All About Tomatoes


Technically a fruit, tomatoes are often considered a vegetable. Either way, they are a great source of lycopene, a plant compound that has been linked to heart health, cancer prevention and protection against sunburns. Lycopene is most abundant in the skin of ripe tomatoes and generally, the redder the tomato, the more lycopene it contains. But that’s not all, this delicious fruit is also full of Vitamin C (antioxidant), Potassium (for blood pressure control and cardiovascular health), Vitamin K1 (for bone health) and so much more.
