How is Fruitflow® different to lycopene?

Share this Post

Although both Fruitflow® and lycopene are derived from tomatoes, they work in different ways.

Fruitflow®’s bioactive compounds prevent platelet aggregation, by specific mechanisms not shared by lycopene. Lycopene is a fat-soluble antioxidant, which is responsible for the red colour of tomatoes. It is associated with some health benefits due to its antioxidant properties – mainly beneficial effects in prostate cancer – but has no effect on platelet aggregation. Fruitflow® does not contain any lycopene or other fat-soluble tomato compounds.
