Nature's Life - Lycopene 30 mg. - 30 Tablets
Nature's Life Lycopene, a member of the carotenoid family, is a potent antioxidant. Lycopnen is intended to provide nutritive support for prostate and heart health.
Lycopene, found primarily in tomatoes, is a member of the carotenoid family—which includes beta-carotene and similar compounds found naturally in food—and has potent antioxidant capabilities.
Where is it found?
Tomatoes and tomato-containing foods are high in lycopene. In the Harvard study, the only tomato-based food that did not correlate with protection was tomato juice. In an unblinded, controlled trial, lycopene supplementation, but not tomato juice, effectively increased the body’s lycopene stores. These studies suggest that the lycopene present in tomato juice is poorly absorbed. However, other research indicates that significant amounts of lycopene from tomato juice can, in fact, be absorbed. Other foods that contain lycopene include watermelon, pink grapefruit, and guava.
Who is likely to be deficient?
This is unknown, but people who do not eat diets high in tomatoes or tomato products are likely to consume less than optimal amounts.
How much is usually taken?
The ideal intake of lycopene is currently unknown; however, the men in the Harvard study with the greatest protection against cancer consumed at least 6.5 mg per day.
Are there any side effects or interactions?
No adverse effects have been reported with the use of lycopene.
