Tomato and its benefits
Updated: Apr 20
As many of you would think that tomato is classified as vegetable as it’s generally eaten and prepared like a vegetable. But it is actually the most famous fruit consumed in the world.
Tomatoes are rich in natural vitamins and minerals including vitamin c, a, k, b, b1, b2 calcium, iron, phosphorus and antioxidant lycopene, which has been linked to many health benefits, including reducing risk of heart disease and cancer and maintaining a healthy blood pressure. Not to mention those carotenoids, beta, Carotene Lutein Alpha Carotene which are key nutrients for growth, immune system function, and eye health.
One single medium-sized tomato has as much vitamin c as one half of a grapefruit. Moreover, consuming one medium-size of tomato could provide your body 1/3 amount of vitamin A you need in a day.
Especially for women, tomatoes are claimed to offer benefits for various skin concerns, such as acne or wrinkles. The antioxidants in tomatoes also help improve the health and appearance of your skin. Slices of tomato on your skin will leave your skin looking younger and moisture.
