What Are The Benifits of Lycopene?

Nov 28, 2019

Lycopene is a natural carotenoid with the strongest antioxidant found in plants in nature. It is mainly found in tomatoes. Lycopene's function of scavenging free radicals and singlet oxygen is far better than other carotenoids and vitamin e. It can effectively prevent aging and low immunity, and enjoys the reputation of "plant gold" in western countries. And the benifits of lycopene are many. So who need to add lycopene?

1. Patients with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

The development of common chronic diseases, such as obesity, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, often results in damage to the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. In severe cases, it can lead to fatal diseases such as heart disease and stroke. Recent studies have shown that during the occurrence and development of atherosclerosis, lipoprotein oxidation in the vascular intima is a key factor, and lycopene plays an important role in reducing lipoprotein oxidation, which can protect low density Lipoproteins are protected from oxidative damage and thus play a significant role in the protection of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular vessels.



2.Beauty lovers who need skin repair

Our skin is constantly under attack by free radicals. The direct damage that these unstable molecules bring to us is the result of skin aging. High levels of antioxidants are essential to keep the skin healthy and youthful, so the most effective way is to maintain high levels of antioxidants against the skin inside the skin, while lycopene, a bright red pigment, helps reduce UV light on the skin The damage not only can neutralize the damage of free radicals, but also protect the collagen and elastic fibers in the skin against decomposition, thereby delaying the skin's aging process.


3. Cancer (malignant tumor) patients

A tumor is a new organism formed by the human body under the action of various tumorigenic factors. Cells in local tissues lose normal regulation of their growth at the gene level, resulting in abnormal proliferation and differentiation. Compared with benign tumors, malignant tumors grow faster, show invasive growth, are prone to bleeding, necrosis, ulcers, etc., and often have distant metastases, causing the body to lose weight, weakness, anemia, loss of appetite, fever, and severe organs. Impaired function, etc., eventually lead to patient death. The results of clinical research show that ingesting 30 mg of lycopene per day can achieve the effect of preventing various cancers such as prostate cancer, digestive tract cancer and bladder cancer. Lycopene can also reduce inflammation, prevent DNA damage, regulate the "gap junction" of important endocrine growth factors, and help them stop uncontrolled growth. It has a significant effect in preventing the formation of tumors and alleviating the deterioration of malignant tumors.


It is worth noting that cooking can release lycopene better. Ingestion of unprocessed tomatoes resulted in little change in lycopene and less absorption; while eating after heating or heating with more oil at the same time, the concentration of lycopene increased by 3 times and the absorption rate was higher. Because the plant cell wall is ruptured after heating, lycopene is dissolved out, and lycopene is fat-soluble, so the absorption rate after processing with lipids is high.
