Several lines of evidence suggest that oxidatively modified low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is atherogenic, and that atherosclerosis can be attenuated by natural antioxidants, which inhibit LDL oxidation. This study was conducted to determine the effect of tomato lycopene alone, or in combination with other natural antioxidants, on LDL oxidation. LDL (100 microg of protein/ml) was incubated with increasing concentrations of lycopene or of tomato oleoresin (lipid extract of tomatoes containing 6… Expand
Bioactive Compounds of Cooked Tomato Sauce Modulate Oxidative Stress and Arachidonic Acid Cascade Induced by Oxidized LDL in Macrophage Cultures
TLDR
It is demonstrated that both phenolic compounds and both carotenoids studied were able to inhibit low density lipoproteins (LDL) oxidation, as well as oxidative stress and eicosanoid production induced by oxidized LDL (oxLDL), in macrophage cultures. Expand
Combined Effects of Curcumin and Lycopene or Bixin in Yoghurt on Inhibition of LDL Oxidation and Increases in HDL and Paraoxonase Levels in Streptozotocin-Diabetic Rats
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the beneficial effect of curcumin and carotenoid mixtures as a supplementation having antioxidant and antiatherogenic potentials, thus appearing as an interesting strategy to be studied as a complementary therapy for diabetic complications. Expand
Synergistic Anti-Oxidative Effects of Lycopene with Other Bioactive Compounds
Lycopene belongs to the carotenoid family, which has more than 700 members. In human serum, only 14 caroteinoids have been identified, and, among these, lycopene was the most abundant. Lycopene isExpand
Lycopene in association with α-tocopherol or tomato lipophilic extracts enhances acyl-platelet-activating factor biosynthesis in endothelial cells during oxidative stress
Lipophilic compounds contained in tomato can prevent cardiovascular diseases by modulating the atherogenic processes in vascular endothelium mediated by oxidized low-density lipoproteins (LDLs). WeExpand
THE SCAVENGING CAPACITY OF COMBINATIONS OF LYCOPENE, β‐CAROTENE, VITAMIN E, AND VITAMIN C ON THE FREE RADICAL 2,2‐DIPHENYL‐1‐PICRYLHYDRAZYL (DPPH)
Lycopene, a very powerful antioxidant present in fruits and vegetables, is the most efficient quencher of singlet oxygen among the carotenoids. There are other natural antioxidants such asExpand
Synergistic effects of phenolics and carotenoids on human low-density lipoprotein oxidation.
TLDR
It is shown that the quercetingylcoside rutin is able to inhibit copper-induced formation of conjugated dienes and loss of tryptophan fluorescence in LDL, which is likely due to different allocation of the antioxidants in the LDL-particle and to different mechanisms of antioxidant action. Expand
The synergistic anti-inflammatory effects of lycopene, lutein, β-carotene, and carnosic acid combinations via redox-based inhibition of NF-κB signaling.
TLDR
It is surmised that the anti-inflammatory action of the phytonutrient combinations used probably resides in their antioxidant properties, because they caused an immediate, efficient, and synergistic inhibition of LPS-induced internal superoxide production leading to a marked decrease in ERK and NF-κB activation. Expand
The anti-inflammatory effect of lycopene complements the antioxidant action of ascorbic acid and α-tocopherol
Tomato foods contain bioactive compounds, such as lycopene, ascorbic acid and α-tocopherol, which are assumed to show synergistic effects. The aim of the study was to investigate this presumedExpand
The scavenging capacity and synergistic effects of lycopene, vitamin E, vitamin C, and β-carotene mixtures on the DPPH free radical
The biological activity of lycopene can be enhanced by the presence of these other active antioxidants such as β-carotene, vitamin E, and vitamin C. Since many of these natural antioxidants areExpand

The antioxidative effects of the isoflavan glabridin on endogenous constituents of LDL during its oxidation.
TLDR
The in vivo and in vitro reduction of the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation obtained with glabridin, may be related to the absorption or binding of gl abridin to the LDL particle and subsequent protection of LDL from oxidation by inhibiting the formation of lipid peroxides and oxysterols, and by protecting LDL associated carotenoids.

Hypocholesterolemic effect of lycopene and beta-carotene is related to suppression of cholesterol synthesis and augmentation of LDL receptor activity in macrophages.
TLDR
It is concluded that dietary supplementation of carotenoids may act as moderate hypocholesterolemic agents, secondary to their inhibitory effect on macrophage 3-hydroxy-3-methyl glutaryl coenzyme A (HMGCoA) reductase, the rate limiting enzyme in cholesterol synthesis. Expand
