Lycopene a member of the carotenoid family, is found in red and pink fruits such as grapefruit or watermelon, and is the pigment that gives them their colour, but it is most widely known to be found in tomatoes.

Lycopene has potent antioxidant capabilities. Antioxidants protect against oxidative stress and cell damage caused by unstable compounds in the body known as free radicals.

Lycopene has been subject to numerous studies and ongoing scientific research into potential benefits. It has been associated with a range of uses for health including for Men’s health; protecting prostate health, Skin health; reducing the inflammatory response to UV damage, and Heart health; some doctors believe a daily dose of lycopene or a “tomato pill” may reduce the risk of heart disease by improving blood flow.Lycopene

Lycopene can come in different forms. Previously our capsules have used lycopene sourced by fermentation. Our lycopene capsules have gone up in price due to the new beadlet technology used in the capsules which is from a natural tomato source.  The lycopene is enrobed in a beadlet for improved stability and absorption that other lycopene supplements on the market may not have. This stability helps to prevent the supplement from being affected by the heat and light. Each capsule is the equivalent of 25mg Lycopene.
