Benefits of Tomatoes
Tomatoes contain all four major carotenoids
Tomatoes contain all four major carotenoids: alpha and beta carotene, lutein, and lycopene. These carotenoids may have individual benefits, but also have synergy as a group (that is, they interact to provide health benefits). Heirloom tomatoes tend to produce more natural and flavorful fruits. Heirloom types are becoming increasingly popular, particularly among organic producers. They are now grown worldwide as the front line vegetable in line with onions, chili, potato..etc.
