Depending on who you ask, Tomatoes are often classified as either a fruit OR a vegetable.
Tomatoes are a serious dietary source of Lycopene, which is an antioxidant with numerous health benefits.
I know what you’re thinking!
Isn’t lycopene a food that LOWERS your testosterone?!
Well, that’s what a study on the matter acknowledged.
Hear me out first…
The study, which involved rats, showed that by pumping them with an enormous dose of lycopene, phytofluene, or tomato powder, serum testosterone concentrations were recorded at 30% – 40% less than the control group.
HOWEVER (and this is often an enormous, however), the quantity of lycopene they were force-feeding these rats was the human equivalent of eating 3.3 tomatoes PER DAY.
Would you eat 3 – 4 tomatoes per day?
Most people don’t.
