NOW Lycopene protects against cellular breakdown. Our Lycopene supplement contains a natural tomato extract rich in lycopene with potent anti-oxidant properties.

What is Lycopene?

Lycopene is a natural compound found in tomatoes and other fruits and vegetables that gives them their color. It is a “carotenoid” which means it's a highly colored yellow, red or orange pigment.

Health Benefits of NOW Lycopene

As a major carotenoid antioxidant in human blood, lycopene protects against the breakdown of lipids, proteins, and DNA. It has been shown that this strong antioxidant blocks free radicals that can damage cells.

Why NOW Lycopene Supplement is a Good Choice

Lycopene works through a number of mechanisms to support cardiovascular health and immune function. In addition, epidemiological studies have determined that natural Lycopene may be particularly important for the support of prostate health, as well as for the health of the digestive tract.
Choose our high potency Lycopene softgel which naturally contains small amounts of additional carotenoid and tocopherol antioxidants.

  • Reliable and relatively consistent scientific data showing a substantial health benefit.
  • Contradictory, insufficient, or preliminary studies suggesting a health benefit or minimal health benefit.
  • For an herb, supported by traditional use but minimal or no scientific evidence. For a supplement, little scientific support.

Our proprietary “Star-Rating” system was developed to help you easily understand the amount of scientific support behind each supplement in relation to a specific health condition. While there is no way to predict whether a vitamin, mineral, or herb will successfully treat or prevent associated health conditions, our unique ratings tell you how well these supplements are understood by the medical community, and whether studies have found them to be effective for other people.

For over a decade, our team has combed through thousands of research articles published in reputable journals. To help you make educated decisions, and to better understand controversial or confusing supplements, our medical experts have digested the science into these three easy-to-follow ratings. We hope this provides you with a helpful resource to make informed decisions towards your health and well-being.
