What is Lycopene?
Lycopene is a powerful natural carotenoid antioxidant responsible for the red colour in fruit and vegetables. It is found in particularly high amounts in tomatoes.
Studies conducted by Harvard University, the University of Adeleide in Australia, the University of Almeria and the Soroka Medical Center in Israel confirm this and have proved that this carotenoid prevents the oxidation of low-density cholesterol and reduces the risk of developing atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. They have also concluded that ingesting 25 milligrams of lycopene on a daily basis can reduce LDL cholesterol levels by 10%.
