They're rich in vitamins and nutrients (like E, B6, and folic acid) that protect against brain cell damage. But don't forget that as soon as you pick a tomato off the vine or pull a carrot out of the ground, its nutrient content starts to decline.

As a reminder, always consult your doctor for medical advice and treatment before starting any program.
