Benefits of Lycopene Oil

What is Lycopene Oil

Antioxidants are miraculous molecules that protect the body cells from harmful molecules known as free radicals. These harmful molecules can disrupt the mechanism of cells in the body by causing oxidative stress.

However, oxidative stress can develop diseases such as type 2 diabetes,  heart disease, and cancer.

Luckily, nature has gifted us with multiple sources having antioxidants to help fight against these damaging free radicals. One such naturally occurring chemical that acts as a powerful antioxidant is lycopene. Lycopene compound is commonly found in fruits, vegetables and some green plants. This naturally occurring compound gives a bright red colour to many vegetables and fruits. One such example is the red colour of a tomato.

Lycopene in Food

Lycopene is most found in

  • Watermelons
  • Tomatoes
  • Red oranges
  • Apricots
  • Guavas.
  • Rosehips
  • Pink grapefruits
  • Papayas.

Many people include ketchup, tomato soup, tomato sauce and red tomato sauce in their diets which are good sources of lycopene.

Lycopene Benefits – Reduces the risk of cancer

Many studies were conducted to find a connection between cancer risk and lycopene intake. It was found that lycopene intake can slow down or stop cancer cells growth. Cancerous growths in lungs, bones, and prostates were proved to be inhibited with lycopene intake. Later researches discovered the property of antioxidants present in lycopene responsible for the inhibitory growth of cancerous cells. Lycopene is not transformed into Vitamin A; therefore, it acts as a super antioxidant with its enhanced property.

Lycopene Benefits – It helps in keeping your heart healthy

Lycopene reduces bad cholesterol (LDL) and increases the blood’s good cholesterol (HDL) levels  LDL can develop fatty deposits in the blood vessels; therefore, its reduction can prevent any clot formation, leading to a heart stroke or attack. Research has proven that intake of lycopene food sources helps maintain good blood pressure, which reduces the risk of developing heart diseases.

Lycopene Benefits – It prevents your skin from UV damage

People who have a diet rich in lycopene sources are protected from the harmful rays of UV. Many researchers have found that lycopene intake through food or supplements causes minor irritation and burning from sun rays.
