What is Lycopene?

Lycopene is a pigment nutrient with potent antioxidant activity that is famously known for giving tomatoes their bright red color. This red pigment, also known as a carotenoid, can be found in watermelon, guava, apricots and pink grapefruit as well. This nutrient is poorly-absorbed, but its absorption significantly increases in cooked and processed products, such as tomato sauce and ketchup.**

Lycopene is one of the most powerful carotenoid antioxidants known to science. It supports overall well-being by neutralizing the cell-damaging effects of free radicals. Its high antioxidant activity optimizes overall cellular health, as it protects cell membranes and DNA while maintaining normal cell function.**

Lycopene is most highly concentrated in the testes and prostate gland, suggesting its potential importance for men’s wellness. Extensive research has shown that the carotenoid helps to maintain optimal prostate health. For this reason, lycopene may be most well-known as a prostate-supportive nutrient. It is commonly found in nutritional supplement formulations that are designed to optimize prostate wellness and support normal prostate function.**

Lycopene is also used to promote cardiovascular health. It has been found to inhibit oxidation of LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol). Oxidized LDL is associated with a range of cardiovascular problems. In influencing oxidation of LDL cholesterol, this red carotenoid is believed to help maintain blood vessel flexibility and free-flowing circulation.**

Recent investigations suggest even more possible benefits. Research has shown that lycopene appears to protect the skin against the sun’s damaging rays, suggesting potential applications for skin health and anti-aging formulas. Studies also show that it promotes robust immune system function. Lycopene’s higher concentrations in the breasts, cervix, pancreas and colon may be linked with additional antioxidant wellness benefits. Plus, research has found that lycopene, like its related carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin, may support vision wellness and macular health during the aging process.**

Lycopene Supplements

Lycopene supplement products are generally derived from tomatoes and available in softgel, capsule or tablet form. As a fat-soluble nutrient, it is believed to be best absorbed when consumed along with fatty foods.**

Lycopene Supplement Directions for Use

Always talk to a health care professional before starting any routine nutritional supplementation. No standard lycopene dosage has been established, but daily supplements often range between 10 mg and 40 mg.**
