Celery for pain

Did you know that celery fights inflammation? I just had a virgin blood mary for lunch. I LOVE the spicy V8 juice with a bunch of celery for a yummy treat.  If you’re thinking it’d be way better with some voddy, i feel the same way.

“we’ve seen research showing the ability of celery juice and celery extracts to lower the activity of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha), as well as the activity of nuclear factor kappa B (NF-kB). Decreased levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin 1B (IL-1B) and interleukin 8 (IL-8) have also been seen in these studies. All of these four messaging molecules play a key role in the body’s inflammatory responses, and keeping them in check is an important step in the prevention of unwanted inflammation.”

Here’s some good info on celery.  Click the link.
