PARRY'S
TOMATO LYCOPENE

A KEY MOLECULE FOR PROSTATE HEALTH

Parry’s Tomato Lycopene complex has been uniquely extracted to contain Lycopene along with phytonutrients - inherently present in tomatoes.

Lycopene is a phytochemical that belongs to a group of pigments known as carotenoids. A proven antioxidant, Lycopene is extremely effective in neutralizing free radicals which may damage the cells in a human body. Tomatoes and tomato-based products are the major sources of natural Lycopene in the human diet. Unlike other fruits and vegetables, where nutritional content is diminished upon cooking, processing of tomatoes increases the concentration of Lycopene.

PROSTATE CANCER

ACCOUNTS FOR 8% OF ALL NEW CANCER CASES

  • Prostate cancer is a form of cancer that begins in the gland cells of the prostate, which is found only in males. It affects over 2,00,000 men each year.
  • Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men world-wide.
  • More than 1.1 million cases of prostate cancer were recorded in 2012, accounting for around 8 per cent of all new cancer cases and 15 per cent in men.
  • Men over the age of 40 need to be more aware of what prostate cancer is.
  • Incidence rates are highest in Australia, Western Europe and Northern America, whereas the lowest incidence rate is found in South-Central Asia.

A study published by the Department of Epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health stated

"The strongest known dietary risk factor for prostate cancer is a Lycopene deficit."

LYCOPENE - REDUCES PROSTATE CANCER RISK

Carotenoids play a major role in cancer prevention due to their antioxidant activities. Lycopene, a Carotenoid naturally found in tomatoes, is present in high concentrations in human prostate tissue. Studies have suggested that Lycopene may be associated with a reduced risk of cancer particularly prostate cancer. The potential mechanisms of Lycopene in relation to prostate cancer can be categorized into oxidative and non-oxidative process.

Oxidative Process

  • Singlet oxygen quenching
  • Peroxyl radical scavenging

Non-oxidative Process

  • Enhancement of Gap Junctional Communication
  • Suppression of tumor growth
  • Stimulation of the anti-inflammatory response
