Simple remedy to prevent DVT: Eat 6 Tomatoes!

The succulent tomatoes that make a wonderful sight are becoming popular for health benefits. Now, British Scientists have revealed that tomatoes // possess anti-clotting properties, which could be a blessing to passengers on marathon flights, in preventing the formation of potentially dangerous clots, a condition termed as Deep Vein Thrombosis.

It is estimated that the number of people on long duration flights who suffer clots total to nearly 12% of the passengers, therefore this research holds a wealth of hope for DVT patients.

Researchers have found that the yellow liquid surrounding the seeds in a tomato, possess anti-clotting properties. Aspirin also prevents clot formation but carries a side effect of causing bleeding in the stomach. Tomatoes contain similar benefits of Aspirin but it is without any side-effects.

Professor Asim Duttaroy and his team at the Rowett Institute in Aberdeen, who have made this discovery said: 'We have carried out detailed research and tomatoes are entirely safe - even for those prone to stomach ulcers that could bleed.'

Mere consumption of tomatoes and drinking tomato juice is also known to have similar effects of preventing the formation of blood clots. It was observed that a single drink of tomato juice or juice containing the tomato extract extended benefits for the next 18 hrs or so.

Professor Duttaroy added: 'The results of our studies are conclusive - in 97 per cent of people the extract produced a significant change in the thickness of the blood, making the blood less likely to clump together and clot.'
