2 Antioxidant Nutrients Benjamin Caballero, MD, PhD Johns Hopkins University

3 Section A Antioxidant Nutrients

4 Antioxidant Nutrients Ascorbic acid Alpha-tocopherol Beta-carotene Selenium Manganese 4

5 Oxidants and Antioxidants Pro-Oxidants Substrate oxidation Antimicrobial defense Radiation Sunlight Ionized compounds Aging Oxygen Antioxidants Free radical scavengers: Extracellular/ circulating Cellular Cytosolic Membrane-bound 5

6 What Is a Free Radical? An unbound compound (i.e., free) having one or more unpaired electrons R O H O H Hydroxyl group (good guy) Hydroxyl radical (bad guy) 6

7 Examples of Free Radicals and their Half-Lives Hydroxyl radical HO 1 x 10-9 sec. Singlet oxygen 1 1 x 10-6 O2 Alkoxyl radical RO 1 x 10-6 Peroxyl radical ROO 7 Semiquinone radical Q - days 7

8 Free Radical Formation Oxidation of substrates with high oxygen affinity (for example, fatty acids) Microbial lysis Environmental exposure (sunlight, radiation, high-oxygen levels) 8

9 Antioxidant Systems of Physiological Relevance in Humans Water-Soluble Ascorbate Glutathione Urate Bilirubin 9

10 Antioxidant Systems of Physiological Relevance in Humans Lipid-soluble Alpha-tocopherol Beta-carotene Lycopene Lutein Zeaxanthin Ubiquinol-10 10

11 Antioxidant Systems in Cells 11

12 Antioxidant Defense Processes Prevention Balance between oxidative load and antioxidant function Interception Local antioxidant levels Repair Mostly enzymatic 12

13 Antioxidant Defense Processes Prevention Vitamin E, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene Interception Vitamin E, glutathione, superoxide dismutase Repair DNA repair system, reductases 13

14 Role of Nutrients in Antioxidant Systems Vitamin E Protects lipids from the cell membrane bilayer from attack by free radicals Vitamin C Quenches 1 O2 in cytosol Recycles vitamin E after it captures free radicals 14

15 Role of Nutrients in Antioxidant Systems Carotenoids Beta-carotene quenches 1 O2; may also inhibit free-radicalgenerating reactions Autoregenerate with release of thermal energy 15

16 Role of Nutrients in Antioxidant Systems Selenium Constituent of glutathione peroxidase Manganese Constituent of superoxide dismutase (MnSOD) Copper, zinc Constituents of superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD) 16

17 Antioxidant Mechanism of Vitamin E LOOH k ~ 10 2 LOO Chain reaction! Vitamin C 17

18 Protective Intake Levels of Antioxidant Nutrients Protective level * RDA Vitamin C >600 mg 60 Vitamin E >200 IU 10 Selenium µg 70 * Daily intakes associated with a risk reduction of 25% or more 18
