Whether you grow fresh ingredients from your garden or head to your local farm market, the benefits of eating salsa go beyond satiated taste buds. The components of salsa consist of vegetables that provide various vitamins like C and E. You increase the vitamin C content when you combine the base with other juices, such as lime juice. Pure vitamin C significantly affects heart health and your immune system. 

The combination of garlic and onions in salsa is sure to give you an immune boost, and they're also known to work as a blood thinner. Garlic can improve heart health by lowering blood pressure levels, and onion is excellent for managing blood glucose levels. 

Most of a tomato's weight is water. Many people struggle with drinking water in high quantities, so another surprising health benefit of eating salsa is its hydration.
