Lycopene Shows Promise as a Fat Fighter


For those of you looking to lose some weight in the New Year, hope comes from Taiwan in the form on a tomato.  A small study published in the Nutrition journal found that people who drank a (280 ml/) daily glass of tomato juice had smaller waistlines. Taiwanese researchers attributed the reduction to the 32.5 mg of lycopene in every glass. According to the findings, lycopene increases adiponectin levels–a hormone released by fat cells that helps regulate insulin sensitivity and energy–by 25%.  In addition to a smaller waistlines, common markers of inflammation were also reduced. This is good news if you’re a tomato lover.
