Benefits of Tomatoes

Tomatoes have as many health benefits as they do cooking options. They supply the body with Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E, copper, potassium, niacin, folate, phosphorus, and manganese. They promote healthy skin, eyes, bones, heart, brain, and overall general good health and healing. They are a hydrating fruit, composed of 94% water. and can either be cooked or eaten raw. Cooking tomatoes is believed to make it easier for the body to break down the cell wall and digest the valuable Lycopene and other coveted antioxidants and nutrients inside.

Disclaimer:

  • For best results, fresh, organic foods are recommended.

  • Foods are most nutritious in their raw form, unless heating is required. 

  • Food sources are recommended over supplements, but in the event you must use supplements, be sure to purchase them from a reputable source. In the U.S., supplements are not regulated by the FDA.

  • "Everything in moderation" is a good rule of thumb. Don't shock your system by eating dozens of apples (or anything) in one day. A balanced, yet varied diet is the goal.  

  • As with medicine, there are no guarantees. Preventative steps can help prevent illness and possibly prolong lives, but there are many contributing factors and variables which can sometimes produce unexpected results. 

  • Do research and consult your physician before making any serious changes to your diet or taking supplements. Discuss any allergies or concerns you may have. If you are taking any prescriptions or medications, this is especially important.

  • The information presented here is based on my research and years of note-taking. What started as a short list of cures for friends and family has grown into a full and very complex database, yet is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of eating healthy foods. This list is a work in progress and by no means complete. My goal is to help people suffering from various ailments, with a secondary goal of spreading the news about the miraculous healing power of foods. Use this information as a launchpad into your new healthy life.
