In this Nutrition Bite, we wanted to share a simple, scrumptious cancer-fighting recipe with you!

Below is our Homemade V8 Juice recipe. While every component of this delicious juice provides benefits to your health, a few of these ingredients shine particularly in their ability to prevent and fight cancer, like…

Tomatoes and red bell pepper: These are at the top of our list because they contain high levels of the antioxidant lycopene, especially tomatoes. Among the many ways lycopene has been shown to benefit human health, it has been shown to reduce and prevent oxidative damage to DNA, lipids and proteins. [1] 

These two ingredients also prevent cancer because they contain significant amounts of another antioxidant, vitamin C

Carrots: Carrots, in addition to red bell pepper and tomato (though to a lesser extent), combat cancer well because they contain beta-Carotene

This nutrient is a “provitamin” of vitamin A, meaning it gets converted to vitamin A once in your body. Vitamin A is crucial for  immune function, vision, maintaining organ health, and more!

Cayenne pepper: What makes this spice a cancer-fighting warrior is an antioxidant in it called “capsaicin.” As put by a 2016 study on its ability to combat cancer, capsaicin “exhibits strong anticancer activity through targeting multiple signaling pathways and cancer-associated genes in different tumor stages.” [2] 

With that fascinating new knowledge in mind, please enjoy this tasty recipe from our Plant-Based Made Easy Cookbook!

VegHealth’s Homemade V8 Juice Recipe

3 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 stalk celery
1 cucumber
2 carrots
1 red bell pepper
1⁄4 onion
Oregano, to taste
Basil, to taste
1⁄4 teaspoon himalayan sea salt 
Black pepper and cayenne, to taste 
3 drops stevia, optional

Ice, optional

  1. Juice the tomatoes, celery, cucumber in your juicer. 
  2. Add drops of stevia if you like a sweeter taste.
  3. Then add salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.
  4. Optional: Serve over ice (Please don’t try to “juice” it, as you may break your juicer!)

Note: If you like more “body” to your juice or you don’t have a juicer, you can blend everything in a Vitamix or high speed blender. Doing so will also retain the fiber from the ingredients, which is yet another cancer-fighting nutrient!
