Natural Factors Lycopene 10mg 60sgels
Health Canada #:
The tomato oleoresin contains 6% lycopene in addition to other natural compounds found in the tomato, such as natural tocopherols. Men who eat tomatoes regularly reduce their risk of prostate cancer significantly. Four servings of tomatoes a week can lower risk by 20 percent: up to 10 servings per week lowers risk up to 45 percent.
Lycopene, the carotenoid that gives tomatoes and berries their red colour, is likely the protective factor. It quenches singlet oxygen (a highly aggressive and unstable oxygen molecule that does much damage as it steals electrons from other molecules) even more efficiently than beta carotene and vitamin E.
