One of the most well-known nutrients in tomatoes is lycopene — the compound that gives tomato its deep red color. Lycopene is a vital anti-oxidant that has been shown to have potent anti-cancerous activity. This compound is not naturally produced in your body, so it must be supplied via your diet. Other fruits and vegetables also contain lycopene, but none has the high concentration of lycopene that the tomato boasts. Interestingly, when cooked, the bioavailability of lycopene increases rather than decreases, as is the case with many other raw foods, as heat has a tendency to destroy valuable nutrients.
