WHAT IS ATERONON?
Developed at Cambridge University in the U.K., Ateronon is a natural one-a-day health supplement containing a patented lycopene-whey complex (LactoLycopene) providing 7mg of easily absorbed (bioavailable) lycopene in each capsule. Ateronon also includes thiamine, which is known to contribute to healthy heart function and selenium, which is a recognized antioxidant.
One capsule contains the equivalent lycopene content of 1kg (2.2lb) of cooked tomatoes.
WHAT IS LACTOLYCOPENE?
LactoLycopene is the name given to Ateronon’s unique patented lycopene formulation, a combination lycopene and whey protein.
In a study at Cambridge University, LactoLycopene was shown to be easily absorbed into the bloodstream and readily taken up by the body, so that its health benefits could be reliably delivered.
WHAT IS BIOAVAILABILITY AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
Bioavailability refers to how easily an ingredient is absorbed into the body.
Lycopene’s large crystalline structure is one of the reasons that it is not easily absorbed by the body. Ateronon’s patented formulation reduces the crystal size, so enabling easier absorption.
A recent study at Cambridge University showed that in volunteers taking Ateronon, lycopene levels in the blood rose between 60% and 100% within 2 months. No other lycopene product has ever been shown to be as effective.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE ATERONON?
One capsule of Ateronon should be taken daily to build up and maintain the level of lycopene in the blood.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I STOP TAKING ATERONON?
If you stop taking Ateronon, the lycopene levels in your body will drop and will, in the absence of any other dietary changes, revert to the levels that existed before you began taking Ateronon. To maintain levels of lycopene in the body, Ateronon should be taken daily.
WHEN IS IT BEST TO TAKE ATERONON?
Ateronon is best taken with food, although its unique LactoLycopene formulation ensures that the lycopene is absorbed well, even when taken without food. We would recommend it is taken after a meal daily at approximately the same time of day.
WHY IS ATERONON MORE EXPENSIVE THAN SOME OTHER LYCOPENE PRODUCTS?
Ateronon is the result of many years work in the laboratory and clinic. It is made to pharmaceutical standards to ensure that lycopene levels are high, stable and consistent in every batch. Packaging (including a triple layer foil blister pack to prevent the degradation of lycopene) is of a high quality. Very few, if any, other lycopene or health supplement products are made to this standard and with this level of research behind them.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF LYCOPENE IN ATERONON?
Lycopene has been widely studied by scientists for many years. Researchers have found it to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It was these findings that encouraged the CamNutra team to develop a bioavailable formulation of lycopene.
CamNutra’s study* with Ateronon at Cambridge University in the UK has shown that it improves blood flow in arterial vessels.
A Finnish study* observed that people with high levels of lycopene in the blood are 50% less likely to suffer a stroke.
HOW SOON WILL I BENEFIT AFTER TAKING ATERONON?
It depends on a number of factors, including what your lycopene level was before you began taking Ateronon. For almost all of us, lycopene levels will be noticeably improved after 4 weeks.
CAN I GET LYCOPENE FROM MY DIET?
Although cooking tomatoes with oil helps to makes lycopene more easily absorbed, not many of us can manage to eat on a daily basis the quantity of tomatoes required (2.2 lbs!) that is needed to provide health benefits.
Taking Ateronon provides a natural, safe and convenient way for you to obtain optimal health benefits of lycopene.
MY FAMILY DOCTOR HAS NOT HEARD OF ATERONON
As Ateronon is a relatively new supplement not all medical professionals will be aware of its benefits. If your family doctor requires more information to advise you about Ateronon please ask them to contact us and we will be more than happy to put them in touch with our expert medical board.
HOW SHOULD I STORE ATERONON?
Ateronon should be stored in a cool dry place. Do not remove the capsules from the blister packs prior to use as oxidation will reduce the effectiveness of the lycopene.
CAN I TAKE ATERONON ALONGSIDE PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION?
Ateronon can be taken alongside prescription medication. Ateronon is a natural food supplement and NOT a drug. No contraindications have been observed with subjects on medication.
CAN ATERONON BE HARMFUL?
There are no harmful effects of Ateronon, which is a natural product. However if you believe you have an intolerance to tomato or whey protein please seek medical advice before taking Ateronon.
HOW IS ATERONON PRODUCED?
Ateronon is manufactured to exacting pharmaceutical and quality control standards. Because the potency of lycopene will deteriorate rapidly when in contact with air (oxidation), the manufacturing process excludes contact with air and the capsules are packed in a triple layer foil blister to ensure that the lycopene content is kept safe and stable. Routine stability tests have shown no significant variation in lycopene content or other parameters over a 4 year analysis period.
HOW LONG DOES DELIVERY TAKE?
Please allow 2-3 days for delivery.
