Soave Agricultural Group explores the health benefits of tomatoes, including the vegetable’s unique ability to prevent heart disease.
Soave Agricultural Group is proud to produce tomatoes of the highest quality. Grown under a maximum controlled environment at Great Northern Hydroponics, the tomatoes from Soave Agricultural Group provide a myriad of health benefits for consumers worldwide. In fact, tomatoes have been proven to provide cardiovascular support by reducing the risk of heart disease and promoting healthy heart function.
One way tomatoes support hearth health is by delivering a high dose of healthy antioxidants. At Soave Agricultural Group, the tomatoes are naturally packed with high levels of lycopene, a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants protect the cardiovascular system by supporting healthy oxygen circulation. These antioxidants include vitamin E and vitamin C and lycopene.
Improving Healthy Fats
Furthermore, eating tomatoes and tomato extracts can also improve the healthy profile of fats in the bloodstream. Specifically, tomato intake has been shown to result in decreased total cholesterol, decreased LDL cholesterol, and decreased triglyceride levels. They can also help decrease accumulation of cholesterol molecules inside white blood cells.
Preventing Platelet Clumps
Furthermore, the phytonutrients in tomatoes have also been shown to reduce the excessive clumping of platelet cells within the bloodstream which can cause dangerous blockages. This makes them a unique defense in reducing heart disease and improving overall heart health.
Tomatoes can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Consider tossing them in a fresh salad, slicing them on a sandwich or pizza, sautéing them in your favorite dish, or saucing them in pasta or soup. Even ketchup contains high levels of lycopene, but be sure to search for natural organic ketchup. Tomatoes can also be frozen or canned to be stored for future use.
No matter how you enjoy them, it is important to look for tomatoes of the highest quality. That is why at Soave Agricultural Group, we are dedicated to growing our vegetables in a maximum controlled environment free of harmful chemicals. The Soave management team is proud to be a HACCP-certified supplier compliant with a world-wide acknowledged and respected program.
