LYCOPENE, A CAROTENOID FROM TOMATOES, MAY HELP AS A SUNBURN PREVENTATIVE.
In a small study, lycopene, in the form of tomato paste, was consumed by a group of healthy participants and a second control group consumed only olive oil for 12 weeks. The lycopene group was found to experience 33% more protection against sunburn compared to the group fed only olive oil. The lycopene also increased levels of pro-collagen in the skin, which is an important molecule for preventing wrinkles, aging, and loss of skin elasticity. It also acts as an antioxidant by preventing damage to the DNA of the mitochondria. Although the protective effects are not strong enough to replace the use of sun block or responsible sun exposure, it does add an additional layer of protection to enhance skin health.
NEEDS Wellness Team recommends Jarrow’s Lyco-Sorb Lycopene, containing the standardized ingredient Lyc-O-Mato lycopene, extracted from GMO-free tomatoes. Each Lyco-Sorb softgel contains the equivalent amount of lycopene as found in two tomatoes. Lyco-Sorb is a completely natural, lipid-soluble delivery system, formulated to enhance absorption, and has shown significant results in protecting skin, as well as prostate and cholesterol health.
