Essential to help prevent cancer, antioxidants are our body's front line of defense against free radicals. Whenever we breathe, we inhale oxygen and generate free radicals within the body - these are atoms that have at least one unpaired electron, thus making them unstable and highly reactive.

Many recent studies have focused on the role of antioxidants in the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease. One such antioxidant is lycopene which is a major red pigment in tomatoes.
