In addition, women also decreased cholesterol. According to scientists, this study, like other experiments conducted earlier, proves that gamma-aminobutyric acid, a component of tomato juice, acts on a woman’s body in much the same way as a hormone estrogen. Tomatoes also have an equally beneficial effect on the body of older women. Due to the fact that this vegetable contains a substance lycopene, tomatoes have an anticancer effect and can reduce the likelihood of breast cancer in older women.
