Health Benefits of Tomato-Based Foods

The health benefits of tomatoes are due to their source of vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin B 6, thiamine, and folate. They are also a good source of copper, magnesium, manganese, and phosphorous.

Tomatoes provide many health benefits including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. The vitamin C in them controls the increase of stress hormones and helps to keep a healthy and energized body.

In addition to all these health benefits, tomatoes are helpful as a leading ingredient in cooking. They add an awesome tangy taste and bright color to the dishes. They also impart smooth texture to soups, dips, and curries.
