Why women should take this
powerful prostate protector

Bone loss is a huge problem for postmenopausal women. But I’m seeing more men than ever before who are losing bone mass. So I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to protect your bones. That’s why I talk about a lot of important nutrients for preventing and treating osteoporosis in these health alerts. However, the one I’m going to tell you about today may be one of the most powerful.

This nutrient is lycopene, which I’ve told you about before. It’s the nutrient that works wonders for prostate health in men. Well, a new study says this powerful prostate remedy also protects the bones of both sexes.

In this study, researchers randomized 60 postmenopausal women between the ages of 50 and 60. They gave the women lycopene-rich tomato juice (70 mg/d of lycopene) or lycopene capsules (30  mg per day) for four months. The women taking the supplement had significant increases in serum lycopene content. That correlated with a significant increase in total antioxidant content, reduced lipid peroxidation, protein oxidation, and reduced levels of the bone loss marker N-telopeptide.

This is great news. Lycopene reduces markers associated not only with atherosclerosis (lipid peroxidation), but also bone loss. In all my years in medicine, I’ve never seen anyone who eats the Living Food Diet with osteoporosis. I think lycopene is one big reason why.

Of course, lycopene is one of the few nutrients that’s stronger in cooked tomatoes. So I have no problem with you cooking them. My wife and I buy tomatoes by the case when they’re in season. We make our own version of gazpacho soup at least four days per week. I eat so much of it I almost turn red. It’s a delicious way to protect your bones.

If you think you’re not getting enough lycopene in your diet, look for lycopene supplements. The brand used in this study — and the brand I recommend — is Lyc-O-Mato. You can find it in your local health food store.
