Carotenoids comprise a group of natural pigments, which commonly occur in plants con­sumed by human. Structurally these pigments are terpenoids derived from condensation of prenyl pyrophosphates. Carotenoids with cyclic ß-ionone end groups are precursors of vitamin A. Epidemiological studies have shown many associations between diets rich in carotenoids and a reduced risk of different forms of cancer, cardiovascular diseases and increased action of immune system. However, at higher doses or under certain con­dition of the organism may exert toxic prooxidant activities of these compounds.
Karotenoidy obejmują grupę naturalnych barwników, występujących powszechnie w ro­ślinach spożywanych przez ludzi. Strukturalnie są terpenoidami pochodzącymi z kon­densacji grupy prenylowej z pirofosforanami. Karotenoidy z pierścieniem b-jonowym na jednym ze swoich końców są prekursorami witaminy A. Badania epidemiologiczne wyka­zały wiele związków między dietą bogatą w karotenoidy a zmniejszeniem ryzyka róż­nych nowotworów, chorób sercowo-naczyniowych i polepszeniem funkcjonowania sys­temu odpornościowego. Jednak ich wysokie dawki w połączeniu z obniżoną kondycją organizmu mogą powodować prooksydacyjną aktywność tych związków.
