Tomato

Tomatoes contain a carotenoid antioxidant called lycopene and that helps regulate inflammatory response (10,11).

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that drinking 280 mL of tomato juice is associated with a 22% decrease in levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), a potent marker of inflammation, and a 25% increase in adiponectin, a hormone that regulates insulin sensitivity and energy levels (12).

The compound protects against prostate, breast, lung, bladder, ovaries, colon, and pancreatic cancer. It also plays a role in cardiovascular health and can even prevent heart disease, hypertension, and atherosclerosis.

Naringenin, a compound found in tomato skin, also fights inflammation while quercetin, another flavonoid, fight free radicals and cancerous cells (13).
