Lycopene provides a natural, tomato extract rich in lycopene, various carotenoids, vitamin E, and other important phytochemicals. In one study involving 30 male subjects, supplementation with lycopene promoted healthy prostate function. This was one of the first randomized, prospective clinical trials to show that a lycopene supplement, rather than dietary tomato consumption, supported prostate health. Research compiled in a multi-center study involving ten European countries revealed that the antioxidant properties of dietary lycopene support cardiovascular health. Fifty-seven epidemiological studies indicate that lycopene from tomato consumption or tomato-based products may help digestive, lung, stomach, cervical and breast cell health. Lycopene has also demonstrated potential for promoting retinal and macular health. Lycopene is provided in this formula as a tomato extract in a base of rice bran oil and beeswax contained in a gelatin capsule. Usual dose is 1 to 2 capsules daily, or as directed by your physician.
