They gathered together women of different ages, weight and origin, and gave them one glass of tomato juice (250 ml) every day for two months.
The first evident change was significant weight loss, which happened due to fat deposit removal from the body, not fluids, as experts explained.
Scientists who conducted the experiment reveal that “The women who took part in this experiment did not change their eating habits or workout routines, but the results were visible in only a few days.”
Moreover, these women had their blood drawn at the beginning and the end of the experiment, and according to scientists’ claims. The results were — “significantly reduced cholesterol levels, along with increased levels of lycopene – an antioxidant in tomatoes, which offers a number of health benefits,”
The results of this experiment showed much more than anyone expected, namely, tomato offers numerous benefits for our health. A single glass of tomato juice every day strengthens your immune system, protects against heart disease, but also reduces the risk of developing cancer.
