Surprising health benefits of the tomato


Tomato benefits
• Beta-carotene in tomatoes helps protect against sun damage!
The lycopene in tomatoes also helps make the skin less sensitive to UV light damage (which normally causes wrinkles and fine lines).


• Tomatoes helps improve your vision. The vitamin A in tomatoes help prevent night blindness and can help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a serious  irreversible eye condition.


• Tomatoes are rich in Vitamin K and Calcium, two minerals that are essential in bone strengthening and repair! Lycopene in tomatoes has also been shown to improve bone mass.


• The mineral Chromium is abundant in the tomato. It helps to maintain normal blood sugar and insulin levels, and helps support normal cholesterol levels.




• Bioflavonoids and carotenoids  (known anti- inflammatory agents) are abundant in the tomato, and can reduce chronic pain (arthritis, back pain, etc.).
Combating inflammation by eating foods high in these substances is an excellent way to fight chronic pain.
