Tomatoes Found to Contain Nutrient Which Prevents Vascular Diseases

Tomatoes Found to Contain Nutrient Which Prevents Vascular Diseases: They are the most widely produced fruit in the world and now scientists have discovered that tomatoes contain a nutrient which could tackle the onset of vascular diseases. The compound, 9-oxo-octadecadienoic, was found to enhance fatty acid oxidation and contributed to the regulation of hepatic lipid metabolism. These findings suggest that 9-oxo-octadecadienoic acid has anti-dyslipidemia effects and can therefore help prevent vascular diseases. Molecular Nutrition & Food Research, Jan. 2011
