Douglas Labs Lycopene is extracted from tomato fruits. Each softgel provides 5 mg pure lycopene.
Lycopene is a nutritionally important carotenoid that is present in selected red-colored fruits and vegetables, such as watermelon and tomato.
Lycopene is an important antioxidant nutrient that protects healthy cells from oxidative and free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable chemicals formed in the body during metabolism and from exposure to environmental sources, such as pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals are not inherently bad (they are necessary for energy metabolism and immune function), but when there is an excessive number of free radicals in the body, they can attack healthy cells, especially their membrane lipids and proteins. This, in turn, is thought to contribute to a number of degenerative diseases.
