Lyvit is a rich combination of antioxidants consisting of Lycopene, Selenium, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Zinc.
Antioxidants are molecules that interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction they cause before vital molecules are damaged. Without antioxidants our bodies would rust from the inside out, in a way similar to how metal rusts after exposure to a barrage of salt or the elements. Lycopene is a common carotenoid compound found in fruits, vegetables, and green plants that is responsible for the red color of tomatoes. The antioxidant activity of lycopene and its use in cancer prevention and cardiovascular disease have been widely documented. Vitamin C is mainly necessary for cell mediated immune responses including leucocyte and macrophage functions, neutrophil motility and phagocytosis, but also for antimicrobial activity, interferon synthesis and antihistamine properties. Vitamin E is a dietary supplement which has cardio-protective activity and also used for treating diabetes and its complications. It is used for preventing cancer, particularly lung and oral cancer in smokers; colorectal cancer and polyps; and gastric, prostate, and pancreatic cancer.
