The effects of dietary capsanthin, the main carotenoid in paprika (Capsicum annuum), on lipid metabolism were examined. [...] Key Method Young male Wistar rats were fed diets containing paprika powder, paprika organic solvent extract, residue of paprika extract, and purified capsanthin. Administration of purified capsanthin for 2 weeks resulted in a significant increase in plasma HDL-cholesterol (P < 0.05) without detectable differences in plasma total cholesterol and TAG concentrations. A statistically…Expand
Red paprika (Capsicum annuum L.) and its main carotenoid capsanthin ameliorate impaired lipid metabolism in the liver and adipose tissue of high-fat diet-induced obese mice
Abstract Red paprika (Capsicum annuum L.) is a widely used natural food colorant and source of vital micronutrients. The main carotenoid in red paprika is capsanthin. In this study, the effects ofExpand

Phytochemicals and antioxidant activity of fruits and leaves of paprika (Capsicum Annuum L., var. special) cultivated in Korea.
TLDR
PL, which has various phytochemicals such as lutein, chlorophyll, and γ-tocopherol, might be used in nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals for improving human health and correlate well with antioxidant activity. Expand
High molecular weight persimmon tannin is a potent hypolipidemic in high-cholesterol diet fed rats
Abstract Aimed to elucidate whether high molecular weight persimmon tannin (HMWPT) is responsible for the hypolipidemic effect of consuming persimmon fruit, the effects of HMWPT on high-cholesterolExpand
Inhibitory Effects of Ethanol Extract of Red Sweet Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) on Triglyceride Biosynthesis in Rhodosporidium toruloides
In this study, we investigated inhibitory effect of red sweet pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) on triglyceride biosynthesis in Rhodosporidium toruloides. There was no significant difference in the totalExpand
Evaluation of the effect of dietary lycopene, the main carotenoid in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum), on the in vivo renal reducing ability by a radiofrequency electron paramagnetic resonance method.
TLDR
The in vivo changes in the renal reducing ability of rats orally administered lycopene were investigated using a 700 MHz EPR spectrometer equipped with a surface-coil-type resonator and this is the first verification of in vivo antioxidant enhancement via dietary Lycopene administration. Expand
Carotenoids of Capsicum Fruits: Pigment Profile and Health-Promoting Functional Attributes
TLDR
Findings from a number of in vitro, in vivo and clinical studies provided appreciable evidence on the protective effects of pepper’s carotenoids against degenerative diseases, which might be recommended in health-promoting and disease preventing strategies. Expand
Effects of lycopene supplementation in both maternal and offspring diets on growth performance, antioxidant capacity and biochemical parameters in chicks.
TLDR
Data in this study suggested lycopene supplementation could improve antioxidant capacity and immune function, and regulate lipid metabolism in chicks. Expand
Physicochemical characteristics and antioxidant potential of paprika (Capsicum annuum L.) wine

Accumulation and clearance of capsanthin in blood plasma after the ingestion of paprika juice in men.
TLDR
The pharmacokinetics of dietary capsanthin was measured in four male volunteers to assess the bioavailability of oxygenated carotenoids (xanthophylls) and it is concluded that the clearance of Capsanthin is much faster than that of lycopene, although capsanth in is transported into plasma lipoproteins in larger amounts. Expand
Antioxidant Activity of Capsanthin and the Fatty Acid Esters in Paprika (Capsicum annuum)
The antioxidant ability of capsanthin and the fatty acid esters was examined by measuring the free radical-oxidation of methyl linoleate. To assess radical scavenging effect, the production of methylExpand
Dietary eritadenine modifies plasma phosphatidylcholine molecular species profile in rats fed different types of fat.
TLDR
Altered plasma PC molecular species composition, as represented by an increase in 16:0-18:2 PC, might contribute to the hypocholesterolemic action of eritadenine. Expand
Eritadenine-induced Alterations of Plasma Lipoprotein Lipid Concentrations and Phosphatidylcholine Molecular Species Profile in Rats Fed Cholesterol-free and Cholesterol-enriched Diets
TLDR
The results indicate that dietary eritadenine elicits its hypocholesterolemic action with modulations of the fatty acid and molecular species profiles of PC irrespective of the presence or absence of exogenous cholesterol. Expand
Lipopolysaccharide and tumor necrosis factor cause a fall in plasma concentration of lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase in cynomolgus monkeys.
TLDR
The effects of intravenous injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF) were investigated in cynomolgus monkeys and in animals fed the atherogenic diet containing saturated fat and cholesterol, the injection of both LPS and TNF resulted in a significant decrease in the CE content of LDL and HDL. Expand
[Short-term Lycopersicum esculentum consumption may increase plasma high density lipoproteins and decrease oxidative stress].
TLDR
Dietary supplementation of concentrated tomato juice significantly increases lycopene levels and HDL cholesterol and non significant changes observed in TRAP, catalase and superoxide dismutase were observed during the supplementation period. Expand
Targeted disruption of the murine lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase gene is associated with reductions in plasma paraoxonase and platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase activities but not in apolipoprotein J concentration.
TLDR
It is concluded that the concomitant reduction in HDL and apoA-I concentrations and PON and PAF-AH activities is best explained by rapid clearance of the small HDL particles found in LCAT deficiency. Expand
Prevention of N-methylnitrosourea-induced colon carcinogenesis in rats by oxygenated carotenoid capsanthin and capsanthin-rich paprika juice.
TLDR
The results suggested that paprika juice may affect colon carcinogenesis and capsanthin alone failed to inhibit colon tumorigenesis, in spite of suppression of aberrant crypt foci formation in the short-term assay. Expand
Effects of Dietary Eritadenine on the Liver Microsomal Δ6-Desaturase Activity and Its mRNA in Rats
TLDR
It is suggested that dietary eritadenine might suppress the activity of liver microsomal Δ6-desaturase by altering themicrosomal phospholipid profile, as represented by an increase in PE concentration, and that the effect of eritenine is mediated by the regulation of gene expression. Expand
Seasonal changes in the relationship between serum concentration of beta-cryptoxanthin and serum lipid levels.
TLDR
The results suggest that habitual eating of Satsuma mandarin while it is in season may influence lipid metabolism throughout the year. Expand
