100% natural Lycopene for your prostate
Vitality TomatoLycopin is an all-natural extract from red, ripe tomatoes. It is valued as a dietary supplement and functional food ingredient because it provides a full complement of tomato carotenoids and other antioxidants to benefit good health.
Why is Tomato Lycopin important for our health?
Numerous epidemiological studies have demonstrated the beneficial health effects of tomatoes, tomato products and/or tomato phytonutrients. Many of these benefits have been attributed to the antioxidant and free radical quenching activity of the carotenoids (lycopene, beta-carotene, phytoene, phytofluene) and tocopherols (vitamin E) that occur naturally in tomatoes and tomato extract.
Antioxidants "neutralize", or render harmless, oxygen free radical molecules. These are highly reactive toxic by-products of bio-chemical reactions that occur both as a part of normal cell metabolism and when our bodies are exposed to smoking, pollution and other damaging environmental influences.
As long as we are alive, eating and breathing in a polluted world our bodies will have to contend with free radicals and we will need antioxidants to help to reduce the impact and minimize the damage they cause when their numbers become too great.
Free radicals can cause damage both to the structure and to the function of cell membranes, DNA and proteins. This damage has been linked to the onset of many degenerative diseases such as cancer, atherosclerosis, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration as well as to premature aging.
A diet rich in carotenoids and tocopherols gives front line support to the antioxidant system as it protects our cells from free radical attack and supports a healthy immune system. The tomato extract found in Tomato Lycopin is clinically proven to support prostate, heart and skin health.

A multi-disciplinary team of agricultural scientists, food technologists, processing and production engineers were involved in the development of the tomato extract manufacturing process, and the Good Manufacturing Processes (GMP's) employed are approved by the Ministry of Health.
Tomato Lycopin – a valuable part of your daily health
Tomato Lycopin is a dietary supplement recommended for adults as a valuable part of a daily health care regimen that includes a healthy diet.A daily intake is particularly beneficial to smokers and those exposed to environmental pollutants which increase the risk of damage from oxygen free radicals.
Finally, because the natural mechanism that protects us from free radicals weakens with age, older adults need to insure that tomato phytonutrients are a part of their daily diet.
Why you should opt for Vitality Tomato Lycopin?
Standardization is a quality assurance process that guarantees that each and every capsule contains the same quantity of an important phytonutrient marker. The tomato extract in Vitality Tomato Lycopin is scientifically standardized to contain 6% lycopene.
Lycopene is the marker for standardization because of its importance to good health and because it occurs naturally in tomatoes in relatively large quantity. Lycopene gives the tomato its typical red color. It is an important antioxidant with a unique ability to inactivate or "quench" free radicals that can damage our cells.
The carefully patenteted manufacturing process also assures that all the phytonutrients naturally present in the tomato oleoresin will be preserved in Tomato Lycopin and this means added health benefits for you.
