Celery juice: miracle food or scam?

People care about their health and more and more, we are integrating better lifestyle habits into our daily lives.

We train, sometimes we take the stairs instead of the elevator, and above all, we try to eat better.
The strong trend is that of green juices, and more recently celery juice.

It was an American Anthony Willams who set the trend for celery juice. He told a blog about how celery juice consumption had marked his childhood, and how healthy he was.

Relayed by actress Gwyneth Paltrow, Williams' message toured the world, but also and above all, on social networks.

Anthony Williams now has more than 2 million fans on Instagram alone.
He hosts live information sessions, writes books, does radio. He calls himself the "medical medium", or "médium médical".

Reduce acne?

According to him, celery juice can prevent cancer, reduce cholesterol, acne problems, help with weight loss, among other things.

But is celery juice really healthy? According to trend-setting nutritionist Hubert Cormier, celery juice has few health benefits.

One thing that seems to work, but has no scientific basis, however, consuming this popular drink could reduce acne, according to thousands of testimonies.

Mode = high price?

Celery has also been in the news a lot because its price has been rising in recent months. The price of celery has even reached as high as $5 to $6 for one stalk.

To make 500 ml of celery juice daily, the dose recommended by Anthony Williams, you need a full stalk of celery passed through the juice extractor.

Fashion has certainly increased the demand for this food, but for Sylvain Charlebois, a professor of distribution and agri-food policy at Dalhousie University in Halifax, fashion does not really dictate food prices.

Rather, it is climate change and economic factors that influence their prices.
For experts, eating a lot more green vegetables, at least in half of the plate, at every meal, provides much more nutritional value.
