Are vitamins helpful?
According to a report on Adelaide Channel 9, vitamins do nothing, are a waste of money, and some herbal supplements cause liver damage. As usual, Channel 9 neglected to get the real story, did not read the thousands of studies proving the benefits of vitamins, or allow the alternative health industry to respond. Just one example: Vitamin D3 at a healthy dose of 5000 IU (5 times the normal dose) can reduce risk of cancer between 50% and 90% and high-dose vitamin C can also help significantly. If a drug company developed a drug to perform as well, they would charge a fortune and want a Nobel Prize for inventing it!
LeanMachine has not had a cold or flu or even a headache since adopting a Paleo-style diet and a host of vitamin and mineral supplements in the year 2010 at age 63. Now at age 73, LeanMachine is healthier, stronger with more energy than at any time in his life, allergies gone and never gets sick!
Back to Channel 9 and liver damage - they neglected to mention that most people on the liver transplant waiting list are there because of Paracetamol overdose, and many cancer patients suffer because of Paracetamol, causing destruction of natural L-Glutathione (the "Master Antioxidant"), our main in-built defense mechanism against cancer and most other diseases. Obviously another fake story by Big Pharma to retain their profits and keep people sick, and shame on Channel 9 to be a part of this!
Almost every one of our 60 to 100 trillion body cells has Vitamin D3 receptors, and D3 is essential for mineral absorption, bone building, immunity and disease prevention.
One year supply at 5x normal strength, under 5 cents a day! Vitamin D3 article.

Why take Lycopene?

Lycopene is an antioxidant compound and natural red pigment which gives tomatoes, watermelons and other fruits their red colour.
Although Lycopene has a relatively short history, significant research supports benefits of lycopene.
Lycopene is a member of the carotenoid family, but does not convert to vitamin A like beta carotene does, so Lycopene health benefits are due to the powerful antioxidant properties. Studies show that Lycopene is more effective than beta carotene or other carotenoids. Professor Edward Giovannucci from Harvard School of Public Health says:
"We don't really understand it entirely yet, but lycopene may have specific properties that protect the cell in a way other antioxidants may not."
Many Lycopene studies on cancer have shown some positive results in prevention, especially prostate and bladder cancers.
In conjunction with a full-complex, natural vitamin E and Green Tea Extract, studies show that prostate cancer proliferation is reduced by around 90%. Other cancers such as pancreatic, stomach, breast, cervix, and lung are also inhibited, and aids in prevention of cardiovascular disease and cataracts.

Other benefits

For postmenopausal women, Lycopene was found to reduce risk of osteoporosis.
Various studies show benefits for:
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Infertility
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cancer prevention
  • Cataracts
  • Menopause symptoms
  • Heart disease

Food sources of Lycopene

  • Canned tomatoes or juice (but NOT recommended due to BPA linings in cans, much worse with tomato acid which leaches BPA a thousand times more) tomato can crossed image
  • Tomato paste, as above unless you can find tomato products in a glass jar
  • Cooked tomatoes (preferably steamed) which increases bio-availability of Lycopene)
  • Watermelon
  • Marinara sauce
  • Pink or red grapefruit
  • Salsa
  • Raw tomatoes
Normally, LeanMachine says fresh foods are best, but cooked tomatoes can give perhaps a hundred times more lycopene.
But this is not an excuse to eat pizza every day...
