Celeriac detox

For lunch today I went out to my dear kitchen garden to harvest some celeriac under the snow.

I use some warm water that I gently pour over the specimens that I want before I pick them.. The apples from our own produce I keep in the pantry as well as the apple juice on apples from our garden. I pick fresh chili from the plant that I keep indoors. The lemons and cucumbers are organic and bought from the store.

I mix all the ingredients together. From the celeriac I use roots, stems, everything – after that I have gently washed them from soil.
I topp the detox with psyllium seeds and chia seeds and some sea salt.

The taste wasn’t lovely, but this is a effective and deep detox full of nutrients and minerals that works to heal and protect your body:

Enjoy!

Health benefits of Celeriac

Celeriac is very low in calories. 100 g root holds just 42 calories, quite higher than that of leaf-celery. Its smooth flesh has some health benefiting plant-nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and dietary fiber

As that in carrot and other members of Apiaceae family vegetables, celeriac too contains many poly-acetylene anti-oxidants such as falcarinol, falcarindiol, panaxydiol, and methyl-falcarindiol.

Several research studies from scientists at  University of Newcastle at Tyne found that these compounds possess anti-cancer properties and, thereby, may offer protection from colon cancer and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

Celeriac is very good source of vitamin K. 100 g root provides about 41 µg or 34% of recommended daily intake. Vitamin-K improve bone mineralization by promoting osteotrophic activity in the bones. Research studies suggest that it also has established role in Alzheimer’s disease patients by limiting neuronal damage in the brain.

The root is a very good source of some of the essential minerals such as phosphorus, iron, calcium, copper, and manganese. Phosphorus is required for cell metabolism, maintaining blood buffer system, bone and teeth formation. Copper helps restore immunity, prevents anemia, and required for bone metabolism.

Further, it contains some of valuable B-complex vitamins such as pyridoxine, pantothenic acid, niacin, riboflavin, and thiamin. Fresh root also provides moderate amounts of vitamin C (8 mg/100 g).
