Lycopene, the red pigment that gives ripe tomatoes its bright red colour has a unique chemical structure that renders it the "most efficient biological carotenoid singlet oxygen quencher". It has a long chain of conjugated double bonds (13 in no.) that are the highest amongst the carotenoid family. This configuration is responsible for the potent free radical scavenging ability of lycopene and for the important part it plays in the human organism defense system that protects & cures many degenerative diseases.
The composition of Lyc-O-Mato® in LycoRed that is Lycopene and other naturally present synergistic phytonutrients (phytoene, phytofluene, β -carotene, tocopherols, phytosterols, phospholipids) makes the antioxidant potency of Lyc-O-Mato® 3 times greater than pure Lycopene.
