Tomatoes are lush, red and juicy and at their peak this time of year. Tomatoes get their red/orange color from the potent cancer fighting phytochemical, Lycopene.
Lycopene is also found in other red and pink foods such as watermelons, red papayas, pink grapefruit, pink guavas, red carrots, red bell peppers, cayenne pepper, and rose hips. Sea Buckthorn Berries and Goji berries, both rich sources of Lycopene are considered to be restorative herbs that confer longevity in Traditional Chinese Medicine
