Lycopene and risk of cardiovascular diseases: A meta-analysis of observational studies.

​Consistent consumption of foods high in lycopene may help guard against the development of cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke and coronary heart disease.

This meta-analysis investigated the relationship between regular intake of dietary lycopene and the odds of developing cardiovascular diseases. A total of 14 eligible studies was included in this meta-analysis. Researchers observed that a significant reduction in risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke and coronary heart disease, was associated with high dietary ingestion of foods high in lycopene. The findings from this meta-analysis suggest that consistent consumption of lycopene-rich foods may help cut down an individual's chances of developing cardiovascular diseases, such as stroke and coronary heart disease.
