Is celery good for inflammation?
People with inflammatory problems ask me all the time. Is celery good for inflammation? The answer is definitely yes. Celery has many healing properties but the fact that it can reduce inflammation is a huge bonus. Celery is good for inflammation for several reasons. Here are some reasons below.
Alkalinity: Celery’s pH balance is alkaline. Alkaline foods are highly beneficial for anyone with inflammation. Eating too much foods that are acidic can cause inflammation.
People around the world, Americans especially eat too much acidic meals thus causing inflammatory problems. Inflammation can appear anywhere throughout the body, especially the skin. By substituting acidic foods with alkaline foods, healing should start to manifest. And inflammation should start to go away.
Psoralens: Found in many vegetables, psoralens are a UV absorbent. Meaning that it can assists the body is absorbing sunlight. Yes to much sunlight is bad, but not enough sunlight is bad too. Are bodies need sunlight for many reasons including vitamin D. We get a lot of vitamin D from the sunlight, more so than from cow milk. Vitamin D helps with calcium adsorption, which we all know calcium is needed for our bones and all our organs. Our skin being the largest organ would avail the most.
Staying too long in the sun can be hazardous. Therefore we can only tolerate small amounts of the sunlight at a time. Psoralens allows the body to utilize UV absorbency efficiently. So the little time we do invest under the sun, the absorbancy rate is optimal and not lost in vain. Psoralens increase skin absorbency.
Scientists place psoralens in different medicines. These medicines are sometimes used to treat skin disorders like eczema and psoriasis. But by eating plenty of psoralen contained foods, you begin to address the inflammation problem directly and without the pharmaceutical middle man.
High Fiber: The fiber present in celery is ideal for the body. This high fiber factor means that it can reduce high cholesterol. High amounts of cholesterol are found in patients with inflammation. By reducing cholesterol you reduce inflammation.
Medications are not always needed to remove cholesterol. Sometimes eating a plentiful amount of green vegetables is enough to lower cholesterol levels back to normal and therefore reducing inflammation all together
