Months ago, the world decided celery is like the food equivalent of a crystal: all-healing, shrouded in mystery, and guaranteed to get you a 10 percent increase in Instagram likes. According to celebrities (like Kim Kardashian) and a host of health professionals (including the unlicensed "Medical Medium" Anthony William), the veggie can lower inflammation, support weight loss, heal digestion, reduce bloating, and help with psoriasis and eczema. To that camp, celery carries magical minerals that target and fight those issues.
Batting for the other team, you've got doctors and registered dietitians claiming you could get the same benefits from just drinking a sh*t-ton of water. Good Housekeeping Institute Nutrition Director and registered dietitian Jaclyn London calls the whole thing "pseudo-science."
Regardless, people are still lapping it up (like, seriously, literally and figuratively), buying juicers to do the deed or enlisting local health and juice stories to do the dirty work for them. If you've experimented, you know that celery isn't cheap, ergo celery juice—which requires a whole bunch of celery to make, can cost you a pretty penny. At home, the 16 ounces that the Medical Medium recommends you drink daily can cost around $4. At a grocery store or juice spot, it's been known to retail as high as $12 or $13.
So, what's a pseudo-science loving person to do? Head to Costco, of course!
Instagrammer @CostcoBuys recently revealed the big box store has started to sell a six-pack of Daily Greens celery juice (called Daily Celery, natch) for $14. That's only a little more than $2 per bottle, which is a steal. Every bottle has 12 ounces of celery juice that's been spiked with a little lemon. The bottles touts benefits like: hydration, energy, electrolytes, potassium, and vitamins.
If getting your tush off the couch and into a Costco feels like A LOT, know that Amazon also sells an 18-pack of celery juice—albeit for a lot more moolah. The juice bundles comes to $150, $8 a pop, which is still less than some juice shops might charge.
