10 Health Benefits from Eating Tomatoes

1. Tomatoes are good for your skin.

Tomatoes contain a high level of lycopene, which is a substance that is
used in some of the more pricy facial cleansers that are available for
purchase over-the-c
ounter.
If you
want to try tomatoes for skin care, you need to start with about eight
to twelve tomatoes. Peel the tomatoes and then place the skin on your
face with inside of the tomato touching your skin.
Leave the
tomatoes on your face for a minimum of ten minutes, then wash. Your face
will feel clean and shiny. Some redness may occur, but should fade with
time.

2. Tomatoes help prevent several types of cancer.

A number of studies have been conducted that indicate that the high
levels of lycopene in tomatoes works to reduce your chances of
developing prostate, colorectal and stomach cancer.
Lycopene is a
natural antioxidant that works effectively to slow the growth of
cancerous cells. Cooked tomatoes produce even more lycopene, so go ahead
and cook up a batch of your mom’s famous tomato soup.

3. Tomatoes help maintain strong bones.

Tomatoes contain a considerable amount of calcium and Vitamin K. Both
of these nutrients are essential in strengthening and performing minor
repairs on the bones as well as the bone tissue.

4. Tomatoes help repair damage caused by smoking.

No, eating tomatoes is not the most recent fad to help you quit
smoking. However, tomatoes can reduce the amount of damaged done to your
body by smoking cigarettes.
Tomatoes contain coumaric acid and
chlorogenic acid that work to protect the body from carcinogens that are
produced from cigarette smoke.

5. Tomatoes provide essential antioxidants.

Tomatoes contain a great deal of Vitamin A and Vitamin C. This is
primarily because these vitamins and beta-carotene work as antioxidants
to neutralize harmful free radicals in the blood.
Free radicals in
the blood stream are dangerous because it may lead to cell damage.
Remember, the redder the tomato you eat is, the more beta-carotene it
contains. In addition, you also want to keep in mind that cooking
destroys the Vitamin C, so for these benefits, the tomatoes need to be
eaten raw.

6. Tomatoes are good for your heart.


Because of the Vitamin B and potassium in tomatoes, they are effective
in reducing cholesterol levels and lowering blood pressure. Therefore,
by including tomatoes in your regular balanced diet you can effectively
prevent heart attacks, strokes as well as many other heart related
problems that may threaten your life.

7. Tomatoes are good for your hair.

The Vitamin A in tomatoes works perfectly to keep your hair shiny and
strong. In addition, it also does wonders for your eyes, skin, bones and
teeth.

8. Tomatoes are good for your kidneys.

Adding tomatoes without seeds to your diet has been proven in some studies to reduce the risk of kidney stones.

9. Tomatoes are good for your eyes.

The Vitamin A found in tomatoes is fantastic for improving your vision.
In addition, eating tomatoes is one of the best foods to eat to prevent
the development of night blindness.

10. Tomatoes are good for diabetics.

Tomatoes are packed full of the valuable mineral known as chromium. It
works effectively to help diabetics keep their blood sugar levels under
better control.
