Life Extension members were the first to learn about lycopene way back in 1985. Since then, improved tomato extraction methods have given consumers access to supplements that contain greater concentrations of lycopene at lower prices.
How To Take Lycopene:
In order to absorb the maximum amount of lycopene, it should be taken in an oil-paste form. That's why the new MEGA LYCOPENE EXTRACT is packaged in softgel caps for maximum absorption into the blood stream. Taking lycopene with oil supplements like perilla, fish, CLA oils or high-fat meals further enhances assimilation into the bloodstream.
Vitamin E and lycopene might be synergistic, so those taking lycopene supplements should make sure they are supplementing with at least 400 iu a day of vitamin E.
