Lycopene is the standard prostate component and when it disappears it can be considered that serious changes have occurred.
Lycopene also prevents the initial stage of cervical cancer, dysplasia (cervical cancer).

Fresh tomatoes have the least lycopene!
As the degree of thermal treatment increases, it has more and more have lycopens.

Several lines of evidence suggest that oxidative alteration of harmful LDL (low density lipoproteins) cholesterol damages the artery wall and contributes to the emergence of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Likopen, alone or in combination with other natural antioxidants, blocks the oxidation of LDL cholesterol.
It has been discovered that lycopene prevents the formation of oxidized LDL cholesterol, which is a key factor in the development of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease

3.Preserves the body of "new compounds"


Special hazards to our body are caused by additives or "flavor enhancers", which are added to various processed and cooked foods.

One of them is monosodium glutamate (known as MSG) - a silent brain cell destroyer and hormonal balances of the body.

Likopen in this case comes as Rescue because it protects the attacked cells, eliminating the effects of harmful substances.

4.Tomato preserves vision

Use it in to all ways, but the facts about cooked tomatoes should not be neglected( many more lycopene ).

It's a green light for pizza, spaghetti and all others products of cooked tomatoes or

you make a vegan combination (integral paste, organic food without meat, fish and eggs and will get a health bomb ).

And a good appetite.

until next time, big greeting
