Benefits: Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant phytonutrient that has been linked to promoting cardiovascular health, along with being beneficial to the prostate and cervix. Lycopene is naturally-occurring in vegetables having red color such as watermelon, red peppers and tomatoes.
Concentration: Seagate has developed a chemical-free method to concentrate the tomato’s natural lycopene along with all the other phytonutrients contained in the tomato. Independent lab testing of this product has provided a consistent 3% (15 mg) lycopene level using UV methodology. Seagate is one of the few lycopene manufacturers that does not use solvents to concentrate their lycopene.
Ingredients: Freeze dried tomato powder & Vegetable capsule
Lycopene controversy: There are more than 100 U.S companies posing as if they were the real “manufacturers” selling lycopene under their own brand. Other than Seagate, there are very few (if any) which grow their own tomatoes or processes their own lycopene.
