Lycopene helps prevent LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and hardening the arteries.Cholesterol oxidation is a major contributor to heart disease. The carotenoids zeaxanthin and lutein help lower the risk of macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness. These two nutrients can reduce your risk of this devastating disease by 35%.
