2. Tomato soup helps prevent cell damage
Tomato soup is an impressive source of antioxidants, including vitamin C and E, as well as various minerals like copper and manganese. While pure organic tomato soup is already rich in antioxidants, we’ve chosen to further enhance the antioxidant value in our tomato soup. By adding ingredients like bell pepper, for example, the vitamin C content of this tomato soup becomes even more remarkable. With one serving, you’ll exceed your daily requirement. In our own organic tomato soup, we’ve also added various herbs, such as oregano and basil. These are also exceptionally rich in antioxidants. Together with the garlic in our soup, they create an extra healthy blend.
3. Tomato soup supports your bones and muscles
When you sip on fresh tomato soup, you’re immediately struck by its powerful flavor. But it’s not just about the taste; tomato soup is also a nutritional powerhouse that helps keep your body strong:
- Generous amounts of potassium contribute to well-functioning muscles, nerves, and a healthy blood pressure.
- Vitamin K in tomato soup is good for bones and supports blood clotting.
- Minerals like calcium and phosphorus in tomato soup play a role in bone formation and help maintain strong bones.
So, if you want to work on a healthy and robust body, definitely include tomato soup on your menu. Plus, its savory umami taste makes it satisfying.
4. Tomato soup is good for blood pressure and blood vessels
Due to its high potassium content, tomato soup helps maintain healthy blood pressure. Your blood pressure is the force with which your blood presses against your blood vessel walls. You don’t want this pressure to be too high or too low. Tomato soup can be beneficial in this regard. Moreover, a delightful bowl of tomato soup also contains a substantial amount of vitamin C, which helps keep your blood vessels strong and flexible. A fantastic combination of nutrients!
5. Tomato soup supports your skin
Who would have thought that regularly enjoying tomato soup could contribute to better hair and healthy skin? Yet, it’s true. The vitamin C in tomato soup helps your body produce collagen, a substance that contributes to maintaining strong and healthy skin. Vitamin C also helps protect your cells and tissues from oxidative damage caused by UV radiation from sunlight. The vitamin A in tomato soup supports your skin from within.
6. Tomato soup supports brain function
The benefits of vitamin C are not limited to what we’ve already covered. Another, equally important advantage of vitamin C is its contribution to various crucial brain functions. It’s beneficial for your memory, concentration, and learning ability. Hence, tomato soup truly qualifies as brain food!
7. Tomato soup provides strength and energy
Experiencing an afternoon dip? Instead of reaching for a cup of coffee and a sugary snack, consider trying a cup of our own organic tomato soup this time. Besides organic tomatoes, it also contains various other ingredients that further enhance the above-mentioned health benefits of tomato soup. Vitamin C supports your energy levels and provides extra energy when fatigued. Our tomato soup also contains substantial amounts of vitamin B6 and other B vitamins, further supporting your energy levels.
Are there any downsides to tomato soup for your health?
In principle, fresh tomato soup is packed with healthy nutrients. However, if you’re sensitive to vegetables belonging to the nightshade family (Solanaceae), it’s better to be cautious with (excessive) tomato soup consumption. Tomatoes also fall into this group, along with potatoes, eggplants, and peppers. These foods can cause allergic or hypersensitivity reactions in some individuals.
