In " Effects of an Antioxidant-Enriched Multivitamin in Cystic Fibrosis: Randomized, Controlled, Multicenter Trial ," Scott D. Sagel, MD, PhD, a professor of pediatrics at Children's Hospital Colorado and director of the University of Colorado Cystic Fibrosis Center, and coauthors report a 50 percent reduced risk of time to the first exacerbation requiring antibiotics in those receiving the supplemental antioxidants.

During the 16-week study of 73 patients (36 received supplemental antioxidants), 53 percent of the antioxidant-treated group experienced 28 exacerbations, compared to 68 percent of the control group who experienced 39 exacerbations.

The researchers also found that supplemental antioxidants increased circulating antioxidant concentrations of beta-carotene, coenzyme Q10, gamma-tocopherol (a form of vitamin E) and lutein and transiently decreased inflammation (at 4 weeks, but not 16 weeks) as measured by two blood-based biomarkers of inflammation, calprotectin and myeloperoxidase (MPO).

I'm a registered dietitian.

So long as you're getting them from food only, typically, no, you can't have "too many". Anti-oxidants, such as beta-carotene, lycopene, vitamins C, E, and A, and others may offer you a host of health


Yes. Too much of something good can be bad for you as well.


Yes, the pills you get at the health food store can be too much.

It's best to eat greens like kale, spinach , and collard greens, steamed. Especially kale, which is included in macrobiotic diets.
