Possible Interaction: Carotenoids and Alpha-Carotene





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Significant reductions in serum carotenoids (P < 0.05 vs. control) were demonstrated for some alleles: beta-carotene and lycopene in E2 and E4; alpha-carotene in E3; cryptoxanthin in E3 and E4; zeaxanthin in E4; lycopene in E2 and E4; and lutein in E2 carriers.

Mean levels of individual carotenoids varied up to fourfold ( alpha-carotene : 0.06 micromol l(-1) for men in Murcia, Spain vs. 0.25 micromol l(-1) for vegetarian men living in the UK).

In terms of nutrients, there were significant inverse associations of RCC risk with consumption of a variety of carotenoids including alpha‐carotene (p < 0.001), beta‐carotene (p = 0.004), beta‐cryptoxanthin (p = 0.01) and lutein (p = 0.005).
