This project will evaluate the effects of carotenoid enrichment from food and supplements in healthy volunteers. We will also evaluate the effects of carotenoid-enrichment on biomarkers of human antioxidant capacity and acute oxidative stress-mediated endothelial dysfunction following a pro-inflammatory challenge meal.  Changes in biomarkers of chronic, oxidative cardiometabolic risk will also be evaluated.
