Lycopene belongs to the family of carotenoid vitamins found in tomatoes and other red, orange and pink fruit and vegetables we love to eat. The body is unable to make carotenoids, so lycopene needs to be obtained through diet. Mediterranean diets are high in lycopene (thanks to all the tomatoes), where it is well absorbed aided by the healthy oils used in the cooking. The lycopene we use is encapsulated to aid absorption.
Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin found in many fresh fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C deficiency can cause scurvy, a disease not just relegated to histories of sailors in search of new worlds. Vitamin C supplements are taken to support normal nervous system function, metabolism for energy and collagen formation in the skin.*
Selenium is an essential mineral micronutrient found in soil and although required in small amounts, is vital to our health. Amongst a variety of roles, it contributes to the normal function of the immune system and helps protect cells from oxidative stress.*
Vitamin D the sunshine vitamin, is made by the body through the action of sunlight on the skin. It can also be sourced through diet. Vitamin D has a role in cell division and supports normal function of the immune system.* The Vitamin D3 we use is naturally sourced.
