WIN! 3 months supply of Ateronon for four lucky readers
Ateronon is a unique formulation of lycopene, derived from sun-ripened tomatoes. The lycopene in Ateronon is combined with whey protein (derived from milk) in a patented formulation which makes it highly bio-available – in other words it is easily absorbed into the bloodstream.
Lycopene from fresh tomatoes is known to be poorly absorbed by humans. One of the reasons that the Mediterranean diet is so beneficial is that tomatoes in Mediterranean cooking are often heated in oil, which makes the lycopene in them much more easily absorbed. The problem is of course that in order to get as much bio-available lycopene from cooked tomatoes or tomato paste as you do in Ateronon, you have to eat a lot of them. Our calculations show that you need about 1kg of cooked tomatoes, or 33g of paste – every day – to match taking Ateronon once a day. And before Ateronon was developed, the other problem was that supplements containing lycopene could not match up to lycopene from tomato paste in terms of bio-availability.
In clinical trials, Ateronon has been shown to be the only lycopene supplement that gives people who take this one-a-day capsule the benefit of high levels of lycopene associated with the Mediterranean diet. A recent study at Cambridge University showed a significant improvement in blood vessel flexibility for certain patient groups as a result of taking Ateronon. The findings were covered extensively in the media – including Daily Telegraph, BBC, SkyTV, ITV, Daily Mail, Daily Express. Further studies are underway at Cambridge and Harvard to explain more about Ateronon’s health benefits.
Ateronon is produced by CamNutra, a specialist natural healthcare company with a mission to improve cardio-vascular health. Its science team is based in Cambridge UK and is led by Professor Alf Lindberg, formerly of the Nobel Foundation.
