Natural Factors Lycopene, 10 mg, 60 softgels
Lycopene, the carotenoid that gives tomatoes and berries their red colour, is likely the protective factor. It quenches singlet oxygen (a highly aggressive and unstable oxygen molecule that does much damage as it steals electrons from other molecules) even more efficiently than beta carotene and vitamin E. Lycopene has also been shown to diminish the effect of mutations caused by radiation exposure.
A recent study found men who ate lycopene-rich foods had a 50% lower risk of heart disease than men who didn't, according to Lenore Kohlmeier, PhD, a professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.
"You would think that most coronary disease does not happen until you are in your 40s and 50s. The plaques get started in your arteries as young as 10, 11 and 12. Researchers think lycopene may slow or reverse the formation of that plaque.” Cardiologist David Bohle and his wife, Christine.
