Tomato, Tomatoe; Get Your Lycopene!

Lycopene

Lycopene is a great natural preventative for so many conditions and diseases. An extremely potent antioxidant found not only in tomatoes, but in papaya, watermelon and pink grapefruit as well. Lycopene is what gives these specific fruits their red coloring.
As an antioxidant, Lycopene can neutralize dangerous cancer causing free radicals in the body. This helps to prevent cancer and other devastating diseases.

Lycopene, for men, is a very important supplement to add to their daily regiment or diet. It has been shown to not only reduce the risk for prostate cancer but also has recently been shown to have a positive effect for men suffering from Benign Prostate Hyperplasia. This condition is a benign, or non-cancerous, swelling of the prostate. Half of all men over fifty years old will experience. In recent studies conducted in Germany, a group of men who added Lycopene to their diet had far more improvement in their prostate health than the group who did not add anything.

Lycopene is not something one’s body can produce so one must get it from food or supplements. Either way has been shown as effective. It is worth noting, however, that if you choose food as your avenue to Lycopene; processed tomato products (canned) are a better way to go, as they have up to eight times the lycopene of a raw tomato.

Lycopene is natural and absolutely safe. There have never been any reports of anyone overdosing or getting sick from it. The only know contraindication is that it may hinder the effectiveness of Chemo or Radiation Therapy.
In both genders, Lycopene reduces “bad” cholesterol, decreases the risk of heart disease and is also a major preventative of Macular Degeneration, an eye condition that can eventually steal your vision completely.

Try supplements, eat tomatoes, do both and know that you are helping your body in ways bigger than you can understand! Prevention is always the best cure.

Take Care and Be Well!
