The properties of tomato and cardiovascular health

tomatoes propertiesDiscuss the benefits of the tomato is a cliche, because a greater or lesser extent we all know what are the virtues of this extraordinary food. In our blog we have reviewed on several occasions, and we know for example that is useful for the digestive system, lowers cholesterol and has a direct benefit on the circulatory system.

In the latter we focus today, as an investigation of Molecular Nutrition & Food Research Laboratory worked with mice, finding that the tomato is very good for blood health.

As say the researchers behind this study, the reduction of bad cholesterol from the blood by the tomato had a direct effect on the health of the mice, which was greatly reduced risk of cardiovascular disease.
