The antioxidant nutrients that comprised the study index were lutein, zeaxanthin, alpha carotene, beta carotene, beta cryptoxanthin, lycopene, vitamins C and E, zinc, and selenium.
Alpha carotene, lycopene, lutein, zeaxanthin, and beta cryptoxanthin hold the promise of even greater antioxidant and anticancer activities.
