Recently, researchers from the University of Cambridge found that when patients with cardiovascular diseases supplemented with tomato extract-lycopene (a powerful antioxidant 10 times stronger than vitamin E), the function of endothelial blood vessels was improved (the inner blood vessels) Lining leather).


Dr. Joseph Cheriyan, a clinical pharmacologist at Addenbrooke Hospital and a lecturer at the University of Cambridge, said that a large number of studies have shown that the Mediterranean diet-including tomatoes and other fruits containing lycopene-is beneficial to cardiovascular health. But so far, its underlying mechanism is still unknown.


The research was sponsored by the Cambridge University Hospital NHS Trust, and the results were published in the online scientific journal PLoS ONE. The researchers took Ateronon (a 7mg supplement containing lycopene) and a placebo to 36 cardiovascular disease patients and 36 healthy volunteers.


The results of the study showed that in patients supplemented with lycopene, the ability of blood vessels to expand by 53%. Vasoconstriction is one of the key factors leading to heart attack and stroke.

Cheriyan said this result shows the importance of a healthy diet for people at risk of heart disease and stroke. Scientific research clearly shows that lycopene can improve the vascular function of patients with cardiovascular disease. The once-daily "Tomato Pill" cannot be a substitute for other treatments, but it can provide additional benefits when used with other drugs.


Professor Jeremy Pearson of the British Heart Foundation said that impaired vascular endothelial function is a known predictor of future heart disease risk. Further work is needed to determine whether the beneficial effects obtained in this study can benefit high-risk patients clinically.
