Staying Well
Tomato Juice Protects Bones

US MED Gives BackA new study shows that lycopene, a substance that makes tomatoes and other fruits red, reduces the bone resorption linked to osteoporosis

At the University of Toronto's Calcium Research Laboratory, researchers say lycopene from tomatoes has previously been shown to have a protective effect on bones. Their new finding suggests that lycopene can be used as a natural complementary or alternative supplement for the reduction of bone absorption. It is especially recommended for women who are age 50 or more.

The doctor says it's possible that drinking a couple of glasses of tomato juice a day could keep osteoporosis away.

Other foods with high levels of lycopene include pink grapefruit, watermelon and guava. Among prepared foods, spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce and paste, and ketchup are loaded with lycopene.
