The Terrific Tomato

Tomatoes - when eaten fresh off the vine - contain the most balanced nutrient array of vitamins and minerals of any fruit or vegetable on the planet. These are perfect for late summer salads!!! Heirloom Tomatoes are a summer's treat that are rich in vitamins C, K, A, and B-complex, as well as potassium, chromium, biotin, and beta carotene. This amazing array of nutrition makes heirloom tomatoes excellent for helping to nourish the adrenal glands, reduce stress damage, build the immune system, lower blood pressure, protect against skin damage, improve cardiovascular health, and strengthen bones. Heirloom tomatoes are also an excellent source of lycopene, a super-antioxidant, which is known to help prevent breast, pancreatic, intestinal, bladder, cervical, colorectal, lung, skin, endometrial, and prostate cancers. Heirloom tomatoes also are known to aid in the digestion of dense proteins, assist in dissolving gallstones, and purify the blood making them highly beneficial for your digestive tract and lymphatic system. Heirloom Tomatoes are often sweet and savory and at this time of year they can be found abundantly at your local farmers markets.
