What Is It?
Lycopene is a carotenoid pigment that is responsible for the deep red colour of tomatoes. It is also thought to be responsible for many of the vegetable's health properties. Lycopene is the major carotenoid in human plasma and is especially important for prostate health, and proper cell growth and differentiation.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: Epidemiological studies show that men from cultures with high tomato consumption have better prostate health. Lycopene is a potent antioxidant which accumulates in the prostate gland, protecting it from oxidative damage and unhealthy cell formation. Compared to beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and other carotenoids that have been studied, lycopene is the most potent antioxidant in quenching free radicals.
Secondary Uses: In addition to prostate health, Lycopene plays an important role in cardiovascular health. It reacts directly with peroxyl free radicals that are involved in lipid peroxidation, a key step in arterial hardening.
Who Should Take It?
All men, especially those over the age of 40, who are concerned about their prostate or those who want to protect their prostate gland should consider supplementing with lycopene. Adverse prostate conditions represent the fifth leading cause of death among men worldwide and studies show that higher lycopene consumption is associated with lower abnormal prostate conditions.
Why Vsoftgel™ ?
Manufactured with a patent pending technology, Vsoftgels™ offer superior advantages that vegans/vegetarians can now benefit from. One of the biggest advantages of offering nutrients in a softgel is that softgels allow for better bioavailability of active ingredients. Inside a softgel, fat soluble nutrients, such as Lycopene, can be suspended in an oil base which optimizes their potential for absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. AOR's Vsoftgel™ Lycopene is formulated with other tomato carotenoids for superior efficacy and absorbability. Vsoftgels™ offers these benefits to suit every lifestyle.
Take 1 softgel daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
