It may be regarded as rabbit food but not only is celery low in calories and aid in daily water requirements but it is as good as delivering us potassium as it does a dose of powerful antioxidants in the form of Vitamin C, Vitamin B-6 and Vitamin A.  Meaning, extra doses will give us better skin, help keep our immune systems healthy, aid in better brain and nervous system function and improve digestion. Another great veggie to add to the daily list in the meantime, incorporate it into our latest yummy recipe.
