Tomatoes & Chillies

Did you know that tomatoes contribute to the health of your skin, hair, & heart, & lower the risks of obesity? They’re an excellent source of Vitamin C and other antioxidants. They help fight against the formation of free radicals that are known to cause cancer. Tomatoes can lower the risks of having prostate, lung and stomach cancer. Although it is believed that tomatoes in a deep red colour contain an outstanding source of lycopene, that’s not always the case. Further research on this area is still highly needed.

Tomatoes are awesome because they are rich in beta-carotene. They are also excellent in reducing the risk of heart disease and keep your bones strong always. A tomato a day keeps the doctor away!
