The composition of tomatoes contains a large number of nutrients. In particular, these are vitamins C and E, they are also rich in antioxidants. Having a vegetable on your menu can improve your skin condition while reducing your risk of certain types of cancer. The expert explained that many people think that the maximum benefits from tomatoes can be obtained if they are eaten raw. However, the effect of lycopene in tomatoes can be enhanced by heat treatment and the use of oil. Although vitamin C is destroyed when exposed to high temperatures, this does not make the vegetable less useful.
If a person eats raw tomatoes, it is better not to remove the skin, because there you can also find elements important for the body. At the same time, the blogger urged to stop eating tomatoes on an empty stomach.
