One stick of celery contains only half a calorie, water, fiber, sugar, and a small amount of protein and fat, Julie Upton, a board-certified dietitian, noted.
Celery contains more antioxidants, which suppresses inflammation in the body, she said.
Celery provides a powerful antioxidant cocktail with compounds like caffeic acid, luteolin, ferulic acid, and others, Upton said.
Antioxidants protect the body from oxidative processes, reduce the number of harmful lipids in the blood and reduce sugar levels.
Celery can be consumed raw and in the form of juice - the amount of benefits of the vegetable does not change, only in the form of juice it becomes more concentrated. As a crunchy snack, celery can help reduce weight by choosing it over chips or crackers.
