“…Our findings are supported by randomized trials of carotenoid supplementation, specifically that of lycopene, in improving FEV 1 and exercise tolerance . Since some, but not all, studies have found an association between serum carotenoids and asthma, we speculate that inclusion of both normal‐weight and obese children with asthma in a study cohort may potentially mask the association, which we report is restricted to obese children. As carotenoids are well described to have anti‐oxidant effects, we hypothesize that their local anti‐oxidant activity may modulate airway inflammation, a hypothesis that is supported by earlier reports of a strong correlation between serum and airway carotenoid levels, suggesting that carotenoids may potentially influence airway physiology via its local concentration.…”

“…Results from Japanese study of 763 mother-infants dyads found that maternal β-carotene consumption during pregnancy in the highest quartile compared with the lowest decreased risk of infantile eczema, but not wheeze (OR 0.52, 95% CI 0.30–0.89) [ 21 ]. However, systematic review by Melo van Lent et al [ 176 ] did not find any association between lutein intake or status and respiratory health in children. A cross-sectional study of healthy, well-nourished, children aged 5.75 years ( n = 160) living in Vancouver, Canada investigating lutein intake and status did not confirm lutein role in cognition assessed by the Kaufman Assessment Battery (KABCC-II) and Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test (PPVT) [ 177 ].…”

“…Recently, there is increasing interest in understanding the possible beneficial effects of carotenoids during pregnancy and early life . In addition, there are studies in which possible association of carotenoids with the risk of developing diseases of diverse nature such as respiratory diseases and Parkinson's have been evaluated …”

“…Thus, high levels of carotenoids in the diet are usually due to healthy consumption of fruit and vegetables rich in such species. In this regard, it is sensible to argue that carotenoids are among a group of compounds that together act to protect against the development of several diseases, which are usually chronic and have important oxidative and inflammatory components …”
