Dr. William Li is featured on the Bulletproof Blog discussing the science behind the celery juice trend. He said, “Celery contains a bioactive compound called apigenin that could help with stomach inflammation. In a 2013 study, the rat-sized dose of apigenin was equivalent to the amount found in 357 grams of celery, which is about 3.5 cups of chopped celery for humans.” Dr. Li also discussed how in mouse studies, apigenin was also shown to reduce the growth of breast cancer. But ultimately, he concludes celery isn’t really higher in bioactives than any other vegetable. He recommends combining it with other veggies for more benefits.
