Lycopene is a dark red colored phytochemical of the carotene class, and is commonly found in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables, such as red carrots, watermelons, and papayas. Lycopene has broad range antioxidant properties, and is most linked with cardiovascular and heart supportive benefits.
Recommended amount per dose is 100-250 mg per day for normal supplementation. 500-750 mg per day can be used for cases of severe deficiency. Do not consume without an accurate mg scale.
Lycopene is a dietary antioxidant belonging to the carotene family. While lycopene is a carotenoid, like beta-carotene, it is not a precursor for vitamin A, and should not be treated as such. Rather, Lycopene itself is a potent antioxidant, protecting against cell death and neuronal excitotoxicity, with additional cardiovascular and heart supportive effects. Lycopene also has antibacterial and antifungal properties.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
