Lycopene is a natural pigment found in plants. It is one of the strongest antioxidants currently found in natural plants. Science has proved that singlet oxygen and oxygen free radicals in the human body are harmful to the body's own immune system. Lycopene is 100 times more effective at scavenging free radicals than vitamin E. It can effectively prevent and cure various diseases caused by aging and decreased immunity. People eat 100 grams of tomatoes, can only absorb 0.05 mg of which, to play a health role, the daily intake of lycopene needs to be maintained at 10-30 mg. Therefore, eating these plants alone cannot meet the needs of the body, so it is necessary to ingest a certain amount of lycopene every day to reach the amount required by the human body. The daily intake of lycopene: 10~20mg for healthy people; Middle-aged and elderly people, patients 20-30mg; Studies have shown that the dosage of lycopene can be as high as 75mg/ day.
