Pople tend to seek medical attention for the cardiovascular problems which are caused majorly by clogging of the blood vessels. They forget the most available and inexpensive ways to prevent the arteries from clogging and maintaining a healthy heart. The use of tomatoes has great significance in the circulatory system. The red color in the tomatoes is due to an antioxidant, carotenoid lycopene, which prevents the hardening of the arteries. Also, carotenoid lycopene helps in the reduction of bad cholesterol oxidation and unclogging of arteries, thus reducing cases of atherosclerosis. Statistically, women with high levels of lycopene in the blood have soft arteries.
