Okygen Lycopene – The powerful antioxidant that will prevent diseases and boost your health.
Lycopene is a red carotenoid pigment found in the human skin, liver, adrenal glands, lungs, prostate and colon. It is commonly known for its presence in red fruits and vegetables.
Clinical research has shown that lycopene possesses antioxidant properties, playing a determining role in promoting general health. Lycopene actually has twice the amount of antioxidants that common beta-carotene has. Its impressive composition sparked a significant amount of studies performed to determine its role in cancer prevention.
What can lycopene do for me?
Like other carotenoids, lycopene has antioxidant properties capable of providing protection against the harmful effects of free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that damage our cells, causing a process called oxidation. Oxidation can be responsible for the appearance of many diseases, and plays a decisive part in the skin’s ageing process as well.
Lycopene’s antioxidant effect can fight against oxidative damage, preventing diseases and promoting a younger looking and healthier skin.
Lycopene to prevent cancer
Studies have shown that the risk of some types of cancer is lower in people who regularly eat food with higher levels of lycopene. Evidence gathered in these studies strongly suggests lycopene protects against lung, stomach and prostate cancer.
Other evidence also highlighted its effect in protecting against cancer of the cervix, breast, mouth, pancreas, oesophagus, colon, and rectum.
In clinical trials, test subjects with cancer were given a lycopene supplement, while the test group, also composed of cancer patients, was given a placebo.
After a few months being monitored, the group being supplemented with lycopene showed a reduction in the growth of cancer cells, while the group receiving the placebo showed no visible improvements.
The researchers were able to establish a direct correlation between lycopene supplementation and stopping cancer growth.
Health boosting effect
Upon gathering numerous pieces of evidence drawn from several studies, lycopene was also credited with producing other significantly healthful effects, such as preventing coronary artery disease, helping to treat male infertility, diabetes, age-related macular degeneration and cataracts, as well as osteoporosis.
Okygen developed Lycopene to give you the powerful and comprehensive protective action of lycopene in small and convenient capsules.
