Bone Suckin’ Sauce is Rich in Lycopene

Bone Suckin' Sauce received the only A+ in Health Magazine for Barbecue Sauces and Rated #1 by Newsweek so you know we know health!

Lycopene, an antioxidant responsible for the red pigment of tomatoes and tomato products, is the subject of ongoing studies showing that regular consumption is strongly linked with significant reduction of certain cancers and the incidence of heart attack, as well as reduction of age-related macular degeneration, the most common form of blindness in the elderly. Bone Suckin Sauce is an excellent source of lycopene; other sources include rosehip, red grapefruit, guava and watermelon, however, processed tomato products such as Bone Suckin’ Sauce are usually the highest food sources of dietary lycopene. Lycopene’s ability to fight free radicals in the body and inhibit DNA oxidation are what makes it a valuable road block to cancer cell production.

Adding Bone Suckin’ Sauce or other cooked tomato products to your diet just twice a week provides enough lycopene to help prevent and repair damage to cells. The lycopene in tomatoes is converted during heat processing, making it 2 ½ times more easily absorbed if processed into a sauce, juice, or paste than if consumed from a raw tomato. As lycopene levels in the blood increase, the oxidation levels of lipoprotein, protein, and DNA compounds go down, lowering the risk of cancer and heart disease.

According to one Harvard Medical School study, twice weekly consumption of cooked tomato products such as Bone Suckin’ Sauce is associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer of up to 34%. Of 46 fruits and vegetables evaluated, only tomatoes showed a relationship to reduced prostate cancer risk. High levels of lycopene in the blood have also been shown to reduce incidence of prostate, digestive tract, breast, lung, cervical, bladder, skin, and breast cancer. A study conducted by the University of North Carolina showed men with high levels of lycopene were half as likely to have a heart attack as men with low levels.

Add Bone Suckin’ Sauce to your diet at least twice a week to maximize the health benefits of Lycopene while keeping your meals great tasting and simple to prepare.
