Celery does provide a healthy dose of fiber, as well as vitamins C and K and potassium, and it is a very low-calorie snack. A search for #CeleryJuice on Instagram returns over 35,000 posts, not including all the variations on the hashtag. Some social media users say that drinking celery juice has cured them of mental health problems and infertility. Others credit it with healing eczema that nothing else could cure. One website even claims that it can prevent cancer. Celery should be eaten as part of a balanced and inclusive diet and that everyone should be wary of celebrity-endorsed food trends.
