The simple tomato has gained a stellar reputation due to the discovery of a carotenoid called lycopene, a health promoting phytochemical. In the body, lycopene acts like a powerful antioxidant, helping to scavenge and neutralize harmful free radicals which can accelerate aging and cause disease. Lycopene also assists in the repair of damaged body cells as well as helping to inhibit DNA oxidation, which left unchecked can lead to forms of cancer. Many studies have supported the role of the tomato in the prevention and nutritional support of prostate cancer, lung cancer and other types of cancer as well as heart disease and osteoporosis.
In his book, The Superantioxidants, Dr. James Balch sums up his studies that show lycopene's anti-cancer properties: lycopene interferes with cancer cell communications so both cell growth and cell movement were delayed in lung, breast and endometrial cancer cells.
A landmark study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute (1995) found that men who regularly ate 10 or more servings per week of tomatoes or tomato based foods had a 45% lower risk of prostate cancer. Another research group at Ben Gurion University in Israel reported that lycopene inhibited cancer cell growth of both breast and lung tissue. One large research study in Wisconsin found lycopene to be the key antioxidant that guards against age-related macular degeneration. A research team from the University of Toronto in Canada reported that lycopene inhibited the oxidation of LDL (low-density lipoprotein) cholesterol, the so-called "bad cholesterol". Using lycopene to lower LDL cholesterol could mean decreased risk of heart disease for many people.
With new research investigating lycopene's effect on asthma and osteoporosis, the future of lycopene's health applications appear limitless. In the meantime, enjoy our delicious tasting, lycopene rich tomato concentrate often and give yourself and your family a powerful, protective antioxidant boost to help ensure your best health. The human body cannot synthesize lycopene so it must be obtained through diet or by supplementation. According to the FDA's long range food study, in the U.S., commercially grown tomatoes are saturated with unbelievably high amounts of toxic pollutants. The FDA study found store bought tomatoes contain, on average, a whopping 50 different pesticides/toxic chemical residues.
In contrast, our tomato powder from South America contains absolutely no pesticide or chemical residues. Due to the pristine growing environment with rich soil and pure water, PRL Tomato Concentrate, made with non-hybrid tomatoes, contains an extremely high level of naturally occurring lycopene - an amazing 270 mg./tbsp. Taking lycopene as an isolated nutrient is not recommened, since other phytonutrients in the tomato are necessary for lycopene to assimilate properly in the body. Get the best with PRL Tomato Concentrate.
