Who cares about celery?

Our diet greatly influences our overall health. Eating healthier can lead to a longer life and lower risk of certain diseases. Eating healthier may also help to reduce inflammation in the body.

Celery is widely recognized as being one of the healthiest snack options out there, but how many of us actually go out of our way to enjoy it as such? Maybe we should. Celery is mainly made up of water, but it also contains beneficial vitamins and minerals that can help improve your overall health.

What's in celery?

One of the many beneficial vitamins that celery contains is Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that works to protect your blood vessels, organs, and cells from damage. Severe damage can cause individual cell death, further promoting inflammation in the body.

Celery also contains an abundance of flavonoids, which are various compounds found naturally in many fruits and vegetables that can help with a variety of health problems. Flavonoids contain anti-inflammatory properties that work to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

There are at least 10 other antioxidants found in celery, all of which can benefit your health in different ways. Interestingly enough, all of these nutrients can be found in a single stalk of celery.

Does it actually help fight inflammation?

Adding celery to your daily diet may help to reduce inflammation in the body. Eating healthier in general may help as well. Next time you're looking for a quick snack, pick up some celery!
