Seagate Lycopene-15 is a product that occurs as a result of a lot of hard work. Seagate operates its own farms in northern Baja California. As you can see in the picture above, these farms are located in some of the most isolated and driest areas that permit us to be free of any contamination from towns or neighboring farms.
The tomato plants were just planted next to the black drip irrigation lines. Due to the water shortage in this region, we must be very frugal with our well water. We use the Roma variety because it is resistant to heat and provides a good natural level of lycopene.
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.
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. Seagate is one of the few lycopene manufacturers that does not use solvents to concentrate their lycopene.
Tomatoes in this region will grow very rapidly. This new batch of young plant should be ready to harvest by August. The end result of all this work is Seagate Lycopene-15. Each capsule is the equivalent of one whole Roma tomato which provides a natural level of 15 mg of lycopene.
