The Power of Tomatoes


Tomatoes may be the magic food for men trying to become fathers!

Scientists from the University Portsmouth in England just published a study looking at male fertility/infertility and tomatoes.

What they found was that after eating a can of cream of tomato soup for 14 consecutive days, their levels of carotenoid lycopene increased up to 12 percent. (Carotenoid is what gives the tomatoes their red color.)

This is significant because some researchers have found that many men struggling with infertility also have low lycopene levels. This antioxidant is important for keeping the sperm healthy.

So men, add an extra tomato to your dinner salad tomorrow! :)
