Lycopene (from the neo-Latin Lycopersicum, the tomato species) is a bright red carotene and carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables, such as red carrots, watermelons, gac, and papayas, but it is not in strawberries or cherries.Although lycopene is chemically a carotene, it has no vitamin A activity.Foods that are not red may also contain lycopene, such as asparagus and parsley.
In addition to carotenoids such as lycopene in plants, some microbes, such as the yeast, algae, and some species of Pan fungi, can produce carotenoids, especially red hair yeasts and green algae, with relatively high astaxanthin production. This year, the genetic transformation of yeast and Escherichia coli has also made it possible for the genetic transformation of yeast and Escherichia coli. The carotenoid producing microorganisms in the province can be used for the synthesis of these substances.
In humans, the Observed Safe Level for lycopene is 75 mg/day, according to one preliminary study.
1. One of the Most Powerful Antioxidants in the World
Lycopene is an antioxidant ，lycopene’s antioxidant capabilities can protect your body from the damage induced by pesticides. Not only can lycopene help with infections, but its antioxidant properties even have been found to repair damage in the blood-spinal cord barrier in cases of spinal cord injury.
2. Helps Prevent Cancer
Also related to its powerful antioxidative qualities, lycopene plays a role in preventing and slowing several types of cancer, making any foods containing it cancer-fighting foods.Similar to its effect on breast and prostate cancer, lycopene also stunts the growth of renal cell carcinoma, the most common type of malignant kidney tumors. This also suggests it has a crucial part in prevention of this cancer.
3. Keeps Your Eyes Healthy
Lycopene also protects your eyes from oxidative stress that causes common eye diseases, making it one of the stronger eye vitamins you can consume.
Lycopene also has great effect on the chemical processes that lead to age-related macular degeneration, the leading cause of blindness in the elderly. By exhibiting both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, lycopene slowed and/or stopped a long list of reactions within the cells of the eye that are caused by or lead to macular degeneration in a study out of Taiwan published in Life Sciences.
