Derived from organically grown non-GMO tomatoes. In a base of pumpkin seed oil, Natural Factors' lycopene provides high potency lycopene in a convenient and easy to swallow softgel capsule. Each softgel contains lycopene equivalent to approximately one 12 ounce glass of tomato juice. Clinical studies have shown that lycopene can offer free radical antioxidant protection useful for people concerned with cancer, prostate conditions, breast health, and heart health.
Lycopene, the carotenoid that gives tomatoes their red colour, is an important quencher of free radicals. It protects against cell damage by acting as an antioxidant and has been shown to have a beneficial impact on the prostate gland.
Together with pumpkin seed oil, this formulation is specific to men’s health and for support of a healthy prostate gland. Pumpkin seed oil is an excellent source of essential fatty acids, as well as key nutrients such as zinc, iron, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
Natural Factors Natural Tomato Lycopene provides essential nutrients for the maintenance of good health. The lycopene is sourced from whole tomatoes and each softgel contains 10 mg of pure lycopene, along with added pumpkin seed oil for additional prostate support.
LYCOPENE from Natural Factors is an antioxidant carotenoid, derived 100% from tomatoes, protective against certain cancers and heart disease. Men who eat substantial quantities of tomatoes appear to have a lower incidence of prostate cancer.
What are Carotenoids?
The prostate - it's a problem for 80% of men 40 years and older. It can lead to unnecessary problems later in life. This small gland, located just below the bladder, impacts both your urinary and sexual functions. Every man has a very effective early warning system.
The most common cause for concern is benign prostatic hyperplasia or BHP, a very aggravating but non-malignant condition in which converted testosterone (DHT) accumulates in the prostate, stimulates excessive prostate cell growth, and causes the gland to enlarge. This often results in annoying urinary problems.
