Note: Many studies have looked at the effects of mixed-ingredient products containing lycopene, including Lyc-O-Mato® and LycoRed® (both manufactured by LycoRed Natural Products Industries Ltd., Beer-Sheva, Israel). According to the manufacturer, LycoRed® and Lyc-O-Mato® are lycopene-rich supplements containing lycopene and other nutrients in tomatoes, including beta-carotene. Although the effects of lycopene alone may not be determined from studies that use these mixed-ingredient products, information about the safety and effectiveness of these products is included in this patient monograph due to the wide availability of studies that use them.
