Comments about Life Extension Mega Lycopene, 15 mg 90 softgels:
Lycopene is a member of the carotenoid family (i.e. Beta-carotene, lutein, etc.).Lycopene has been scientifically proven to be essential for human health...especially for the arteries, prostate, skin, breast tissue, and possibly for the eyes and brain as well.It has also been scientifically proven that lycopene is much more effective when consumed in supplement form or from cooked / processed foods (i.e. from tomato sauce), as heating of tomatoes releases the lycopene and other nutrients from the fiber of the tomato fruit.Lycopene has a great synergistic effect on blood vessel health (the arteries) when taken with CoQ10 and full spectrum vitamin E (both the Tocopherols and Tocotrienols).According to my reading of the scientific studies done on humans, it appears the greatest benefits come from consuming at least 30 - 35 mg. a day of lycopene from supplements / processed tomato products.I specifically like this product, because it contains the patented Lyc-O-Mato brand - the one used in more human clinical studies than all other lycopene supplement brands combined.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Poor choice of capsule
from Fort Lauderdale, FL
It's a tomato extract. Why package it in an animal based capsule, so that vegetarians and vegans cannot use it?
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
