Short Description:

Lycopene is a natural pigment contained in plants. It is mainly found in the mature fruits of tomato plants of the Solanaceae family. It is one of the strongest antioxidants currently found in plants in nature. Lycopene scavenges free radicals far more than other carotenoids and vitamin E, and its quenching singlet oxygen rate constant is 100 times that of vitamin E. It can effectively prevent various diseases caused by aging and decreased immunity. Therefore, it has attracted the attention of experts from all over the world.

    Lycopene is part of the family of pigments called carotenoids, which are natural compounds that create the colours of fruits and vegetables. Lycopene is the most powerful antioxidant in the carotenoid family and, with vitamins C and E, protect us from the free radicals that degrade many parts of the body.


    Lycopene is a bright red carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits.In plants, algae, and other photosynthetic organisms, lycopene is an important intermediate in the biosynthesis of many carotenoids, including beta carotene, responsible for yellow, orange or red pigmentation, photosynthesis, and photo-protection.

    Lycopene is commonly found in the diet, mainly from dishes prepared with tomato sauce. When absorbed from the stomach, lycopene is transported in the blood by various lipoproteins and accumulates in the liver, adrenal glands, and testes.
