Why are the Lipid-Soluble Antioxidants important to health and in preventive medicine?

More than 150 epidemiological studies have established inverse correlations between serum levels of carotenoids, tocopherols and retinol and the incidence of various cancers and other diseases in humans.1,2 Accurate determination of these analytes is a critical component of any prospective or retrospective study designed to evaluate the causal relationship between disease and the nutritional status of individuals.

Dietary carotenoids, tocopherols, retinol and CoQ10 have an impact on health and are associated with reduced risk of developing various cancers and other diseases.
