Lycopene, Multivitamin and Multimineral Syrup

Product Composition



This combination consists of Lycopene with multivitamin and multimineral. It is a booster dose of antioxidants.
Free radicals steal electrons from the proteins in your body, which badly damages your DNA and other cell structures. They can create a "snowballing effect" as molecules steal from one another, each one becomes a new free radical, leaving a trail of biological carnage. Free radicals tend to collect in cell membranes (lipid peroxidation), which makes the cell lipids prone to oxidative damage. When this happens, the cell membrane becomes brittle and leaky, causing the cell to eventually fall apart and die. Free radicals can severely affect your DNA by disrupting the duplication of DNA, interfering with DNA maintenance and breaking open or altering its structure by reacting with the DNA bases. Free radicals are linked to over many diseases, including cardiovascular diseases, cataracts, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, diabetes, anemia, neurodegenerative diseases and aids in digestion. If your body does not get adequate protection, free radicals can become rampant, causing your cells to perform poorly. This can lead to tissue degradation and put you at risk of diseases.
This is where this antioxidant combination comes in. This can break the free radical chain reaction by sacrificing their own electrons to feed free radicals, but without turning into free radicals themselves.
This combination also helps slow down the aging process, which can have immense effects on your skin health.

Mechanism of Action:

Lycopene is responsible for its remarkable chemopreventive and anti-proliferative activity. Its antioxidant effects include a considerable reactive oxygen species (ROS) scavenging activity, which allows lycopene to prevent lipid peroxidation and DNA damage. Simultaneously, lycopene induces enzymes of the cellular antioxidant defense systems by activating the antioxidant response element transcription system. As another chemopreventive strategy, lycopene increases gap junctional communication (GJC), which is suppressed during carcinogenesis.



Pharmacokinetics:

Absorption: Processing of tomatoes increases the lycopene content because of the concentration operations and more importantly it makes it more bioavailable. Because lycopene is so insoluble in water and is so tightly bound to vegetable fiber, the bioavailablity of lycopene is increased by processing. For example cooking and crushing tomatoes.
After ingestion, lycopene is incorporated into lipid micelles in the small intestine. These micelles are formed from dietary fats and bile acids, and help to solubilize the hydrophobic lycopene and allow it to permeate the intestinal mucosal cells by a passive transport mechanism.
Distribution: In blood plasma, lycopene is eventually distributed into the very low and low density lipoproteins fractions. Lycopene is mainly distributed to fatty tissues and organs such as the adrenal glands, liver, prostate and testes.
Metabolism: Little is known about the liver metabolism of lycopene, but like other carotenoids, lycopene is incorporated into chylomicrons and released into the lymphatic system.
Excretion: Lycopene metabolites are excreted via urine.
