Abstract Lutein is a bioactive found in dark leafy vegetables that may be used as a nutraceutical agent in foodstuff and an inhibitor of key enzymes of the human body such as those involved in the cholinergic system. However, its high hydrophobicity leads to low bioavailability and must be overcome if lutein is to be added in foods. The objective of this study was to evaluate the influence of nanoencapsulated lutein in the activity of the acetylcholinesterase enzyme. The in vitro study was carri...

Curcumin, bisdemethoxycurcumin and demethoxycurcumin are the main curcuminoids present in Curcuma longa L. and are known for their bioactivity. However, their low water solubility results in poor bioavailability and therapeutic efficacy. This work aimed to investigate the in vitro modulation capacity on the enzymes acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and glutathione S-transferase (GST), as well as the in vitro antioxidant (OxHLIA and TBARS) and anti-inflammatory activities (RAW 264.7 test) of nanoencaps...
