Default Tomato- The Super Food For Diabetics

Regardless of whether eaten uncooked or prepared, tomatoes are filled
with lycopene. This a strong substance that could reduce the danger of
most cancers (especially prostate cancer), cardiovascular disease, and
macular deterioration.

Like additional non-starchy fruit, tomatoes possess a low GI position.

One research in 2011 discovered that two hundred grams associated with
raw tomato (or regarding 1. 5 moderate tomatoes) every day reduced
bloodstream pressure in individuals with type two diabetes. Researchers
came to the conclusion tomato consumption may help reduce the cardio
risk that's related to type two diabetes.


I know this is an old post but tomatoes need to be cooked to make the most
of the lycopene.
