Drink Your Way to a Healthy Heart
The humble tomato boasts a myriad of benefits that you may not be aware of. A single fruit (that’s right – tomato is a fruit!) delivers over 28 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin C. This nutrient keeps your skin young and firm, supports immune health, and fights free radical damage. Tomatoes are also packed with vitamin A, vitamin K, folate, potassium, choline, and antioxidants.
Due to its high potassium levels, this fruit may lower your risk of heart disease and high blood pressure. Folate, a B vitamin in tomatoes, promotes cardiovascular health by regulating homocysteine. When produced in excess, this amino acid can trigger strokes and heart attacks.
Furthermore, a diet rich in tomatoes is your best defenses against cataracts and vision problems. Lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene, and beta-carotene are all potent antioxidants that fight age-related macular degeneration and keep your eyes healthy. These nutrients also scavenge oxidative stress, which is a major contributing factor to aging and chronic illnesses.
The fiber in tomatoes promotes regularity and may prevent constipation. Plus, it keeps your blood sugar levels within normal limits, leading to a lower risk of diabetes and insulin resistance. Lycopene, another key nutrient, has been shown effective against atherosclerosis, blood clotting disorders, and high cholesterol.
Get Leaner and Healthier Effortlessly
Need one more reason to try this refreshing detox water recipe? We’ve added cucumbers to the mix to make it healthier and more hydrating.
Cucumbers are chock-full of fiber, calcium, and anti-inflammatory compounds like fisetin and cucurbitacins. They also contain lignans, a class of antioxidants that ward off prostate, ovarian, and breast cancers.
In clinical trials, cucumbers have been shown to improve glycemic control and relieve diabetes symptoms. On top of that, these veggies have a low glycemic index, making them ideal for dieters. Due to their anti-inflammatory properties, they may help relieve pain and prevent brain damage.
This healthful mix will make it easier to flush out toxins and lose stubborn fat. It’s filling and hydrating, keeping you full for hours. Plus, you’ll love its light, refreshing flavor!
