NOL, Nutraveris Online, the most efficient data solution to create, keep up-to-date and launch your products in the 28 EU member states, used for 10years by more than 500 industry leaders informs you:


This randomized, controlled, in vivo study evaluated the effect of 50 mg/kg/d of lutein supplementation during 14 days, on ethanol-induced memory deficits in the object recognition task in adult Wistar rats.

Rats were exposed to ethanol (3 g/kg/d), during 7 days, after 8 days of lutein supplementation.

Ethanol administration induced a memory deficit and increased acetylcholinesterase activity, however, it did not alter the parameters of oxidative stress, evaluated in the cortex and hippocampus. Oral administration of lutein attenuated memory deficit (Figure) and the increase of acetylcholinesterase activity induced by ethanol.

ethanol-induced memory deficits

Effect of administration of lutein (50 mg/kg), ethanol (3g/kg), and the co-administration of ethanol and lutein on the discrimination index in the object recognition task. Data are mean ± SEM, for n = 10-11 animals in each group. * Indicates a significant difference (p < 0.05) compared to the control group (Olive oil/Saline).


These results provide evidence that lutein is an alternative treatment for ethanol-induced memory deficit, and suggest the involvement of cholinergic system.
