    Absolutely yes, lycopene is one of a family of pigments called carotenoids, which occur naturally in fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes, and it is the pigment that makes tomatoes red. That is to say, the redder the tomato, the more lycopene presents. The lycopene levels in the blood may be associated with reduced incidence of prostate, age-related macular degeneration and others. The lycopene and a wide range of dietary carotenoids were detected in high concentrations in the body and retinal pigment epithelium, which leads researchers to believe that lycopene and other carotenoids, like lutein and zeaxanthin, may play a role in the prevention of age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and other blinding disorders.
