Eating Cooked Tomatoes Every Day Could Reduce Risk Of Heart Disease

Cooked tomatoes or have undergone a process of heating proved to have better health benefits than fresh tomatoes. Recent research has shown, one or two tablespoons of fresh tomato sauce can lower the risk of heart disease.

Research involves 20 men as participants. Half of them were given food that is accompanied with a tomato sauce, while the other group did not.

Experiments were carried out based on the theory that 80 grams of tomato sauce could reduce the adverse effects of high-fat foods located along the blood vessels. The tomato sauce also helps prevent endothelial dysfunction (a condition that triggers atherosclerosis, or clogging fat in the arteries).

The key is in lycopene, an antioxidant that gives the red color in tomatoes. Lycopene content will rise when tomatoes are cooked or through a heating process.
