LYCOPENE, MULTIVITAMIN, MINERAL NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT
This combination of vitamins and selected minerals is used to prevent or treat vitamin deficiency due to poor eating habits, problems that affect the body’s ability to absorb nutrition from food, or increased need for vitamins and minerals due to stress or illness. Vitamins are needed for the body to function well.
This vitamin/mineral combination contains high levels of B vitamins (e.g., folic acid, niacin, B-1, B-2, B-6, and B-12) and vitamin C. It also contains other vitamins (A, D, and E) and minerals such as zinc. This medication does not contain iron and has only a small amount of calcium. Therefore, it should not be used to treat “iron-poor” blood (anemia) or to prevent osteoporosis.
What is Lycopene?
Lycopene is a common carotenoid compound found in fruits, vegetables, and green plants that is responsible for the red color of tomatoes. Other sources include apricot, cranberry, grapes, pink grapefruit, guava, papaya, peaches, and watermelon.
Scientific literature documents lycopene’s antioxidant activity and its use in cancer prevention (breast and prostate), as well as its use in the prevention of heart/blood vessel disease.
