Oxidative stress is a key contributor to the development of cardiovascular diseases. Bioactive dietary elements including phytochemicals, and in particular, carotenoids display antioxidant effect and substantially reduce markers of oxidative stress. Carotenoids have been shown to prevent several chronic disorders including cardiovascular diseases by reducing the inflammatory responses.

Abstract

Oxidative stress is a key contributor to the development of cardiovascular diseases. Bioactive dietary elements including phytochemicals, and in particular, carotenoids display antioxidant effect and substantially reduce markers of oxidative stress. Carotenoids have been shown to prevent several chronic disorders including cardiovascular diseases by reducing the inflammatory responses. Here, we discuss the use of traditional and novel carotenoids in prevention of cardiovascular disease.
