Juice that is better cooked than raw
This juice is full of antioxidants, lowers bad cholesterol, detoxifies the body, prevents cancer – many also call it vegetable blood because of its color.
Of course, we are talking about tomato juice. If you want to take advantage of all its positive properties, the tomatoes must be organically grown. The best juice is the one you squeeze yourself, which has no unknown additives of dubious qualities. It is also very important to lightly heat the juice (up to approximately 70 degrees Celsius) because it is only at this temperature that lycopene starts to form, which even official medicine recognizes for its positive effects in fighting cancer. Lycopene is also the heart's best friend.

Let's look at 7 reasons why you should drink a glass of heated tomato juice every day:

1. Vitamins and minerals
Tomatoes have an above-average amount of vitamins A, K, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, and C, as well as potassium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus, folic acid, lutein, and, if the juice is slightly heated, lycopene. All of this strengthens the immune system.

2. Cancer prevention
Lycopene is an extremely powerful antioxidant that protects the body from free radicals. It has been particularly effective in lung cancer, breast cancer, cardiovascular diseases, atherosclerosis, and colorectal cancer (colon cancer). Tomato juice also inhibits and prevents prostate and pancreatic cancers. Research has shown that the risk of the mentioned cancers decreases by 20% if you drink one glass, and by 30% if you drink two glasses of tomato juice a day. Ideally, 20 minutes before a meal.

3. Protects vision and eye health
Heat-treated tomatoes are rich in beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. These are phytonutrients that prevent macular degeneration (a disease of the macula – the part of the retina at the back of the eye responsible for detailed vision).

4. Regulates digestion
Tomato juice is a natural antiseptic and can prevent diarrhea while also protecting against possible infections. In combination with spinach, it prevents constipation and soothes the intestines.

5. Lowers cholesterol
Tomato juice lowers the level of bad cholesterol in the blood by a third, thanks mainly to the B vitamins and niacin it contains.

6. Vitamin C
A lot of vitamin C is needed by patients, pregnant women, people after hard physical labor... If you want to maintain the positive effects of vitamin C, do not heat the juice above 36 degrees Celsius. Thus, you will have to decide: either you take advantage of the tomato's vitamin potential (cold juice), or you heat it slightly (lycopene starts to form only above 70 degrees).

7. Sulfur and chlorine
Tomatoes contain a lot of sulfur and chlorine, which stimulate the functioning of the liver and kidneys. They eliminate toxins, detoxify, and destroy harmful bacteria, fungi, and viruses.
