LycoRed Launches Formula Targeting Men’s Health

LycoRed Ltd. is entering the men’s health category with Lyc-O-Pro, a science-based formulation targeting prostate health. Lyc-O-Pro combines curcumin, omega-3 fatty acids, zinc and a proprietary tomato extract optimised for men’s health. Lyc-O-Pro is the latest in LycoRed’s line of nutritional products targeting specific health indications. This formula for men’s health is available in the US, Europe, Asia and Australia, in either “drum-to-hopper” format, in bulk soft gels, or as a pre-packaged product suitable for private labelling.

“Lyc-O-Pro represents cutting-edge technology in clinical nutrition,” said Arnon Aharon, Clinical Director at LycoRed. “Its optimised composition provides daily support for normal prostate and bladder function and was awarded five carotenoid extraction and formulation patents.”

The key ingredient in Lyc-O-Pro is the standardised tomato extract. It contains not only the potent antioxidant, lycopene, but also other phytonutrients that act in synergy with the lycopene, enhancing its effect. The unique composition of this standardised extract offers a ratio of natural tomato phytonutrients that deliver the greatest prostate health benefit from lycopene as scientific research suggests. The important balancing of these phytonutrients includes a 1:1 ratio of vitamin E and lycopene, both important antioxidants for prostate health maintenance.

The standardised tomato extract is manufactured from select, ripe, red tomatoes. LycoRed’s gentle extraction process protects the sensitive tomato phytochemicals from damage. No chemical reactions enter into the patented production process. The natural tomato extract has been thoroughly tested and found to be a safe and beneficial health supplement by leading scientific authorities.

Results of epidemiological studies suggest that the intake of tomatoes and tomato products, including tomato extract, protect prostate health. Curcumin, a polyphenol found in turmeric extract, is one of the most studied and promising natural chemopreventives. There is extensive scientific support for the combination of turmeric and tomato extracts as a frontline, natural approach to maintaining prostate health. A small amount of pepper extract also has been added to the Lyc-O-Pro formulation to both increase the bioavailability and efficacy of curcumin under physiological conditions. Omega-3 fatty acids and zinc round out the Lyc-O-Pro formula that offers a natural approach to maintaining normal prostate function.
