I purchased 50 grams of Lycopene and the 50 gram (1.76 oz.) arrived 4-7-2018. I'd also asked for a sample to try, and a tiny, tiny little iddy bit of a package arrived with a little iddy bit of the brilliantly red powder. At BS, they only had the 50 gram size at that time.
Only a tad a day (a drop) is all that is needed. But, this is a most challenging product to find anywhere. All BS had in April was the 50 g size ($30.96), now? Even it is gone. What is left is a ridiculously meager 50 grams at a cost of $20.96.
Other choices? Eats lots of red fruits and vegetables, or resign yourself to spending $20.96 each and every month with BS so you get two servings per day. I only did 1 serving. (a Tad -- so purchase the tiny metal measurement tools available at Amazon.com). They are most handy.
The benefits? Curbs effect of aging, excellent antioxidant for eyes, skin and heart health. LOVE the brilliant red color. My skin? Excellent. Always has been. Very, very, very few wrinkles. Don't look my age at all.
Could pass for being in my 30s or 40s. My heart? Still pumping and have never had any issues.
My eyes? Ugh! Been fighting issues with my eyes for around 20 years! Long term issues with eyes constantly oozing **** remains of concern to me. Lycopene greatly reduced the constant inflammation in my eyes but did not resolve my issues, but greatly lessened them.
Bilberry Powder is also fabulous for eye health but my daily dosage of this brilliantly red powder is 1 Tablespoon, and not 1 tsp as is the "recommended amount". And, only place to purchase Bilberry Powder from? Bulk Supplements. I trust Bulk Supplements and only purchase the supplements I use from them.
The other Bilberry sources are "manufactured" in challenged areas of our world who specialize in substandard manufacturing methods and know nothing about their product. Don't believe a singular word about Bilberry Powder posted on Amazon.com.
Beet powder is also an excellent source for eyes, and much less expensive than Lycopene. I have used all 3 products,(Bilberry powder (1 Tablespoon), Lycopene powder (1 Tad), and Beet powder (1 Tablespoon).
My eyes are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel of pus and small particles of stuff which feels like gritty sand. I never found (up until now) any doctors who were able to help me. So now, at 81 I am learning how to be an Ayurvedic Nutritional Therapist, so I can pass on what I learn to others, investigating products from around the world. But, I refuse to spend $20.56 a month for Lycopene powder.
