Of the fourteen known carotenoids, lycopene, the red pigment in tomatoes, is a potent anti-oxidant, and one of the most abundant carotenoids in human blood and tissue.
Prostate cancer (PC) is the second leading cause of death among men in the western world. Oxidative damage from free radicals is a proposed contributing factor in the development of cancer. In PC patients, oxidative stress markers are higher, and serum and prostate tissue concentrations of lycopene are lower, than in healthy subjects. Currently, the strongest known dietary risk factor for prostate cancer is lycopene deficit.
Longevity Science LycoMax contains the form of lycopene identical to the one used in most successful clinical studies. Other products may be derivations of lycopene dissimilar from what was used in these studies. Each capsule of Lycomax contains 15mg of natural, tomato source lycopene, micro-encapsulated with 85mg of tomato lipids which enhance the absorption of the lycopene.
