Lycopene 10000mcg - 60 Veg caps
POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT: Lycopene belongs to a group of phytonutrients called carotenoid. The antioxidant activity of lycopene has been suggested for its potential health benefits. The efficacy of lycopene is much higher than that of other lipophilic antioxidants in that the potent antioxidant molecule is especially effective at scavenging reactive oxygen species singlet oxygen. Zenith Nutrition Lycopene is a vegetarian dietary supplement which is manufactured in a GMP-certified unit and has gone through extensive testing for purity and potency.
STRENGTHENS IMMUNE SYSTEM: The body is continuously exposed to free radicals and reactive oxygen species, both from external sources and endogenously generated sources. Effective immunity protects against pathogens, enables wound healing and tissue repair. Daily supplementation with lycopene attenuates oxidative stress and is believed to promote immune system. Lycopene protects phagocytes from oxidative damage, promotes T-lymphocyte proliferation and secretion of immunoreactive cytokines, enhance the functioning of phagocyte, and natural killer cells.
HELPS MAINTAIN STRONG BONES: Bones support and protect the soft tissues and organs of our body. They are composed of several types of cells and they are constantly being remodelled. Lycopene is a kind of carotenoid that has a higher antioxidant capacity to reduce oxidative stress caused by exercise or physical activity. Lycopene supplementation is especially beneficial to elderly people and postmenopausal women. Studies suggest that lycopene supports bone-forming cells in our body called osteoblasts while attenuating the development and resorbing activity of bone destroying cells called osteoclasts.
SUPPORTS HEART HEALTH: The main activity profile of lycopene for preventing cardiovascular risk includes antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, protective endothelial effects, the ability to improve the metabolic effect, reduce arterial stiffness. Low serum levels of lycopene are correlated with early signs of heart health risk. Studies suggest that lycopene can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by modulating low-density lipoprotein oxidation. Lycopene modulates the production of antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase and catalase and prevents the oxidative stress.
PROMOTES SKIN HEALTH: Our skin is the intricate part of the body’s defence. Skin cells are constantly being hit with radiation from the sun, appliances, and harmful pollutants in our atmosphere. One of the actively investigated potential benefits of lycopene is its photoprotective action against UV-induced damage to the skin. Lycopene enhances skin resilience, allowing skin cells to better cope with the environment. Lycopene may strengthen the skin by inhibiting the activity of enzymes involved in the destruction and breakdown of collagen. Lycopene down-regulates collagenase and helps maintain natural firmness.
SUPPORTS EYE HEALTH: The weakened antioxidant defence is attributed to poor vision and development of cataract. Boosting your antioxidant levels of lycopene is known for reducing the risk of eye-related diseases. It effectively prevents sugar-induced morphological changes and modulates antioxidant status of human lens epithelial cells. Some research has found that people with low lycopene levels are almost twice as likely to develop age-related macular degeneration compared to people with high levels. The potential role of lycopene in the prevention of cataract is well-established.
