Lyc-O-Mato lycopene supplement for prostate health
Lyc-O-Mato is a trademarked ingredient that is added to food, beverage and dietary supplements, including carotenoid supplements. Lyc-O-Mato antioxidant-rich, tomato lycopene complex contains Lycopene, beta-carotene, phytoene, phytofluene, tocopherols and phytosterols. The presence of these phytonutrients sets the Lyc-O-Mato complex apart from synthetic lycopene found in the marketplace. Research shows that the activity of lycopene is enhanced through its synergistic relationship with the other antioxidants that occur naturally in the tomato. It is this antioxidant activity inherent in a whole tomato that scientists believe is responsible for the health benefits associated with the consumption of tomato.

Lycopene is the pigment that gives tomatoes their red
color, and is one of four main carotenoids normally found in human blood and
tissue. Studies show that lycopene is a scavenger of singlet-oxygen, offering
powerful antioxidant activity. Supplementation with Lyc-O-Mato has been shown to
increase serum levels of lycopene. Lower serum levels of lycopene are associated
with higher body weight, aging, and smoking.
Suggested Use: One softgel daily with a meal, or as recommended by your health care professional. Store in a cool dry place.

Serum micronutrient and antioxidant levels at baseline
and the natural history of men with localised prostate cancer on active
Tumour Biol. 2010; Venkitaraman R, Dearnaley DP, Horwich A, Huddart RA, Parker CC. Department of Clinical Oncology, Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust, Ipswich, Suffolk, UK,
The aim of this study was to determine whether serum concentrations of micronutrients, antioxidants and vitamins predict rate of disease progression in untreated, localised prostate cancer. Patients with localised prostatic adenocarcinoma on a prospective study of active surveillance underwent monitoring with serial PSA levels and repeat prostate biopsies. Disease progression was defined as either adverse histology on repeat biopsy (primary Gleason grade >/=4 or >50% positive cores of total) or radical treatment for PSA velocity >1 ng ml(-1) year(-1). Time to disease progression was analysed with respect to baseline levels of alpha-tocopherol, gamma-tocopherol, alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, lycopene, retinol and selenium. One hundred four patients were evaluable, with a median follow-up of 2.5 years. Thirty-eight patients experienced disease progression, 13 biochemical and 25 histologic progression. Median time to disease progression was 2.62 years. No significant association was seen between time to disease progression and baseline serum levels of alpha-tocopherol (p = 0.86), gamma-tocopherol (p = 0.84), alpha-carotenoid (p = 0.66), beta-carotene, lycopene, retinol (p = 0.76) or selenium (p = 0.76). No significant association was seen between serum levels of the micronutrients, antioxidants or vitamins and either adverse histology on repeat biopsy or PSA velocity. Our data do not support the hypothesis that high serum concentrations of micronutrients, antioxidants and vitamins prevent disease progression in men with localised prostate cancer.
