Sino-Sci Lycopene Capsule
Lycopene is a carotenoid, a natural color pigment that contributes to the deep red color of tomatoes and various other fruits and vegetables. It is only in the last decade that lycopene has become widely recognized as a potential protector against the risk of certain types of diseases. Lycopene gets its color and antioxidant properties from its chemical structure, which consists of a long chain of eleven conjugated double bonds.
Lycopene is found in a multitude of fruits, including watermelon, guava, papaya, apricots, pink grapefruits and red oranges. However, 85 percent of most people's dietary intake of lycopene comes from tomatoes and tomato products. This pigment acts as an antioxidant in the body, protecting cells against damage from the free radicals formed when body cells burn oxygen for energy. It has been found that lycopene constitutes up to 80 percent of the total carotenoids found in the adrenal glands, prostates, and testes. This concentration is thought to be due in part to the higher number of LDL receptors existing in these places, creating a higher uptake of lipoproteins in these than in other organs.
Sino-Sci lycopene capsule is made from the highest quality LRT tomatoes from Israel by advanced technology including CO2 supercritical extraction and micro-sac encapsulation. So, the final lycopene concentration reaches 7% or higher.
