Scientists from the University of Adelaide in Australia have found that drinking tomato juice helps reduce cholesterol in human blood. They noted that this is due to the antioxidant lycopene it contains.

Lycopene is believed to not only effectively reduce the level of bad cholesterol in the blood, but also reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. This  The antioxidant in tomato juice suppresses the oxidation of cholesterol, which is important for preventing the formation of atherosclerotic plaques.

At the same time, experts emphasized that lycopene is best absorbed when drinking juice if you drink it on an empty stomach. According to them, this enhances its positive effect on cholesterol metabolism.

In addition to antioxidants, tomato juice is a source of potassium, which is necessary for normalizing blood pressure and improving the functioning of the heart and blood vessels.
