Lycopene is a kind of carotene, as a powerful antioxidant abundant in red tomatoes and processed tomato products. It is the elemental nutriment in human body with good physiological effect. It’s may help prevent prostate cancer and some other forms of cancer, heart disease, and other serious diseases. Ongoing preliminary research suggests that lycopene is associated with reduced risk of macular degenerative disease, serum lipid oxidation and cancers of the lung, bladder, cervix and skin. Studies are underway to investigate other potential benefits of lycopene – including the H.J. Heinz Company sponsored research at the University of Toronto and at the American Health Foundation. These studies will focus on lycopene’s possible role in the fight against cancers of the digestive tract, breast and prostate cancer.
Solubility: Lycopene is insoluble in water, and can be dissolved only in organic solvents and oils.
