Ever had that jittery feeling after a sugary treat? That’s your blood sugar spiking and then crashing.

But there’s a natural way to support your blood sugar levels to keep it balanced!

Introducing the celery lime juice, a simple drink packed with potential benefits!

Why celery lime juice?

Celery is a low-glycemic vegetable, which simply means it doesn’t cause significant spikes in your blood sugar.

It’s also a good source of fiber, which helps slow down digestion and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.

Limes add a burst of flavor, and are rich in vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps your body manage blood sugar fluctuations.

Let’s take a closer look at the blood sugar benefits of these ingredients:

  • Celery: Studies has suggested that compounds in celery leaves may help improve insulin sensitivity.
  • Lime: Vitamin C in limes may help in preventing blood sugar spikes and promote blood sugar metabolism.

  • Detoxification: Limes are known for their cleansing properties, aiding your body’s natural detoxification process.
  • Energy Boost: This refreshing drink boosts your energy naturally without the jittery feeling from sugary drinks.
