1) Tomato juice
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which boosts the immune system, prevents blood clots, and reduces inflammation. Fresh pressed tomato juice makes it easier to consume a higher quantity of this daily essential antioxidant compound, lypscene. Add a teaspoon of flax oil to your juice to aid with the absorption of lycopene.
2) Beet Juice
Beetroot is highly concentrated with nitrates that the body converts into nitric oxide, which is a compound that works to stimulate blood flow. The nutrients within beetroots are most abundantly available in the form of fresh pressed juice. Drinking a single 16 ounces of beet juice a day can significantly benefit health.
3) Pomegranate juice
Pomegranate juice is full of antioxidants. It boosts the immune system, reduces blood pressure and improves cardiovascular health. Research has shown that pomegranate juice increases testosterone, which is essential, in both men and women, for creating a healthy sex drive. Testosterone also reduces stress and improves overall mood.
