Lycopene Capsules - Using Beadlet Technology

Lycopene is a member of the carotenoid family and is an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect against oxidative stress and cell damage caused by unstable compounds in the body known as free radicals.

Lycopene 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 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, Lycopene is renowned for its potent antioxidant capabilities and research links to protecting prostate health [1].
  • Skin health: reducing the inflammatory response to UV damage, Research demonstrated in a study that simply eating tomato paste, providing lycopene of approximately 16mg every day for 10 weeks reduced sunburn by an impressive 40% [2].

Research has suggested that increased consumption of carotenoids through the diet may contribute towards protection against UV induced damage. Because carotenoids are efficient in photo-protection, this would suggest that some supplements may offer an extra line of defence against skin cancer and solar ageing.

  • 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. Studies [3][4] around the protective effect of lycopene in cardiovascular disease are ongoing.

Lycopene can come in different forms. Previously our capsules have used lycopene sourced by fermentation. Our lycopene capsules now use beadlet technology 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 10mg Lycopene.
