Apple and Celery Juice Benefits
Apple and celery juice is a healthy drink. The sweet and sour combination of ingredients makes a stimulating drink supported by nutritional elements.
Our recipe stands out for its lemon and mint that add zest and coolness. It’ll have you sipping healthy calories in your quest to combat the summer heat.
Apple juice is high in polyphenols and may reduce the risk of heart attacks.
One experiment showed how it inhibits LDL oxidation. The oxidation of lipids and proteins is a precursor to oxidized cholesterol (when cholesterol breaks down).
As cholesterol deposits cake the artery walls, they pose the risk of developing clogged arteries (atherosclerosis) and high blood pressure. Drinking apple juice could act against this and promote your heart health.
2. Fights High Blood Pressure
Celery juice, too, has an impressive nutrient profile. It’s rich in electrolytes and vitamins A, C, and K.
It also has antihypertensive properties. One 2019 study showed a notable decrease in blood pressure after administering celery juice to people with hypertension.
It even proved more effective than a low-sodium diet. So drinking celery juice from time to time could be a smart way to lower the risk of hypertension.
3. Cognitive Health
Adding spearmint makes this drink more refreshing. It may enhance cognitive health, too, boosting your mood and mind.
4. Less Sugar
You can also enjoy sugar in moderation. Our apple celery juice recipe contains 13% of the recommended daily added sugar intake per serving.
Therefore, it’s a sweet but light treat that doesn’t overdo it.
How to Juice Apples and Celery
It’s easy and takes only a few minutes to juice apples and celery.
Start by washing the apples thoroughly before coring and cutting them into chunk-sized pieces. You don’t have to peel them when juicing.
Run them through a juicer funnel and collect the liquid in a pitcher. Then, pour apple juice through a fine-mesh sieve to obtain clear juice.
