Less potent than a "regular" 10mg. lycopene tablet
May 2, 2015
"I noticed that lycopene helped me some time ago, and was delighted to find an apparently good quality product affordably priced in the Vitacost brand. I was disappointed in the actual potency of the product. I know that "Lycomato" is a complex that includes lycopene as one of the ingredients. I'm wondering now if this Vitacost product contains 15mg. each of the lycomato and NOT 15 mg. of actual lycopene. For now, I'm back to Jamieson brand lycopene."
"Having not liked vegetables, especially tomatoes, all my life, as much as I wish I did, this product made a noticeable difference in how healthy I have felt. And how I have looked, according to a few trusted friends. An excellent buy for an excellent product. Does what it says it will do- very pleased with them"
"This Vitacost Lycopene has impressive ingredients, such as the food source in the "Lyc-O-Mato." This isn't a supplement that gives you immediate and/or real noticeable results, but choosing Vitacost quality has got to be the best thing."
"I have been using Lyc~O~Mato for quite some time however this time when I tried to order it, it was out of stock and as a result I found another product that was better because it has more ingredience in it and about the same price and that is NATROL Lycopene and even though it also has 15mg of Lycopene but it also has 535mg of tomato powder which the Lyc~O~Mato doesn't have."
"Recent studies have shown that Lycopene is very beneficial to overall health, but especially important to prostate health. Men over 40 need to be concerned about that aspect of their health. Health comes in one little red capsule per day. Don't trust your heath on luck....trust in NSI."
