Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance
between production and scavenging of free radicals,
thus compromising the cellular function and antioxidant
status of the body. Athletes, who train competitively,
experience more oxidative stress than other average
individuals which not only causes damage to cells and
DNA, but may also limit aerobic capacity. The present
study was conducted to test the effect of tomato juice
(lycopene) on the oxidative stress of athletes.
