Lycored has launched a new extract for men, which claims to support urinary comfort and promote better sleep.
According to Lycored, Lycocomfort is non-GMO, suitable for vegans and free from allergens.
The ‘clean-label, sustainable wellness extract’ is made with a standardised tomato extract and natural phytosterols that the company says have been shown to have a positive effect on symptoms associated with prostate discomfort.
Lycocomfort contains lycopene, phytoene, phytofluene, beta-carotene and vitamin E from tomatoes’ carotenoid-rich oleoresin.
The ingredients manufacturer says that Lycopene and other tomato phytonutrients can help combat oxidative stress and boost the body’s own coping mechanisms to enhance overall cellular calm in the urinary tract.
Research from Lycored found that 85% of men who have experienced a prostate problem suffer from an increased need to urinate at night.
The company claims that Lycocomfort can promote better sleep and ease the anxiety caused by urinary concerns during everyday life, helping men achieve a feeling of ‘calm’.
“Prostate health can become a significant issue for men as they age and often has a real impact on quality of sleep,” said Karin Hermoni, head of science and nutrition at Lycored.
“At Lycored, we know that true wellness requires a holistic approach, with healthy sleeping, eating, exercising, thoughts and emotions working in harmony.
“Lycocomfort was developed to support peaceful sleep and may help ensure we get the support we need to achieve a sense of overall calm.”
The extract’s bioavailable mix of tomato carotenoids is designed to support healthy ageing throughout all stages of life.
Earlier this year, Lycored announced that it had more than doubled its production of lycopene following a three-year multi-million-dollar investment.
