BEAUTY BENEFITS OF CELERY:
Celery is in rich vitamin K with a high water content which works to brighten your skin by reducing darkness from under your eyes, dullness and helping to keep skin cells plump. It also contains apiuman, a polysaccharide which provides anti-inflammatory benefits while silica strengthens your nails, encouraging healthy growth. Celery is also an alkalizing vegetable, meaning it helps to decrease acidity in your body and restore balance.
All of celery is edible! Commonly used for its petiole (stalk), the leaves of celery are also full of nutrients. Use celery in soups, stews or salads.
Choose celery that looks crisp and crunchy. To regrow celery from scraps, chop the base of the celery about 10cm from the end and place it in a dish of water in a sunny area. After around three weeks you can transplant it into the garden.
