Tomatoes are the primary source of lycopene, an antioxidant associated with various health advantages, including a lower risk of heart disease and cancer. In addition, they have vitamin C, potassium, folate, and vitamin K in abundance.

Tomatoes are the most commonly grown fruit worldwide and Japanese scientists have found that tomatoes have a nutrient that could prevent the development of vascular diseases.

The study shows that 9-oxo-octadecadienoic, a compound found in tomatoes, has anti-dyslipidemic affects. The researchers focused on extracts that deal with dyslipidemia, a condition that results in an abnormal amount of lipids, like fat or cholesterol, in the blood stream.

No symptoms are usually caused by dyslipidemia itself. But it could cause symptomatic vascular diseases, like cirrhosis and arteriosclerosis. It is important to avoid an increased build-up of lipids to be able to prevent these diseases. Many health beneficial compounds have already been identified in tomatoes.

The researchers focused on 9-oxo-octadecadienoic acid in this study in order to evaluate its potential anti-dyslipidemia properties.

They found that the compound enhanced fatty acid oxidation as well as contributed to hepatic lipid metabolism regulation. These results indicate that 9-oxo-octadecadienoic acid possesses anti-dyslipidemia properties and can consequently help prevent vascular diseases.

Discovering a compound in foodstuffs that helps prevent obesity-related chronic diseases is a huge advantage in dealing with these diseases. This means that tomatoes make it possible for individuals to easily manage the start of dyslipidemia by way of their daily eating plan.
