Tomoto Lycopene, Tomato extract Lycopene, Natural Lycopene powder



Lycopene is a bright red carotene and carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits & vegetables, such as,GAC,
red carrots, watermelons and papayas (but not strawberries or cherries). Although lycopene is chemically a carotene, it has no vitamin A activity.

In plants, algae, and other photosynthetic organisms, lycopene is an important intermediate in the biosynthesis of many carotenoids, including beta
carotene, responsible for yellow, orange or red pigmentation, photosynthesis, and photo-protection. Structurally, it is a tetraterpene assembled from
eight isoprene units, composed entirely of carbon and hydrogen, and is insoluble in water.

Lycopene is not an essential nutrient for humans, but is commonly found in the diet, mainly from dishes prepared with tomato sauce. When absorbed
from the stomach, lycopene is transported in the blood by various lipoproteins and accumulates in the liver, adrenal glands, and testes. The related
carotenoid antioxidant, beta-carotene, has been shown to increase the number of prostate cancer cases in a subset of patients, although this area
of research remains controversial and ongoing.
