Cardiovascular issues have been the major cause of death in American population. There are many reasons leading to heart related issues which are controllable as well as uncontrollable. Factors like smoking habit, obesity etc. are controllable while the ones like ageing are uncontrollable. From previous studies, scientists have proved that tomatoes, which are abundant in bioactive compounds, such as carotenoid, vitamin A, calcium, and gamma‐aminobutyric acid, help in benefitting cardiovascular risk elements such as high blood pressure and lipid and glucose metabolism, over a longer period. Having 1 glass of unsalted tomato juice included in daily diet is said to have remarkable benefits on cardiovascular health. "The current study is the first to investigate the effects of tomato or tomato product intake on cardiovascular disease risk markers over the course of a year and over a wide age range.", report the authors. Men and women participants were included in the study, whose health factors like blood pressure, levels of triglycerides and cholesterol in the blood, and fasting plasma glucose were measured. They were provided with unlimited access to unsalted tomato juice for one year. Results reflected that their average systolic blood pressure dropped from 141.2 to 137.0 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg). Also, average diastolic blood pressure dropped from 83.3 to 80.9 mm Hg. Another positive aspect found was that they benefitted in reducing hypertension stage 2 down to hypertension stage 1 in participants.
