Prostate Protection from Tomatoes
Lycopene, a concentrated carotene found in tomatoes, is the most effective free radical neutralizer in the carotenoid family. Studies have shown that men who eat tomato products (especially tomato paste, which is high in lycopene), have a lower incidence of prostate cancer.(2,3) In fact, the heat-processing of tomatoes actually makes the lycopene easier to use in the body.(1)
Today, high potency lycopene is used in the holistic treatment of prostate cancer as well as prevention.
