Why Celery Should Be a Part of Your Daily Diet

Why Celery Should Be a Part of Your Daily Diet Posted on 8/13/2017 by Sundberg Office Celery is one of the best foods in the world for your teeth, even though it may not look like it. It not only helps to keep your mouth hydrated, it also helps your teeth stay clean. If you can make it a part of your daily diet, you can get a lot of benefits out of it. Your body will enjoy the extra fiber that comes from eating it, and your teeth will enjoy the extra cleaning they get whenever you eat it. Consider making it a side for your nightly meal, and see if you notice a difference.

Celery is Great for You

Celery is over 95% water. This means that when you eat it, your entire mouth gets a bath. This water is really nutritious and helps to keep your mouth very well hydrated when eaten regularly. Celery is also full of fiber. This means that your body is able to cleanse itself as you digest celery, ridding your body of cholesterol, toxins, excess fat, and even germs and bacteria that live in your digestive tract that can sometimes get out of whack. When you chew up celery, you also get dental benefits out of it. There are many fibers inside a rib of celery. Those fibers act very similar to what your toothbrush does. Each time you chew, it brushes more of the debris off of your teeth and leaves them cleaner than when you started. Because you are chewing, it also gets into some of the areas of your mouth that your toothbrush may struggle to reach. To find out other benefits of regularly eating celery, talk with your dentist. They can tell you what they love most about patients eating celery. Even one rib of celery at the end of dinner a day, can go a long way towards giving you a healthy smile.
