Lycopene Function

Lycopene Function

● antioxidation
● antitumor
● Protection of cardiovascular
● enhance immunity


Physical property

Lycopene is dark red powder or oil like liquid, insoluble in water, difficult to dissolve in methanol and other polar organic solvents, soluble in ether, petroleum ether, hexane, acetone, easily soluble in chloroform, two vulcanized monomer, benzene, oil and so on. The solution of tomato red vegetable oil is yellow orange, and the melting point is 174 degrees centigrade.

Chemical property

As a planar conjugated polyunsaturated alkene, lycopene is very active and is easily oxidized by oxidation, ultraviolet and temperature, and can be transformed from trans structure to CIS structure. When lycopene molecules change from trans structure to homeopathic structure, the color becomes lighter and the melting point decreases.


Suggested storage environment

The stability of lycopene was good under the condition of acid environment and the presence of CO2 and under the condition of temperature below 50 C, and the absorption value of the lycopene decreased significantly under the alkaline condition.


1 antioxidation

Reactive oxygen species (ROS) and free radicals are active and have cytotoxic effects. They are easily attacked by lipid, protein, DNA and other biological macromolecules, causing lipid peroxidation, DNA damage and protein denaturation and so on, which induce a variety of diseases. Lycopene has a strong antioxidant activity and the ability to scavenge free radicals in vivo and in vivo. It is one of the most effective carotenoids for eliminating free radicals and quenching single line oxygen.

2 antitumor

Lycopene has an inhibitory effect on cell transformation. It can enhance the intercellular communication function between cells and inhibit the turning of normal cells from human and animal to tumor cells. Lycopene can inhibit the proliferation of many cancer cells, and its side effects and toxicity. Lycopene can reduce the tumor and slow down the diffusion rate, especially for prostate, lung and gastric cancer, such as two times a week of tomato products (lycopene 30mg/d), and the risk of prostate cancer can be reduced by 34%.

Lycopene has an obvious antitumor effect, and its mechanism is related to inhibiting the proliferation of tumor cells, inducing intercellular communication and enhancing the immune function, in addition to its antioxidation.

3 Protection of cardiovascular

Tomato water extracts can effectively regulate lipid metabolism and have certain therapeutic effects on hyperlipidemia. Lycopene can inhibit the oxidative modification of LDL in both in vivo and in vivo, which may be one of the main mechanisms of anti atherosclerosis, which reduces the incidence of atherosclerosis by inhibiting lipid peroxidation and low density lipoprotein oxidation.

4 enhance immunity

Lycopene can protect phagocytes from their own oxidative damage, promote the proliferation of T, B lymphocytes, stimulate the function of T cells, enhance the ability of cell and T cells to kill tumor cells, reduce the oxidative damage of DNA in lymphocyte, and promote the production of certain interleukins.

5 inhibition of osteoporosis

Normal bone metabolism is a dynamic balance process of bone resorption and bone formation. Lycopene can inhibit bone resorption by inhibiting reactive oxygen generation in osteoclasts in vitro. Lycopene has a concentration dependence on the inhibition of osteoclast breaking function after oxidative stress. The higher the concentration, the stronger the inhibition, and it can promote the proliferation and growth of osteoblast and increase its mineralizing ability.

6 other effects

Lycopene has an anti radiation effect and protects the skin from ultraviolet light.
