Ten health benefits of tomatoes.


Who knew that the secret to everything from disease prevention to glowing, healthy skin could be found in the world’s most popular fruit? Here are ten health benefits of tomatoes.

 

Tomato Plants at DOM ITP

 

1. Healthy Skin

Tomatoes make your skin look great. Beta-carotene, also found in carrots and sweet potatoes, helps protect skin against sun damage. Tomatoes’ lycopene also makes skin less sensitive to UV light damage, a leading cause of fine lines and wrinkles.

 

2. Strong Bones  

Tomatoes build strong bones.The vitamin K and calcium in tomatoes are both very good for strengthening and repairing bones. Lycopene also has been shown to improve bone mass, which is a great way to fight osteoporosis.

 

3. Cancer Fighter 

Tomatoes are a natural cancer fighter. Lycopene (again!) can reduce the risk of several cancers, including prostate, cervical, mouth, pharynx, throat, esophagus, stomach, colon, rectal, prostate and ovarian cancer. Tomatoes’ antioxidants (vitamins A and C) fight the free radicals which can cause cell damage.

 

4. Blood Sugar Balancer 

Tomatoes can keep your blood sugar in balance. Tomatoes are a very good source of chromium, which helps to regulate blood sugar.

 

5. Healthy Vision  

Tomatoes can improve your vision. The vitamin A that tomatoes provide can improve vision and help prevent night blindness. Recent research shows that consuming tomatoes may help reduce the risk of macular degeneration, a serious and irreversible eye condition.

 

6. Healthy Hair  

Tomatoes will even make your hair look better.The vitamin A found in tomatoes works to make hair strong and shiny. (Sorry, tomatoes cannot help much with thinning hair—but they will make the hair you have look better!)

 

7. Prevent Kidney Stones  

Tomatoes can help prevent kidney stones and gallstones. Some studies suggest that kidney and gall stones are less likely to form in people who eat tomatoes without the seeds.

 

8. Reduce Pain  

Tomatoes can reduce chronic pain. If you are one of the millions of people who deal with mild to moderate chronic pain (such as from arthritis or back pain), tomatoes may be a pain-buster. Tomatoes are high in bioflavonoids and carotenoids, which are known anti-inflammatory agents.

 

9. Lose Weight  

Tomatoes can help you lose weight. If you are on a sensible diet and exercise plan, build lots of tomatoes into your everyday eating. They make a great snack and can be used to “bulk up” salads, casseroles, sandwiches and other meals. Because tomatoes contain lots of water and fiber, they are what Weight Watchers calls a “filling food,” one of those foods that fills you up fast without adding a lot of calories or fat.

 

10.  Reduce Stroke

Tomatoes shrink stroke risk by over 50 percent. The succulent fruit provides high levels of lycopene in blood and significantly reduces the risk of stroke.

DOM ITP carries several varieties of tomato plants including the popular: Bawole Serce, Olbrzym, Faworyt, Betalux.

Gooseberry, Black Currant & Red Currant – full of health benefits.


It’s well known that the berry family is full of health benefits but it’s lesser known members like Gooseberry, Black Currant and Red Currant are literally BURSTING with health benefits that not many people know about.

 

These lesser known varieties are often a struggle to find in Northern America. In fact, these three are native to Europe, Northern Africa and South East Asia; but, DOMITP in Chicago carries all three varieties and sells out each season in record time.

 

 

Gooseberry

Gooseberry is among the healthiest food due to the high nutrient content rich of antioxidants, iron, vitamin A, C, fiber, potassium, magnesium and calcium. Some say it’s effective to prevent cancer or tumor cell growth while also improving eye health, improving hair luster, skin and anemia. Gooseberry reduces bad cholesterol also it improves nerve health. So gooseberry proves best food to improve cardiovascular health.

 

 

Red Currant

Red currants may be small, but they are actually tiny powerhouses of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are key to looking youthful, feeling great and keeping healthy and nourished. Red currants in particular are rich in B vitamins and Vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that fights and even reverses free radical damage in skin cells. These vitamins also help with skin cell regeneration and promote healing from harmful UV ray damage.

 

 

Black Currant

Black currant offers many benefits, the list of benefits is quite impressive and includes brain, digestive and eye health along with positive influences in the areas of asthma and overall lung function, colds and flu, and women’s health. Black currant is also effective in increasing dopamine levels, which are low in Alzheimer’s patients.

 

 

Although these three varieties of berries are native to Europe, Northern Africa and Southeast Asia – they can be found right here in Chicago and you too can partake in their health benefits immediately. These bushes are ready to plant and will produce fruit this season, so there’s no reason to wait! DOMITP only carries a limited supply of these and they sell out each season.

 

Be sure to stop by the garden location in Chicago 5212 W. Belmont Ave. Chicago, IL 60641 or the suburbs 1 E. Camp McDonald Prospect Heights, IL 60070. Zapraszamy na zakupy do Dom itp!

First Aid From Nature: Horse Balsam or “Masc Konska”


Horse Balsam is a unique balm made from 25 herbs. Horse Balsam combines essential oils and herbal extracts that when combined provide a strong effect that helps with joints, muscles, spine and helps relieve rheumatic conditions.

 

Pferdebalsam Horse Balsam – Made in Germany

 

Pferdebalsam Horse Balsam is made in Germany according to a recipe that has been handed down through generations. The recipe uses a unique combination of herbs that helps with joint problems and also provides relief in the case of strained muscles. At the same time, it works as a preventive measure because if it’s applied before an athletic activity it warms up muscles and prepares for exercise.

 

The history of Horse Balsam is an interesting one. It was developed at the turn of the century, as seen in the advertisement below.

Where did you get that horse?

Swapped old Blind Nell for him.

You’re as blind as Nell. He’s ringboned.

No matter, I’ll fix him all up with Gombault’s Caustic Balsam. The best horse liniment!

 

It was used to help horses with joint inflammation and used for human liniment, at the turn of the century.  It is continued being used today because of the powerful combination of relaxing effects of essential oils and herbal extracts. Horse Balsam has also been proven effective for varicose veins.

 

As the old advertisement states – if you need fixing, give Horse Balsam a try!

 

Available at our stores for $16.99. Special online promotion through April 30th, 2014 – FREE SHIPPING to continental USA (a value of $6.99) on only Horse Balsam through our website Domitp.com. Zapraszamy na zakupy do Dom itp.
