* One Proven Health Benefit: Sun Protection
In plants, carotenoids like lycopene are found in the photosynthetic complexes that generate energy from sunlight (ultraviolet radiation), and as such these carotenoids help protect plants from being damaged from excessive exposure to sunlight. In humans, they function in a similar way, accumulating in the skin and helping quench free-radical damage caused by sun exposure.
Many different clinical trials have shown incredible photoprotective benefits of lycopene alone, and also in combination with Vitamins A and C, and zinc and selenium. Lycopene-rich tomato paste has also been consumed to protect skin from the sun. Whatever the source, it is clear that lycopene can protect skin from ultraviolet rays. Of course, this includes the lycopene in products such as Sunsafe Rx, a nutritional supplement formulated specifically to protect your skin from the sun.
