There is a European proverb which says, When tomatoes turn red, doctors faces turn green. From this we can see that tomatoes and a healthy life are closely related. The red colour pigments in tomatoes contain Lycopene which has a powerful anti-oxidation effect that would slow down ageing.


Cooking the tomatoes can better release the benefits of lycopene.

Lycopene is fat soluble, so adding a little oil when cooking can enhance the absorption of lycopene by the body.

Eating tomatoes can also help prevent digestive system and prostate cancers.
