Tomatoes – Nutrition, Health and Beauty Benefits

Health and beauty benefits of tomatoes

Do you want to learn the nutrition, health and beauty benefits of tomatoes? Firstly, tomatoes are actually a fruit. Eating tomatoes helps protect the skin through its photo-protective benefits. For example, tomatoes are high in lycopene, and beta-carotene helps protect the skin from UV damage, such as wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines. Cooking tomatoes actually increases lycopene absorption. In addition, tomatoes are also high in potassium, which helps keep your electrolytes in balance.
