Tomatoes linked to improved gut health, study finds

  • A recent study observed the effects of tomato consumption on the gut microbiome in pigs.
  • After 10 piglets were fed a diet of which 10% was freeze-dried tomato powder, their ratio of “good” to “bad” bacteria shifted toward a more favorable profile.
  • The tomato-fed pigs also acquired greater diversity in their gut microbial community, believed to be a signifier of stronger gut health.
  • The findings could potentially lead to dietary recommendations for long-term health in humans.
