Health Benefits of Tomato Juice

Lycopene is the phytochemical that sets tomato’s and other red fruits and vegetables apart from the rest. A strong antioxidant, lycopene has been shown to prevent cancer and reduce both the risk of stroke and metabolic diseases. According to The Times, American’s receive more than 80% of lycopene from tomatoes.

7What’s in Natalie’s Tomato Juice?

Squeezed fresh, pure tomato juice and a splash of lemon juice. That’s it. No Preservatives. No Hidden Ingredients. No Added Salt.

What about other tomato juices?

Many tomato juices on the market contain added sodium, flavor packs and preservatives. An 8-ounce serving with added salt can have up to 670 mg of sodium; 28% of a person’s daily allowance. These juices can remain on grocery shelves for up two years which means they will contain less than half of the nutrients of a fresh squeezed tomato. Furthermore, the preservatives in these juices tend to do more harm to the body than the small amount of nutrients left in the drink are doing good.

How does drinking Natalie’s affect me?

Choosing a squeezed fresh tomato juice means you will be gaining the utmost nutrition. Benefits include aiding in digestion, lowering cholesterol, anti-inflammatory effects, antioxidants, bone density support, detoxification, blood clotting prevention, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.

When should I drink tomato juice?

Anytime! But it also makes for a great post-workout drink. It’s also a great breakfast option. If you are having a fruit salad with your breakfast, opt for a tomato juice so you ensure you are receiving a healthy balance of macronutrients for your morning meal. Oh, and how about a healthy Blood Mary for a Sunday Brunch? It’s also great as a quick and light option between meals.
