Lycopene which we have heard much about of late, is the pigment in many vegetables, most notably tomatoes, but also in peppers, watermelon, guava and pink grapefruit.
Benefits of lycopene include:
- prevention of macular degeneration by neutralizing free radicals
- prevention of coronary artery disease by keeping the bad cholesterol ventolin inhaler no prescription boots (LDH) from oxidation
- Reduction of prostate and pancreatic cancer risk by fighting free radical damage.
This is the season when fruits and vegetables are found in abundance. What a wonderful time to enjoy them and good health simultaneously.
