Celery root or celeriac is a root vegetable with a wide range of health benefits. For one thing, it’s abundant in fiber, potassium, magnesium and vitamin B6, which makes it extremely suitable for any weight loss program because it’s low in calories, but high in essential nutrients. It also contains certain phytochemicals called phthalides, which can successfully reduce high blood pressure and related issues.
Lemon, on the other hand, is abundant in flavonoids, which have strong antioxidant and cancer fighting properties. The numerous medicinal properties of this citrus fruit come from the many nutrients it contains including vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus and protein. A number of studies have confirmed that lemon can prevent diabetes, constipation, high blood pressure, fever, indigestion and many other problems, along with improving your skin, hair, and tooth health.
