Small red fruits packed with juicy flavors, the tomato is a staple in many cuisines around the world. While there are several types of tomatoes and colors, they’re usually consumed in the same way, including raw and as an ingredient in many dishes – sauces, salads, and drinks. Tomatoes are widely known for their outstanding antioxidant content, including their oftentimes-rich concentration of lycopene. Researchers have recently found an important connection between lycopene, its antioxidant properties, and bone health. Fresh tomatoes and tomato extracts have also been shown to help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides.
