Lycopene 10 mg - 120 Softgels
 
  • Antioxidant Support
  • Cellular Protection
  • 10 mg from Tomato Extract

Natural Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant carotenoid and the pigment that gives tomatoes, watermelon and pink grapefruit their characteristic red color.  Clinical studies have indicated that natural Lycopene works thorugh a number of mechanisms to support cardiovascular health and immune function.  In addition, epidemiological studies have determined that Lycopene may be particularly important for the support of prostate health, as well as for the health of the digestive tract.


Research has found that the benefits of lycopene appear to affect parts of the body where lycopene concentration is highest, such as in the prostate gland. New research suggests a potential benefit for bone and skin health, and male infertility. Lycopene is an antioxidant which appears to prevent the formation of harmful by-products of metabolism called free radicals. Free radicals are thought to be responsible for damaging the body’s cells, as well as their genetic makeup, leading to certain chronic diseases.

Researchers have currently not found any side effects from eating foods that have lycopene or from taking a lycopene supplement. The bottom line is that it is a beneficial substance for your body. Once you ingest it, your body gets to work using it as an antioxidant and for whatever else your body needs it for. To be safe, just make sure you are following standard dosage requirements. 

Lycopene  may reduce sun damage by 35%. Studies have shown that this phytonutrient neutralizes harmful free radicals created by the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. It's function as an antioxidant prevents free radicals from disrupting the balance of new bone formation with the bone loss that naturally occurs with age. When that balance is thrown off, bone loss exceeds bone formation, causing the brittle bone disease osteoporosis.


Lycopene is well known specifically to help prevent many forms of cancer as well as the prevention and treatments of many illnesses and diseases such as:

  • Heart diseases-Lycopene stops LDL cholesterol from being oxidized by free radicals and in turn cannot be deposited in the plaques which narrows and hardens the arteries.

  • Infertility-Research suggests that lycopene may help in the treatment of infertility. Results from tests showed that lycopene can boost sperm concentration in men.

  • Helps prevent diabetes.

  • Prevents age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

  • Prevents the aging of skin and keeps it younger looking.

  • Acts as an internal sunscreen and protects your skin from sunburn.

  • Lycopene is also been known to help prevent osteoporosis.
