I have been starting my mornings with a lemon detox drink of water with a squeeze of fresh lemon, which I recommended to you. If you do that and want to start adding celery juice, it is best to wait at least a half hour first. This small wait is also important if you had plain water first as well to keep from diluting those valuable nutrients in the celery juice. What I am saying is to get the juicer out first to make your celery juice cocktail before coffee and sitting down to breakfast if you hope to really benefit.
I started drinking celery juice for its benefits as a simple test.
