The secret of tomatoes lays precisely in its color pigments related to that of carrots. The virtues of this great antioxidant have been demonstrated in hundreds of clinical trials. Scientists sustain it is enough to drink 2 glasses of tomato juice daily to take profit from the outstanding benefits of lycopene.
There are some of its effective therapies:

  1. fresh juice boosts sugar formation in the blood, acting as an excellent natural energizer when feeling exhausted
  2. contains antitoxic elements, protecting the liver and stimulating its activity
  3. fights negative effects of increased fat intake, otherwise rapidly absorbed by the body
  4. is an excellent remedy against sunburn: tomato slices applied on burned skin for 15 minutes decrease inflammation and accelerate regeneration; lycopene protects skin against bad UVs, reducing the risk of sunburn.

Even more important, it is proved that, by eating 2-4 servings of tomato (or tomato sauce/juice, if you prefer) per week, risk for prostate cancer is reduced by as much as 35%!

Lycopene? What is it?

What have in common tomato, watermelon and pink grapefruit? Yes, all are healthy and taste good, but, more then this, all are red. Responsible for this red color is Lycopene, a carotenoid that seems to be a valuable compound for a healthy diet. Tomato contains, per gram, more lycopene then any other vegetable or fruit.

Red tomato juice for pink health

Reviewer: Charun Chungates , 2009-03-29

Tomato blended, sieved and refrigerated. Cheaper than the canned gunk you get at six times the price. It costs me 30 rupees (60 c) to make eight glasses of tomato juice. It costs me 180 rupees ($3.60) to buy it canned. And the homemade stuff kicks its ass. I'm thinking of starting with oranges very soon...

Daily tomato
