What are the other functions of lycopene? Let's take a look.

1、 Prevention of prostate disease:
The latest research results show that taking 30 mg lycopene every day can effectively prevent prostate cancer, digestive tract cancer, bladder cancer cancer and other cancers. The human body cannot synthesize lycopene. It must be taken from the diet. Eating a raw tomato can only absorb 0.05 mg of lycopene. Therefore, lycopene supplementation is essential in the treatment of prostate diseases.
2、 Anti-ultraviolet radiation function:
Lycopene can resist ultraviolet damage. Relevant experiments have proved that researchers supplement 10 healthy people with 28 mg each β- Carotene and 2 mg of lycopene for 1-2 months, as a result, the area and extent of erythema caused by ultraviolet rays in people taking lycopene were significantly reduced.
3、 Cardiovascular protection:
Lipoprotein oxidation in human vascular intima is a key factor in the occurrence and development of atherosclerosis. Lycopene plays an important role in reducing the oxidation of lipoprotein. According to relevant reports, oral administration of natural lycopene can reduce serum cholesterol to below 5.20 mmol/L. Lycopene is often used to prevent and treat hypercholesterolemia and hyperlipidemia, which can effectively slow the development of cardiovascular diseases.
4、 Antialcoholic effect:
Lycopene can relieve alcohol, which many people don't know yet. The metabolic process of alcohol in human body is mainly redox reaction, which will produce a large number of free radicals. Taking lycopene at ordinary times can increase alcohol consumption; Take lycopene before drinking, its anti-alcohol effect is quite obvious, which can reduce the damage of alcohol to liver; When taken after being drunk, it can relieve the symptoms of intoxication such as headache and vomiting.
5、 Inhibition of mutagenesis:
One of the important mechanisms of tumor formation is that tissue cells undergo gene mutation under the action of external mutagens, and lycopene can block this process and play an anti-cancer role. For example, residents in the Mediterranean region use ketchup while frying grilled fish and meat, reducing the formation of mutagens such as heteroamines in the cooking process. So although local residents like to eat fried and roasted food that is easy to cause cancer, the incidence rate of cervical cancer, prostate cancer and liver cancer is very low.
6、 Improve allergic skin:
Lycopene can greatly improve skin allergy, eliminate skin dryness and itching caused by skin allergy, and make people feel relaxed and happy.
7、 Delay aging and enhance immunity:
Lycopene is one of the most effective elements to eliminate free radicals in the body, maintain normal cell metabolism and pre-aging. Lycopene is absorbed into the blood and lymph through the digestive tract mucosa in the body and distributed to the testis, adrenal gland, pancreas, prostate, ovary, breast, liver, lung, colon, skin and various mucosal tissues, promoting the secretion of hormones by the glands, so as to maintain the vitality of the human body; Eliminate free radicals in these organs and tissues, protect them from damage and strengthen the body's immunity.
8、 Protect intestinal mucosa:
Lycopene is abundant in various mucosal tissues in the body. Long-term use of lycopene can effectively improve various discomfort caused by the destruction of mucosal tissues in the body. Such as dry eyes, dry cough, oral ulcer, and protection of gastrointestinal mucosa.
Side effects of lycopene: The experimental results show that lycopene has no side effects. It is very suitable for long-term health care. So you can take it safely.
Our body cannot synthesize lycopene itself, and we can only ingest it from food. Tomatoes contain lycopene, so eating tomatoes in large quantities can achieve the effect. Tomatoes are mild in nature, sweet in taste, sour and slightly cold, and belong to the liver, stomach and lung meridians; It has the effects of strengthening the stomach and digestion, clearing heat and detoxifying, cooling blood and calming the liver, promoting saliva and thirst, nourishing blood and promoting appetite; It can cure thirst and loss of appetite. It is one of the best foods for all ages.
The content of lycopene in a jin of tomato is 0.2-20 mg. Eating a raw tomato can only absorb 0.05 mg of lycopene.
Therefore, people will choose special lycopene soft capsules to supplement lycopene, because eating one lycopene is equivalent to eating more than 20 jin of tomatoes to obtain lycopene.
Therefore, lycopene is a good health food and health care product for both men and women, and can be eaten regularly.
