Lycopene is a red pigment found in plants belonging to the cartoenoid family. The greatest sources are found in fresh fruits and vegetables like watermelon, red grapefruit and tomatoes.
Lycopene is one of the six predominant carotenoids found in human plasma. Since humans can’t synthesize carotenoids, we need to get them from our diet - or dietary supplements.
Lycopene has attracted much attention following various reports that associate high intakes of this carotenoid with prevention of heart diseases. As one of the most potent antioxidants, lycopene helps protect our body from free radicals, which can cause damage to cells and contribute to serious illnesses. The prevention of Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation may be the reason for a possible risk reduction in atherosclerosis and thus coronary heart diseases.
Epidemiological studies also indicate an association between lycopene-rich diets and a reduced risk of prostate cancer. The combination of strong antioxidant properties with additional effects on the inter-and-intracellular communication and signalling pathways may be responsible for the reduction of the risk of prostate cancer.
Lycopene is also the first line of antioxidant defense in skin and contributes to healthy skin.
