“Tomatoes are full of the antioxidant vitamin C and high concentrations of beta-carotene. Just one cup of fresh tomato will give you nearly 58% of the daily value for vitamin C, 22% of the daily value for vitamin A, and almost 8% of the daily value for fiber. Tomatoes are also rich in potassium, niacin, B6, and folate. A study in the Journal of Nutrition, found that women with the highest intake of lycopene-rich tomato-based foods had a significantly reduced risk of heart disease. It was found that as the women’s blood levels of lycopene increased, their risk for cardiovascular disease dropped.”
