structure and chemical properties

The magic of Lycopene lies first and foremost in its molecular structure. The quality of a nutritional ingredient is very dependent on the configuration and stability of the molecule, along with the ability to create many stable chemical bonds.
The Lycopene molecule is indeed long and stable, comprised of 13 double bonds (more than any other from its family: the carotenoids). Its unique structure enables the ability to cope with harmful free radicals and thus protect our body in many cases from the potential damage of oxidation.
Our digestive system can absorb Lycopene, but in order to ensure efficient absorption we should consume it with various healthy oils (natural fats i.e. avocado, olive oil, nuts) that promote the secretion of bile which aid the digestion process.
