1/2 Cucumber

3 Roma tomato

2 celery stalks

A fist of basil

This week’s juice is close to my version of a natural V8. I love savory juices. The trick to doing a savory juice is to get something to season the juice; in this case it is basil. The health benefits of this juice include but are not limited to:

Vitamin K: helps build strengthen the calcium in your bones

Antioxidents: They are believed to protect cells from free radicals, harmful oxygen molecules thought to damage cells that result in cancer.

High Lycopene: Blood circulation, lower high blood pressure, cancer prevention

Potassium: This mineral is required for keeping heart, brain, kidney, muscle tissues and other important organs of human body in good condition

Vitamin C: A healthy dose of vitamin C will protect your body from infection and maintain healthy bones and teeth, as well as quicken the body's ability to repair wounds.

Happy Juicing!!
