Fresh Tomato and Garlic juice [Recipe]

This juice is fresh, delicious and full of nutrients.

 

Garlic is well known for its bold flavor, but it does a lot more these days than just taste great or ward off vampires. Recent studies show its benefits range from keeping blood cells from becoming too sticky to interrupting prostate cancer cell growth and signaling breast cancer cell death in test tube and animal models.

Here’s a fun tip for when you are cooking with garlic: to boost garlic’s sulfur based antioxidants, cut it up and let sit on your cutting board while you prep the rest of your meal or juice. This allows the enzyme Allinase more time to interact with the Allium in garlic to create Allicin, the potent compound responsible for much of garlic’s health properties.

Ingredients

2 medium sized tomatoes

1-2 cloves garlic, peeled

20 fresh basil leaves
