Lycopene, part of the carotenoid family, is a pigment that helps give red fruits and vegetables their color. It's also one of the free radical-fighting antioxidants. Free radicals are damaging molecules that float around in the body disrupting cells and promoting disease. Antioxidants, such as lycopene, destroy free radicals so they can't attach to your cells and wreak havoc on your hard-working immune system.
Scientific studies show that lycopene helps cells in the prostate, lung, and stomach . There is also some evidence that the pancreas, colon and rectum, esophagus, oral cavity, breast, and cervix could be aided with increased lycopene intake. This hearty antioxidant may also help reduce your risk of developing cardiovascular disease by reducing LDL ("bad") cholesterol and lowering blood pressure.
