The SuperTomato is born, another weapon against tumors

the SuperTomato

The “Supertomato” is born from an Italian research, at the Istituto di Chimica Biomolecolare (Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry) CNR in Naples.
The World Foundation of Urology-NGO supports the research regarding the “supertomato” in the prevention of prostate tumor.

The “supertomato” is born: a new arm in fighting tumor of the prostate, and more. Many human illnesses, from tumors to cardiovascular illnesses, arthritis and Parkinson's disease, are caused by oxidation-stress and the formation of free radicals. The tomato supplies a balanced mixture of water-soluble and fat-soluble antioxidants that are able to protect the cellular membrane and its contents from the attacks of free radicals.

Now this protective function can be increased through the “supertomato”, a vegetable born from the fusion of several varieties of black tomatoes and pure lines of the San Marzano, that was created in the experimental fields of the CNR.

It is a natural tomato, not a transgenic one, with a high nutritional value, ready to be placed on the market. The supertomato further reinforces the quality of the Mediterranean diet, already known and very much admired throughout the world.
