Consumption of unsalted tomato juice helps lower blood pressure and LDL cholesterol reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
The finding was based on a survey of 184 male and 297 females who consumed unsalted tomato juice for a year. Systolic blood pressure for 94 participants dropped from 141.2 to 137.00 mmHG and diastolic blood pressure from 83.3 to 80.9. LDL cholesterol levels in 125 participants decreased from 155.- to 149.9 mg/dL. These results were applicable for both men and women.
The researchers said that this is the first known study to find out the effects of tomato consumption on cardiovascular disease over a one-year time frame and a wide range of participants.Tomatoes contain Vitamin A, calcium, carotenoid, gamma-aminobutyric acid that is helpful in prevention of cardiovascular disease.
