Oddly enough, celery is pretty polarizing. One of my co-workers classified it as a "ghastly vegetable" while another said "celery can fall off the face of the earth."
Meanwhile, I'm over here thinking celery and peanut butter is pretty freakin' delicious, but whatever. To each their own.
There are some things about celery that aren't up for debate, and that's the health benefits you can get from the green veggie.
1. Celery supports bone strength
Celery contains a lot of vitamin K, which allows your bones to absorb calcium. This will strengthen your skeleton and give you better bone strength.
2. Celery helps your immune system
The high levels of vitamin C in celery can help improve your immune system, which in turn will help prevent and treat symptoms of the common cold and other illnesses.
3. Celery may help prevent certain cancers
According to different studies, celery contains cancer-fighting flavonoids as well as apigenin, both of which can help prevent certain types of cancers. Most commonly, celery can help prevent pancreatic cancer.
