Gochiso PR-7 contains twice as much Lycopene as regular tomatoes. The significant Lycopene content helps the body to fight free radicals: small chemical elements that can damage cells, causing ageing and illness. The richness of Lycopene goes hand in hand with a very high level of glutamic acid, a compound that triggers the characteristic "Umami" taste of Gochiso PR-7.
The Gochiso PR-7 tomato is backed-up by a clinical trial* conducted by the Hokkaido Information University in Japan. The outcome proved that Gochiso PR-7, very rich in Lycopene, benefits cardiovascular health by lowering the level of LDL cholesterol in the blood. As a result of the trial, the Gochiso PR-7 tomato is allowed to claim a health function in Japan, making it the only science-based in the world.
