Some studies suggest that supplements containing lycopene may help prevent
macular degeneration, cataracts, and cardiovascular disease. Lycopene is a
powerful antioxidant carotenoid and the pigment that gives tomatoes,
watermelon, and pink grapefruit their characteristic red color. Clinical
studies have indicated that Lycopene works through a number of mechanisms
to support cardiovascular health and immune function. In addition,
epidemiological studies have determined that Lycopene may be particularly
important for the support of prostate health, as well as for the health of
the digestive tract and support their liver health while traveling abroad*
Benefits of Lycopene:
Lycopene: A carotenoid that does not have any provitamin A activity, meaning, it is not converted into vitamin A as the body needs it, yet has significantly more antioxidant activity capability than beta carotene.*
Lycopene has been shown to protect against the carcinogens in tobacco smoke and exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays.*
The best study of lycopene thus far evaluated its possible benefits for
pregnant women. Participants in this double-blind study of 251 women
received either a placebo or 2 mg of lycopene twice daily. For reasons that
are not at all clear, the use of lycopene appeared to reduce the risk of
preeclampsia, a dangerous complication of pregnancy. In addition, the use of
lycopene appeared to help prevent inadequate growth of the fetus. However, despite these promising results researchers are cautious about drawing
conclusions: several other nutritional substances have shown promise for
preventing preeclampsia in preliminary trials only to fail when larger and
more definitive studies were done.*

Lycopene has also shown promise for leukoplakia, a precancerous condition
of the mouth and other mucous membranes. In a double-blind,
placebo-controlled study, 58 people with oral leukoplakia received either 8
mg oral lycopene daily, 4 mg daily, or placebo capsules for three months.
Participants were then followed for an additional two months. The results
indicated that lycopene in either dose was more effective than placebo for
reducing signs and symptoms of leukoplakia and that 8 mg daily was more
effective than 4 mg.*
