Squeezing Tomatoes May Be a Start for Better Health

By Tom Herrin

Looking for some ways to supplement all of the other things they do is generally the a mission of those who are pretty health conscious.  A lot of times, it may be some new magic exercise program or some great supplement, but a great fall-back is always food.  Choosing the right kinds of foods can make a huge difference, or impact, on almost anyone's health.  Finding that right combination of healthy foods and something they like can be be a formula for anyone.  One of those foods that may be on most menus, in some form or other, is tomatoes.  It can do a lot of positive things for health, even in forms other than fresh.

They Can Provide Some Great Nutrients

Tomatoes are one of the few foods that many people who need iron can and will eat.  They contain a measurable amount.  Many of the standard foods that are high in iron may have a strong flavor, some find them difficult to eat.  For those individuals, eating more tomatoes can provide some source of iron.  It can also supply good amounts of Vitamins A and C and potassium.  Vitamin K is one that can help control bleeding.

They May Be Good for Digestion

Tomatoes are somewhat unusual in that they have the ability to prevent both constipation and diarrhea.  They have useful fiber.  They can help to remove toxins from the body as well and, therefore, can help to prevent jaundice.  It is generally believed that consuming even just one tomato per day can be a great help for digestion.

They Can Add Something Special to Meals

Most of us eat tomatoes, or tomato products, with our meals regularly without realizing it.  Anyone who has topped off something with ketchup has consumed tomatoes.  They are a food that can still maintain its healthy properties even after it has been cooked or changed into something else.  Most of us eat them with spaghetti or some other kind of noodles.  They are popular as a part of meatloaf or other similar dishes.  Who hasn't eaten them sliced on hamburgers or sandwiches?  The list may seem endless, but we can do ourselves a lot of good if we just eat more tomatoes.  It isn't that difficult.  You may want to consider it, especially if your focus is to be more health conscious in the new year.
