Lycomato is a standardized tomato extract composed of carotenoids, tocopherols and phytosterols that are naturally abundant in tomatoes, a staple of the Mediterranean diet. Lycomato is made using a proprietary process that prevents oxidation and preserves nutrient integrity.
Here are some key things to remember about Lycomato:
-Lycomato supplementation has been shown to increase carotenoid levels in plasma, skin and adipose tissue.
-By supporting endothelial function, healthy circulation and reducing overall oxidation in the cardiovascular system, Lycomato supports heart health.
-Skin health is supported by increasing the ability of our largest organ to maintain its natural immunity.
-Lycomato provides antioxidant support and inhibits mediator and cytokine production.
-Lycomato not only exhibits high bioavailability, but has also been proven to reach specific target cells, which is critical to its effectiveness.
-Patented single solvent technology preserves nutrients and helps guarantee carotenoid content at effective levels.
-A carefully calibrated blend of carotenoids and phytonutrients has proven synergistic effects that target specific effects
Lycomato supplementation increases carotenoid levels in plasma, skin and adipose tissue.
Lycomato's ingredients have been chosen specifically for the synergistic properties they exhibit when combined. Lycomato is standardized to preserve and enhance the natural effectiveness of nutrients such as lycopene, phytoene and phytofluene, as well as vitamins A and E, which have skin-healthy properties. Proven safe and effective, this blend was developed to complement a healthy skin care routine. It has been shown to support our skin's natural resistance to external stressors, support the skin's ability to cope with aging caused by sun exposure, and increase its overall smoothness.
Lycopene, phytoene, and phytofluene can help balance the skin's response to environmental stress and promote a healthier relationship with the sun.
Carotenoids are antioxidants that can inhibit reactive oxygen species (RFTs) .1 They accumulate in the skin, promoting skin health and helping to maintain skin elasticity in the context of environmental stress. Carotenoids can help balance our skin's natural ability to manage the processes caused by sun exposure. The combination of phytonutrients found in Lycomato - lycopene, phytoene and phytofluene - work synergistically to maximize the benefits to skin health and wellness. The combination has been shown to reduce the intensity of erythema after controlled UV exposure in healthy volunteers. The nourishing effect of the phytonutrient combination was more pronounced compared to lycopene alone (as shown in Fig. 1) Furthermore, in a 12-week study on volunteers, Lycomato supplementation was shown to control mRNA levels of specific skin biomarkers such as MMP-1, a key enzyme involved in collagen degradation.
Lycopene, phytoene, and phytofluene may help balance skin responses to environmental stress and promote a healthier relationship with the sun.
After 12 weeks of Lycomato supplementation, Lycomato use has also been shown to help improve skin texture parameters such as skin density, thickness and smoothness (as seen below) The observational study also revealed that higher concentrations of lycopene in the skin were correlated with lower levels of skin roughness.
