Lycopene is derived from the Tomato plant and is a powerful antioxidant that is easily absorbed by our system.
It works by removing the potentially harmful “free radicals”.
There has been virtually no Lycopene available in Australia for more than 2 years – finally it is back and in a dose of 7mg – far better than the original 2mg that used to be available.
Lycopene has proven very helpful in prostate problems as well as supporting a healthy cardiovascular system.
There used to be a story that having lots of cooked tomatoes, reduced the risk of prostate problems; it has been found that the main ingredient of cooked tomatoes was Lycopene. One tablet is equivalent to 1kg of tomatoes!
Ateronon the name of this Lycopene is a patented formula that has been chosen and tested at Harvard Medical School, Cambridge University and at Brigham Hospital.
It has been proven to
- (a) increase heart blood flow and reduce the hardening of the cardiac arteries
- (b) reduce oxidation of LDL cholesterol (the bad one) by up to 90%. This research has been presented at the British Cardiovascular Society, European Society of Cardiology and the American Heart Association.
