Give your body the benefits of one of the most powerful antioxidants in nature with Lycopene by Natrol. Lycopene is the pigment that gives tomatoes and other fruit and vegetables their red colour. Studies done to-date on lycopene have shown that it is a powerful antioxidant, a compound that blocks the actions of free radicals, activated oxygen molecules that can damaged the cells, and various scientific studies have found a lower risk of cancer amongst people who consume lycopene.
In fact, regularly eating tomatoes and, therefore, lycopene, is a protective factor against the appearance of benign prostatic hyperplasia and the appearance of cancer of the prostate, lung, stomach, bladder, uterine neck and skin. Various studies show that lycopene can reduce the risk of heart diseases due to its ability to reduce the oxidation of lipids and in particular LDL cholesterol.
Its ingestion also reduces the risk of suffering from macular degeneration, an age-related disease that can lead to blindness. Lycopene can also be deemed to be in the front line of defence against ageing of the skin, helping to ensure it remains healthy and beautiful.
