The Benefits of Lycopene

Lycopene is a natural substance that is found in tomatoes, pink grapefruits, pink guava, watermelon, and papaya. Lycopene is a cancer fighting agent and a powerful antioxidant. It is considered highly effective in maintaining the strength, fluidity, and thickness of cell membranes. Healthy cell membranes play a pivotal role in the prevention of many diseases and conditions.

Aside from its ability to fight many forms of cancer, other health benefits of lycopene includes the prevention of heart disease, diabetes, macular degeneration, deteriorating skin, osteoporosis, and infertility.

Research also suggests that lycopene may be useful in relieving many of the symptoms associated with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), more commonly referred to as an enlarged prostate.  

Most health specialists recommend that people increase their intake of foods rich in lycopene, which is also available as a dietary supplement. Tomato extract has recently become popular as a form of lycopene supplement.
