High levels of Lycopene, in the blood and fatty tissues, correlate with reduced risk of cancer, heart disease and macular degeneration. The human body cannot produce Lycopene so it must be obtained from food sources.
A study on heart disease found that men with high levels of Lycopene in their fatty tissues had a 50 percent reduced risk of heart disease.
Another study found that men who ate tomato products more than twice per week had a 21 to 34 percent reduced risk of prostate cancer. Those who ate 10 servings or more per week decreased their risk by 45 percent.
Women with high levels of Lycopene have a 5 times lower rate of cervical cancer than those with the lowest levels.
Lycopene has also been shown to have a protective effect against stomach, colon, lung and skin cancers. It reduces the risk of arteriosclerosis by inhibiting platelet aggregation and reducing inflammation and helps to protect the skin from damage resulting from UV sun exposure. It is a common ingredient in anti-aging creams and lotions. Lycopene degrades easily so it’s important to keep the container properly sealed between uses.
