Lycopene, the major carotenoid found in the tomato, gives the tomato its typical red color. It is an important
antioxidant with a unique ability to inactivate or “quench” free radicals that can damage our cells.
SOURCE OF LYCOPENE
The main source of Lycopene is tomatoes. Lycopene is also found is smaller quantities in guava, watermelon,
and pink grapefruit.
Carotenoids are a family of naturally occurring compounds found in many plants. Lycopene and beta-
carotene, both found in Redly, are among the major carotenoids that occur in appreciable quantities in
human blood and tissues and are believed to be important to our health and well being.
ROLE OF CAROTENOIDS IN HEALTH
Carotenoids are antioxidants. They play an important role in health maintenance by helping to reduce the
impact and minimize the oxidative damage caused by surplus free radicals in the body. These surplus free
radicals result from normal cell metabolism, pollution, smoking and other environmental exposures. The
mixture of phytonutrients naturally occurring in Redly also act as potent antioxidants.
WHAT PROTECTS THE ORGANISM FROM FREE RADICALS?
The healthy organism is equipped with a built-in defense system designed to neutralize harmful free radicals
that attack our tissues and cell components. This system utilizes antioxidants and free radical quenchers,
which we obtain from the food and dietary supplements we eat. Lycopene is considered by scientists to be
the most effective free radical quencher and antioxidant, and thus an important part of the diet.
ROLE OF ANTIOXIDANTS RELATED TO AGEING
Anti-oxidants fight free radicals which cause cellular damage creating a foundation for premature aging
and the onset of serious diseases.
