Why You Should Eat Tomatillos

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

The tomatillo plant produces little globular fruits that are covered in a husk. Because the fruit resembled a small tomato, European explorers gave it the name tomatillo. The brown husk of the tomatillo crinkles as it grows, similar to a Japanese lantern texture, and eventually breaks off as it ripens.

The botanical name for tomatillo is Physalis philadelphica. In the southern areas of Mexico, where it originated, it is also known as the Mexican husk tomato. There are also various tomatillo types, including the Rio Grande verde, pineapple tomatillo, and purple de milpa. The flavor, color, and size of tomatillos vary. For instance, the pineapple tomatillo has a bit of pineapple taste and comes in yellow.

The health advantages of tomatillos include improving digestion, alleviating strep throat, mumps, colds, and influenza, fighting cancer, treating ringworms, strengthening the immunity, decreasing weight and giving energy reserves, reducing blood pressure, and promoting heart health.

Treats Asthma

Asthma is a long-term respiratory condition that becomes worse when you're agitated or exposed to some allergens. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to the question of what causes asthma, although dust, pollen, mites, and other allergens may all cause symptoms. The exact cause of asthma is unclear, but eating tomatillos seem to shorten the asthma attacks duration or reduce the onset of episodes.

Treats Ringworms

An infection of the skin known as ringworm is caused by fungal organisms and is not parasitic. Ringworm is not only bothersome, but it may also lead to a variety of complications if left untreated. Because of its anti-mycotic characteristics, tomatillo may be used to make natural remedies for ringworms.

Good for Strep Throat

People of all ages get strep throat, which is caused by bacteria, and it may cause inflammation and pain in the throat. The Streptococcus bacterium causes this ailment, which may readily transfer from one person to another. Tomatillo contains antibacterial qualities that may destroy Streptococcus bacteria, and its anti-inflammatory characteristics help reduce throat inflammation.

Good for Eyes

Tomatillos are abundant in Vitamin A, a nutrient essential for maintaining eye health. Beta-carotene, a vitamin A derivative, is also present in them. Beta-carotene is an antioxidant, preventing macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye problems. It is also better than Vitamin A in many ways, as it's a pro vitamin, which converts to Vitamin A when the body requires it.

Lowers Blood Pressure

Because of the potassium in tomatillos, they're an excellent source of relaxation-inducing vasodilation. Potassium dilates blood arteries and lowers stress on the cardiovascular system. This way, potassium helps ensure nutrients and blood are distributed evenly throughout the body. Tomatillos are high in dietary fiber, which aids in the regulation of LDL, hence improving heart health.
