Organic Lycopene is the red pigment found mainly in tomatoes and its derived products. It belongs to the family of the Carotenoids and carries a high antioxidant power, representing one of the most important nutrients for human health and wellbeing.
Antioxidants are essential to human health because they stop the action of the free radicals, by-products naturally created in the body cells as result of metabolic oxidative processes. The constant action of free radical can be seen mainly in the premature ageing of cells and in the rise of several more-or-less dangerous diseases, such as dermatitis, cataract, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, pulmonary emphysema, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, cancer. Scientific studies have demonstrated that Lycopene possesses an energetic antioxidant power, twice as much as ß-Carotene and 10 times as much as Vitamin E. Lycopene however is not produced in the human body and can only be taken on through diet and/or supplementation.

Reduced Cancer Risk
While more research is needed, studies have found a connection between lycopene tomatoes intake and cancer prevention — particularly for bone, lung, and prostate cancers. Experimental studies have shown that lycopene slows or stops the growth of cancer cells.
It’s thought that this effect is due to organic lycopene’s uniquely strong antioxidant abilities. Because it's not changed into Vitamin A in our bodies like most carotenoids, scientists believe its antioxidant properties are enhanced, helping to reduce cell damage that can lead to cancer.
A recent study found evidence that tomatoes lycopene reduced bad cholesterol (LDL) while increasing good cholesterol (HDL) levels. This balance is important because high cholesterol develops fatty deposits in our blood vessels, which can clot and lead to a heart attack or stroke. In addition, lycopene can help to maintain good blood pressure, further reducing the risk of heart disease.
