Carotenoids

Harnessing the power of
nature’s rainbow.

Overview

We have a natural advantage.

Carotenoids have been at the very heart of Lycored since day one. Over the years, we’ve learned so much about them—from their ability to partner with other nutrients to the wealth of nutrition found inside each tiny molecule. Before we get into the specifics of various products, let’s take a step back and look at these powerful nutrients as a whole.

What is a carotenoid?

Carotenoids are the tiny pigments that give fruits, veggies, and other organisms their vibrant hues. The human body cannot manufacture them, making supplementation and dietary incorporation a necessity.
