Lycopene is a natural pigment that belongs to the carotenoid family of compounds, which are known for their antioxidant properties. It is found in red and pink fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, watermelon, and pink grapefruit.

In protein powders, lycopene may be added as a supplement to help support overall health and to provide additional antioxidant protection. It is believed to help protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Lycopene is generally considered safe when consumed in recommended amounts through food or supplements.
