This interview between Ann (Go Vita) and Sam Hunter (CEO, The Tomato Pill Company) reveals how one man's quest to resolve a health issue positively changed his life - and his business.
Everybody has 'good cholesterol' HDL and 'bad cholesterol 'LDL'. Statins would reduce the LDL levels and thereby reduce the body’s ability to accumulate fatty materials in the vascular system. However, I also learned that you need LDL cholesterol to be healthy. I felt compelled to look for other ways to help something to work with the statin even perhaps something better.
That’s when I found the health benefits of Lycopene, a powerful anti-oxidant that occurs naturally in red coloured fruits and vegetables - and is particularly concentrated in the humble tomato. The downside was - Lycopene is not readily absorbed by the body. I could not eat 1 kg of Tomatoes a day to get the lycopene I needed.
Absolutely! Further research led me to a UK Lycopene product; I consider this to be the best in the world because it is based on bioavailable Lycopene and it's this bioavailability that makes all the difference in the world.
I bought it, tried it and began to feel the benefits. It was so encouraging, I began calling other people who were buying the product from UK and discovered that they too were experiencing similar benefits.
That's right - and when the pill was first released for sale in the UK, it was hailed by the British media, this has not happened here in Australia.

So yes, I've become a true believer along with many others around the world. The Go Vita Naturopaths have known about Lycopene and its far-ranging benefits; they also understand the challenges of absorbability and oxidisation - and they are totally behind this UK product. In fact they have supported it since its Australian launch last year. So right now, I want to say a very big thank you to Ann and Go Vita for their on-going support.
