Research has revealed that drinking unsalted tomato juice can help prevent heart attacks.
This is the main finding of a study published in Food Science & Nutrition, which found that drinking unsalted tomato juice lowered blood pressure and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in Japanese adults at risk for cardiovascular disease.
Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is the harmful type of cholesterol that collects within the walls of your arteries.
In the study, 184 males and 297 females were given a large amount of unsalted tomato juice over the course of one year.
At the end of the study, 94 participants with high blood pressure had lower blood pressure.
