Lycopene
 


Source Naturals


Lycopene is an all-natural extract of tomatoes standardized to contain 6% lycopene, in addition to a variety of other phytonutrients that occur naturally in tomatoes, including beta-carotene, tocopherols, phytosterols, phytoene and phytofluene. According to some research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, indicated that a combination of the natural phytochemicals found in tomatoes, not just lycopene alone, can help lower the risk of deaths resulting from prostate cancer. Studies conducted by researchers from the Universities showed that rats fed diets containing whole tomato powder, which contained all the important tomato phytonutrients, had a lower risk of death from prostate cancer than rats fed diets containing synthetic lycopene.

  • Antioxidant support for cardiovascular health.

  • Recent scientific studies on this phytochemical indicate that lycopene exhibits antioxidant properties that protect the body against free radical damage and may also support prostate health, a growing concern among maturing men.

Scientists, have also recently released research about lycopene’s role in reducing the risk of prostate cancer. In a study, published, scientists found that pure lycopene significantly reduced the effect of the male hormone androgen on the prostate. According to the researchers, androgens are thought to play a key role in the development of prostate cancer in men over a lifetime. In co-operation with the German, scientists used an animal prostate cancer model to mimic human cancer. The animals were fed lycopene, vitamin E, a combination of both or a placebo mixture for four weeks, and then received an injection of prostate cancer cells into their prostates. These cancer cells grew into tumors within two weeks. Feeding lycopene, as well as vitamin E, caused an enhanced killing rate of tumor cells, which was shown by larger areas of dead tissue in the prostate tumors.

According to research leader, J. Elliot, researchers found that lycopene interfered with local androgen activation by down-regulating 5-alpha-reductase, the key enzyme for the transformation of testosterone to DHT. In addition, lycopene decreased the expression of two prostatic cytokines, IGF-I and IL-6, both regarded as risk factors for prostate cancer.
