What's So Good About Tomatoes?

  • Low calorie fruit/vegetable: Tomatoes are extremely low in calories.One small tomato contains only 16 calories.
  • High fiber: Tomatoes are high in fibre, both soluble and insoluble, which is great for weight loss.
  • Tomatoes work against impotency and help increase the sperm count.
  • Tomatoes are powerful blood purifiers and clear up urinary tract infections.
  • They have anti oxidant properties as they are high sources of vitamin C and vitamin A. The Vitamin A especially wards off macular degeneration and improves eyesight.
  • A person who drinks 8 ounces of low sodium tomato juice a day, can prevent inflammatory diseases like osteoporosis and Alzheimer's.
  • Though tomatoes do have some natural sugars, they are still very low on the glycemic index. This means they will not have a significant effect on your blood sugar levels and that your body won't release insulin - a hormone that causes fat storage (and weight gain.)
  • Tomatoes are also very hydrating, due to their high water content that keep you feel full for long
