Lycored launches extract to support men’s prostate health

September 9, 2020

Lycored launched Lycocomfort to holistically support men’s urinary comfort and promoting better sleep.

Lycored (Be'er Sheva, Israel) launched an extract that holistically supports men’s urinary comfort and promoting better sleep, Lycocomfort, made with a standardized tomato extract and natural phytosterols shown to have a positive effect on symptoms associated with prostate discomfort.

“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, in a press release. “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.”

According to Lycored’s research, 85% of men who have experienced a prostate problem suffer from an increased need to urinate at night. In addition, 96% of survey respondents said they consider sleep to be important or very important to their quality of life. 

Lycocomfort is non-GMO, vegan, and allergen-free, and suitable for clean-label formulas. The solution creates a naturally occurring synergy through lycopene, phytoene, phytofluene, beta-carotene, and vitamin E. It is also enriched with natural phytosterols associated with the relief of the urinary symptoms and urinary flow problems caused by an enlarged prostate gland.1

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.2 Pre-clinical studies also indicate that lycopene may control and balance prostate cell growth more effectively in synergy with phytoene and phytofluene.3
