  • Tomatoes provide a great source of antioxidants helping to keep your cells from ageing and further help to protect against cancer and high cholesterol levels.
  • Did you know that when tomatoes are cooked with olive oil they provide more lycopene than compared to raw tomatoes?
  • Garlic is a great health boosting ingredient known to enhance immune function and is also anti-ageing.
