Product Description

● Lycopene, a carotenoid found in plant foods, is also a red pigment. Dark red needle-like crystals, soluble in chloro form, benzene and fats, but not in water. It is unstable to light and oxygen, and turns brown when it meets iron. Molecular formula C40H56, relative molecular mass 536.85. There are 11 conjugated double bonds and 2 non-conjugated double bonds in the molecular structure, forming a linear hydrocarbon. There is no physiological activity of vitamin A, but it has a strong antioxidant function. The content of ripe red plant fruits is higher, especially in tomatoes, carrots, watermelons, papaya and guava. It can be used as a pigment in food processing, and it is also often used as a raw material for antioxidant health food.

Chemical Composition

● It is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, carotene and various elements such as calcium, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper and iodine. It also contains protein, sugar, organic acids, cellulose .Tomato extract is extracted and refined from the natural plant tomato. Its active ingredient is lycopene. Tomato extract, also known as Lycopene, is a carotenoid and belongs to the same family as beta-carotene. According to the latest scientific research, tomato extract is not only a basic nutrient for the human body, but also has unique pharmacological effects in increasing human immune function, inhibiting mutagenesis, and antioxidant.

Health Benefits

1. Lowering blood pressure and blood lipid
Tomato extract vitamin c, lycopene and fruit acid, can reduce blood cholesterol, is very good for hyperlipidemia, can prevent atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. In addition, it contains a large amount of potassium, alkaline minerals and mercuride, which can promote the discharge of sodium salt in the blood, and has the effect of reducing blood pressure, diuresis and deswelling. Lycopene has a good auxiliary therapeutic effect on hypertension and kidney disease. Linoleic acid can reduce blood fat and prevent arteriosclerosis.

2. Protect your cardiovascular system and reduce heart disease
Tomato extract contains a lot of antithrombotic elements -- flavonoids, can prevent small blood clots. In addition, the yellow gelatinous substance around tomato seeds (tomato factor) is an effective ingredient in preventing tiny blood clots, preventing platelets from clotting in the blood and protecting endothelial cells in blood vessels.

3. Delay aging and prevent cancer
Tomatoes contain antioxidant vitamin E, lycopene and glutathione, which can remove free radicals in the body, protect cells and prevent cancer. According to studies, long-term consumption of tomatoes and their products can reduce the risk of pancreatic, rectal, laryngeal, oral, prostate, breast and other cancers.

4. Help digestion and reduce bloating and accumulation
The dietary fiber, malic acid, citric acid and other organic acids and vitamins in tomato extract can also increase the acidity of gastric juice, help gastric juice digest food, reduce bloating and food accumulation, prevent constipation, adjust gastrointestinal function, and help gastrointestinal disease rehabilitation.

5. Enhance the body's immunity
Lycopene can protect phagocytes from oxidative damage, promote T and B lymphocyte proliferation, stimulate T cell function, and reduce oxidative damage of lymphocyte DNA. Lycopene can promote the secretion of interleukin 2(LI-2) and interleukin 4(IL-4), and improve the immunity of the elderly. It is suggested that lycopene can promote the main indexes of non-specific cellular immunity.

6. Antioxidant effects
The antioxidant effect of antioxidants can be achieved by inhibiting the production of free radicals, directly scavenging free radicals, and even by increasing the level of endogenous antioxidants. Singlet oxygen and free radicals peroxides are both reactive oxygen species produced in the body and have been linked to cancer, cardiovascular disease, and age-related diseases. All can react with biomacromolecules in the body, such as DNA, proteins or lipids, to impair their function. The antioxidant effect of lycopene is mainly manifested in its high efficiency in quenching singlet oxygen and scavenging free radicals. The ability of lycopene to quench singlet oxygen is closely related to the number of conjugated double bonds contained in the molecule.

7. Antitumor effect
Lycopene has obvious anti-tumor effect. Its mechanism is related to anti-oxidation, inhibition of tumor cell proliferation, induction of intercellular junction communication and enhancement of immune function. Lycopene can prevent and inhibit prostate cancer, digestive tract cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, liver cancer, skin cancer and so on.

8. Inhibit osteoporosis
Normal bone metabolism is a dynamic equilibrium process of bone resorption and bone formation. Lycopene can inhibit bone resorption by inhibiting the production of reactive oxygen species in osteoclasts in vitro. The inhibition of lycopene on osteoclast osteoclast function after oxidative stress is concentration-dependent. The higher the concentration, the stronger the inhibition effect, and can promote the proliferation and growth of osteoblasts and increase their mineralization ability. Lycopene can effectively remove oxygen free radicals in ovariectomized rats, reduce the level of oxidative stress in vivo, reduce bone loss and delay the occurrence of osteoporosis.
