Celery (half) is mainly water, but it is also a good source of dietary fibre. It makes an ideal companion for a dip or on a grazing platter. Celery makes a crunchy addition to salads and can also be added to soups and casseroles.
Celery is a very good source of fibre, potassium, sodium, phosphorus and calcium. It provides a moderate source of vitamin C as well as being a good source of vitamin A.

All of those support a healthy digestive tract and keep you regular.
