here who have to pay 3X the normal price!

    What are the advantages of juicing the celery? I would think just eating a stalk or two would be just as helpful and give you the fiber you need every day. The inner ribs are easier to chew so I’ll use the outer ones for cooking and salads. No more having to buy another fancy machine.

      Sorry but if you eat the celery you are not going to get the same benefits not by a long shot. Also adding in ant other ingredient with the celery juice will dilute it so to speak and this will affect the sodium cluster crystals, in other words it will not be as effective as when taken alone and on an empty stomach allowing 30 minutes for best results before eating

      Hi Bonnie,

      If you can’t use vinegar, you can still soak the celery in filtered water. Many people don’t soak their vegetables at all prior to juicing…I just do it because I’m paranoid about unwanted bugs. So long as you give your produce a good rinse, you should be fine.

      Hi Christine,

      It’s certainly worth a try, but I think it will be far too pulpy to be drinkable…you may need to use a cheesecloth, nut bag, or fine mesh strainer to separate out the pulp. xo

        I use my Vitamix to juice but have to strain it through a juicing bag. It’s an extra step but it keeps you from having to own another appliance. It works really well!

    According to the Medical Medium, the purpose of juicing the celery is to get the benefits of the sodium cluster salts, and to get the best results you’re not supposed to drink anything but pure juice of the celery with nothing added to it, and on an empty stomach – you’re not supposed to mix in other fruit and vegetables. This recipe would still obvs be beneficial, but the above is not the Medical Medium protocol, as you’re not getting the full benefits of the sodium cluster salts by including other produce.

      I’m so confused should I mix collagen with my celery juicing or not. I’m reading a lot of articles saying do not mix collagen with celery? Says it feeds the purpose of the celery. Please let me know my wife has stomach issues.

        Hi Jack,

        I’m not a medical professional, BUT I would say if your wife has stomach issues, celery juice may exacerbate them. Has she tried a Low-FODMAP diet yet? If not, I would look into it and see if she may benefit from it. It really depends on what the stomach issue is. Just know that celery feeds both good AND bad bacteria, so if she has a bacterial overgrowth, she may want to steer clear of any fruits and vegetables that are high in FODMAPs. The collagen may help, though! I add it to my matcha lattes every morning…if she drinks tea, have her add it to tea.

    Help…. This gut topic is quite overwhelming. My son had SIBO a year ago. The first so called GI doc. (paid handsomely) missed it altogether. The second one found it and did the traditional 2 rounds of antibiotics.

    He did the at home breath test and shows SIBO is most probably gone. However, now he has some leaky gut issues .
    Luckily, he is a smart young man who is reading and doing his beat to heal himself. Due to COVID, he works from home and I see that despite eating “low fodmap” weight gain is not happening. I am worried sick. Reading the posts above. Is celery juice good or not? Much of the info. seems contradictory. What’s good for one persons gut might be the kiss of death for another. Any one out there that can offer clear suggestions. I would be very grateful. Thank you.
    Warm regards,
    Worried Mama

      Hi Renee,

      First off, my heart goes out to you and your son! I would strongly recommend avoiding anything raw until his gut issues are resolved. Fiber feeds all bacteria (both good and bad), and raw fruit and vegetables contain bacteria and parasites. While a normally functioning immune system can often irradicate the bad bugs, it exacerbates the gut issues in people who have some sort of overgrowth. This to say, do not give him celery juice. I also recommend you read this post: https://www.theroastedroot.net/how-i-healed-my-gut-part-one-my-gut-healing-protocol/ as it provides a list of supplements I take in order to heal leaky gut. I also highly recommend getting in touch with Dena (the RD I work with) if the issues continue to persist, as she will know what labs to run and also how to address any underlying issues. Either way, I hope your son is able to find relief from his symptoms!! Let me know if you have any other questions! Best of luck and much love! xoxoxox
