Carotenoids have been studied extensively for their role as antioxidants in the prevention of cancer and other human diseases. Their nutraceutical significance is attributed to their well-researched antioxidant and immunomodulating/ immunostimulating actions. These actions are manifested in their ability to reduce oxidative stress and/or depression of the immune system, in conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, atherosclerosis, and some forms of cancer.
