Oxidative stress has been considered universally and un –deniably implicated in the pathogenesis of all major diseas- es , including those of the cardiovascular system.oxidative stress activate transcriptional messengers,such as nuclear factor – B,tangibly contributing to endothelial dysfunction, the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis, irreversi-ble damage after ischemic reperfusion, and even arrhythmia,such as atrial fibrillation.Evidence is rapidly accumulating to support the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and reactive nitrogen species (RNS) as intracellular signaling mole cules. Despite this connection between oxidative stress and cardiovascular disease (CVD) ,there are currently no recognized therapeutic interventions to address this impotant unmet need. Antioxidants that provide a broad, ‘’upstream” app roach via ROS/RNS quenching or free radical chain breaking seem an appropriate therapeutic option based on epidemiologic,dietary , and in vivo animal model data. Short – term die tary intervention trials suggest that diets rich in fruit and veg etable intake lead to improvements in coronary risk factors and reduce cardiovascular mortality. Carotenoids are such abundant,plant- derived, fat –soluble pigments that functions as antioxidants. They are stored in the liver or adipose tissue, and are lipid soluble by becoming incorporated into plasma lipoprotein particles during transport . for these reasons ,carotenoids may represent one plausible mechanism by which fruits and vegetables reduce the risk of chronic diseases as cardiovascular disease (CVD). This review paper outlines the role of carotenoids in maintaining cardiac health and cardiorole of carotenoids in maintaining cardiac health and cardio protection mediated by several mechanisms including redox signaling.
