About Lycopene

  • Lycopene, an oil soluble carotenoid, naturally occurs in fresh fruits and vegetables such as tomatoes, watermelon, pink grapefruit and papaya.
  • It is a red pigment that also offers antioxidant properties. As a powerful antioxidant, lycopene is thought to protect the body from harmful free radicals which contribute to a number of serious health conditions. Industry research indicates that lycopene may be helpful in supporting cardiovascular, prostate and skin health.
  • Nature-identical lycopene can be used as a colorant in some global regions.
