Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Canthaxanthin supplementation of the maternal diet at 12 mg/kg was associated with an increased α-tocopherol concentration in the liver of 1-d-old chicks and resulted in decreased tissue susceptibility to lipid peroxidation.

When α-Toc (300 μmol/L) was added to the oil emulsion’ the absorption of CTX was decreased by at least 50%.

Feeding canthaxanthin and retinyl palmitate but not beta-carotene, resulted in lower levels of plasma alpha-tocopherol.
These results extend to adult rats previous findings that excess retinyl palmitate alters vitamin E and carotenoid status prior to the manifestation of clinical signs of hypervitaminosis A. Additionally, canthaxanthin feeding lowers alpha-tocopherol and iron status in adult rats.
