- Contributes to the normal function of the heart*
- Proven lycopene absorption through our unique, patented LactoLycopene formulation
- Over £12m spent on research and development, studied at Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (Addenbrooke’s)
- Suitable for statin-users
We developed our patented 'Tomato Pill', Ateronon Heart+, after £12 million of research into a form of lycopene, a bright-red pigment and nutrient abundant in tomatoes. Our unique formulation combines easy-to-absorb LactoLycopene with thiamine and selenium to support a healthy heart and protect from oxidative stress.
Ateronon Heart+ received global media coverage thanks to a research study at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (Addenbrooke’s). Suitable for statin users, a daily capsule delivers the same amount of lycopene into the bloodstream as 1kg of cooked tomatoes.
What is Ateronon Heart+?
The traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in sources of all kinds of healthy nutrients, from olive oil, fish and whole grains to tomatoes and many kinds of fruits, vegetables and legumes.
Ateronon Heart+ contains a unique formulation of a key nutrient from the Mediterranean diet – lycopene, a bright red pigment abundant in tomatoes.
Known as the original ‘Tomato Pill’, Ateronon Heart+ is suitable for statin users and is formulated to maintain healthy heart function.*
It’s hard for our bodies to absorb lycopene from raw tomatoes; it’s easier after they’ve been cooked in fat or oil. But to get a significant amount, you’d have to eat 1kg of cooked tomatoes every day.
So we created a unique, patented formulation called LactoLycopene after £12 million in research and development in Cambridge demonstrated its value. We combined lycopene with whey protein to make it ‘bioavailable’ – much easier for the human body to absorb.
LactoLycopene has been proven to boost lycopene levels in the body by multiple scientific studies. A single capsule of Ateronon Heart+ will deliver the same amount of lycopene into the bloodstream as 1kg of cooked tomatoes.
Ateronon Heart+ also contains selenium, which contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress – damage from unpaired oxygen molecules called ‘free radicals’ that are caused by environmental pollution, illness or stress. Oxidative stress can lead to cardiovascular disease and other health issues.
LactoLycopene was also the subject of a breakthrough male fertility study at the University of Sheffield. Find out more about our Fertility+ with LactoLycopene.
