It’s been long established that Tomatoes are great for prostate health—thanks to that magic red antioxidant, lycopene. And it’s not just prostates. It seems the pigment helps with a host of things, including heart disease, blindness, reducing stroke risk, Atherosclerosis, and even cancer.
As such it should come as no surprise that a variety of male health supplements containing lycopene have become available.
What may come as a surprise though, are findings of a new health application for lycopene: Osteoporosis.
Tomatoes Beat Bone Breakdown
New University of Toronto research with post-menopausal women looked at how levels of N-telepeptide, a chemical linked to bone breakage, were affected by high-tomato and no-tomato diets.
We like to imagine the former involved lots of compulsory Caprese Salad
The results? After four months on these respective diets, while the no-tomato group saw an increase in N-teleptide, the high-tomato group’s levels plummeted. The researchers concluded that the equivalent of two glasses of tomato juice per day can be enough to keep osteoporosis at bay.
Osteoporosis in Men
Despite common perception, it’s not just women who are affected by Osteoporosis. The potentially crippling disease affects millions of men worldwide. In most cases, men become susceptible to the disease due to low Testosterone. And so fittingly Testosterone is commonly used in both the prevention and treatment of Osteoporosis in men.
It’s normal for Testosterone levels to decline with age. A great natural way to counter this process is Herbal Ignite.
