Researchers have recently found an important connection between lycopene, its antioxidant properties, and bone health. Fresh tomatoes and its juices have been shown to help lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. In addition, tomato juices have been shown to help prevent unwanted clumping together of platelet cells in the blood - a factor that is especially important in lowering risk of heart problems like atherosclerosis.
