Alpha-carotene, Beta-carotene, Lycopene Demonstrate Inverse Correlation To Parkinson’s Disease

A new study reveals that low serum alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lycopene contribute to increased risk and progression of Parkinson’s disease (PD). In this study, serum levels of antioxidants such as alpha-carotene, beta-carotene, retinol, alpha- and gamma-tocopherol, lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta-cryptoxanthin were measured and compared between 104 patients with idiopathic PD (Early PD (Hoehn and Yahr...
