The Tomato, get the facts. LYCOPENE is the Antioxidant SLAMMER!!! And our Organic BROOKLYN SALSA contains 3 times as much lycopene as non-organic brands. No kidding. In fact, new research is beginning to indicate that tomatoes go to war with Lung Cancer. Two powerful compounds found in tomatoes - Coumaric Acid and Chlorogenic Acid - are thought to block the effects of Nitrosamines, a toxin produced naturally in the body and the strongest carcinogen found in tobacco smoke. By blocking the effects, your chances of lung cancer are reduced significantly. Eat up.

Coffee is a liver protecting, cardioprotective superfood. Everyday.
