Celery for bones

03-Celery-BoneFoods-That-Look-Like-Body-Parts-1Long, lean stalks of celery look just like bones—and they’re good for them, too. Celery is a great source of silicon, which is part of the molecular structure that gives bones their strength. Bones are 23 percent sodium, and so is celery. Celery also has blood pressure reducing properties. It contains active phthalides, which relax the muscles of the arteries that regulate blood pressure so the vessels dilate, causing blood pressure to drop. Since it’s low in calories and high in fiber, it’s good to include celery in your diet. I cook with the outer stalks and keep the small, tender, centers in a baggie in the fridge for snacking.

    Which works better strengthening bone juicing or eating it raw.

      It’s generally recommended to eat the fruits or vegetables rather than juicing them so you get the fiber as well.

    Thanks for the info you give us on things like this. It helps me be more aware of what we all should be eating oppose to what we eat that is bad for us. And it’s funny Jenny. I use the dark green outer part for recipes and use the heart and core for snacking as well. Just like most fresh veggies I can eat raw. I can eat celery by itself. I also like snacking on cabbage, lettuce and green bell pepper…Yum!…
