Write a 4-6 page paper (not including the title page or reference page) based on the information below, using Times New Roman 12 point font, double spaced. There should be at minimum 3 references (1 journal article, 1 book source and 1 website). This will be worth 130 points.

Choose a disease state that is caused by oxidative stress and/or damage.

Choose an antioxidant-micronutrient (vitamins/minerals, listed below) that has been reported to decrease lab values (glucose, HDL/LDL, total cholesterol, insulin, BUN, creatinine, etc.) and/or symptoms of a disease induced by oxidative stress or damage. Discuss the mechanism by which the antioxidant-micronutrient (vitamins/minerals) works on the body to decrease the lab values and/or symptoms of that disease. Lastly, discuss the deficiency and toxicity symptoms for this particular antioxidant. What is the DRI (RDA, AI, and UL) for an adult for this particular antioxidant? What are the pros and cons of taking this antioxidant as a supplement?

Antioxidants:

  • Beta-Carotene (if chosen, please include DRI values for vitamin A)
