Description

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lycopene is a red phytochemical pigment found in tomatoes. The main carotenoid in human plasma, it is a highly potent antioxidant, the most efficient biological quencher of singlet oxygen, associated with decreased risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Lycopene enhances gap junction communication between cells via upregulation of connexin 43 and reduces profileration of cancer cells in culture. Inhibits cholesterol synthesis and enhances low-density lipoprotein degradation. Lycopene in skin sacrificially protects against UV-induced degradation of β-carotene.

Other Notes

REDIVIVO is a non-toxic, stable formulation of lycopene (10% dispersion in corn oil) that offers convenient handling and is dust-free.
