Tomatoes are the richest source of lycopene, a potent antioxidant. Tomato products improve antioxidant defences and reduce the risk of inflammatory diseases, at least partly, due to the presence of lycopene. Lycopene, as an anti-inflammatory agent, prevents the production of inflammatory cytokines. Obesity is a chronic inflammatory condition in which the increased level of body fat leads to an increase in circulating inflammatory mediators. We hypothesised that the consumption of a lycopene… 
The Effect of Tomato Juice Consumption on Antioxidant Status in Overweight and Obese Females
It seems that more research with longer duration and more sensitive indicators will be required, as it seems that the consumption of a lycopene-rich food would improve the antioxidant defense of women who were overweight or obese.
Dietary supplementation with tomato-juice in patients with metabolic syndrome: a suggestion to alleviate detrimental clinical factors.
Acute Effect of a Single Dose of Tomato Sofrito on Plasmatic Inflammatory Biomarkers in Healthy Men
The positive health effects of this tomato-based product may be attributed not only to lycopene, but to the bioactive compounds of all the ingredients.
trans-Lycopene from tomato juice attenuates inflammatory biomarkers in human plasma samples: An intervention trial.
Trans-Lycopene from TJ may attenuate the risk of cardiovascular disease by reducing the concentration of important inflammatory molecules related to atherosclerosis in a population at high cardiovascular risk.
Processed tomato products and risk factors for cardiovascular disease
Processed tomatoes decreased diastolic blood pressure, but had no significant effects on other endpoints, and future research is required to confirm and potentially extend these findings in individuals with elevated blood pressure.
Soy-tomato enriched diet reduces inflammation and disease severity in a pre-clinical model of chronic pancreatitis
Pre-clinical results indicate that a soy-tomato enriched diet may be a novel treatment approach to reduce inflammation and pain in patients with CP.
Aqueous Extract of Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) and Ferulic Acid Reduce the Expression of TNF-α and IL-1β in LPS-Activated Macrophages
It is found that both the tomato extract and ferulic acid presented inhibitory activity on the expression of TNF-α and IL-1β cytokine by inhibiting the activation of NF-κB.


Effect of a tomato-based drink on markers of inflammation, immunomodulation, and oxidative stress.
Regular consumption of tomato and its products is being consistently associated with lower risk of several types of cancer and, to a lesser extent, coronary heart disease. Among the many tomato
Supplementation of a Low-Carotenoid Diet with Tomato or Carrot Juice Modulates Immune Functions in Healthy Men
Increased plasma carotenoid concentrations after vegetable juice consumption are accompanied by a time-delayed modulation of immune functions in healthy men consuming a low-carotenoids diet.
Tomatoes versus lycopene in oxidative stress and carcinogenesis: conclusions from clinical trials
Consumption of processed tomato products, containing lycopene, is of significant health benefit and can be attributed to a combination of naturally occurring nutrients in tomatoes, the main tomato carotenoid.
Effects of tomato juice consumption on plasma and lipoprotein carotenoid concentrations and the susceptibility of low density lipoprotein to oxidative modification.
The data suggest that alpha-tocopherol is a major determinant in protecting LDL from oxidation, while lycopene from tomato juice supplementaion may contribute to protect phospholipid in LDI, from oxidation.
Dietary lycopene and tomato extract supplementations inhibit nonalcoholic steatohepatitis‐promoted hepatocarcinogenesis in rats
Data indicate that LY and TE can inhibit NASH‐promoted hepatocarcinogenesis mainly as a result of reduced oxidative stress, which could be fulfilled through different mechanisms.
The tomato as a functional food.
The nutrient and the phytochemical content of tomatoes and tomato products are summarized, and how these bioactive components might act together to modulate disease development is summarized.
Anti-inflammatory effect of lycopene on carrageenan-induced paw oedema and hepatic ischaemia–reperfusion in the rat
The present results show that Lycopene exhibited local anti-inflammatory activity and also attenuated liver injury induced by I/R, and it is speculated that lycopene administration might be useful in the pharmacological modulation of inflammatory events.
