Lycopene supplement questions
Q. What is the right dosage of lycopene supplements to take for long term use?
A. Much depends on your diet. Does your food intake include tomatoes and watermelon which are rich sources of lycopene? Most Americans do consume a good amount of lycopene naturally in their diet, therefore it is difficult to know whether a lycopene supplement is as helpful for those living in the USA as it would be for those who live in countries where this carotenoid is not consumed as much.
Lycopene in Food
Lycopene is found in high amounts in tomato products. Cooking tomatoes weakens the fruits' cell walls, which makes it easier for your body to absorb the lycopene. A half-cup of spaghetti sauce has as much lycopene as four or five medium raw tomatoes. There is no Recommended Dietary Allowance or Dietary Reference Intake for lycopene, but studies suggest that about 20 milligrams daily is beneficial. That's roughly 1 cup tomato juice. Beside tomatoes, other pink- and red-hued fruits contain lycopene. These are the lycopene amounts for some often-used products:
1 tablespoon tomato ketchup: 2 milligrams
1/4 cup cocktail sauce: 7 milligrams
1/4 cup tomato sauce: 9 milligrams
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce: 20 milligrams
1/2 pound watermelon: 10 milligrams
1 whole pink grapefruit: 3 milligrams
1 papaya: 3 milligrams
You can get lycopene in a supplement, but consuming foods such as canned tomatoes or guava bestows benefits beyond lycopene, including vitamins A, C, and E; folate; potassium; and fiber. And these nutrients may work with lycopene to offer health benefits. Find out about new lycopene research.
