Eating Tomatoes Reduce Heart Disease


Below are some of the benefits of eating tomatoes

Anti cancer

Research shows that eating enough of tomatoes can help to reduce the risk of certain cancers such as stomach, lung and prostrate cancers. The cancer fighting substance in tomatoes is said to be lycopene which is said to be responsible for the red color. Cooking tomatoes help to break down and release lycopene from tomatoes.

Protect against blood clots

Blood clotting is known as thrombosis and drinking like eight ounces of low-sodium tomato juice daily can help to reduce the risk of blood clotting. 

Reduce blood level of TNF-alpha

TNF-alpha causes inflammation. High concentration of TNF-alpha has been found in individuals with diseases such as cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease and Alzheimer. However, drinking a glass cup of tomato juice daily has been found to reduce TNF-alpha immensely.

Reduce heart disease

Eating like eight to ten serving of tomato is found to reduce the risk of contracting cardiovascular diseases by twenty nine percent. This is possible because tomatoes contain nutrients such as folate, niacin, lycopene, vitamin A, B, C among others that are known to lower the risk of heart disease.
Tomato also helps to ward off diseases such as diabetes and atherosclerosis.
