|can be incorporated into egg yolks, and at these dietary concentrations, -tocopherol and lycopene may not affect the immune system of the laying hen.

|200 to 400 mg/kg diet (26 to 52 mg/day/hen)
|antitumor, ovarian cancer
|Significantly reduced the overall ovarian tumor incidence as well as the number and the size of the tumors. Significantly decreased the rate of adenocarcinoma, including serous and mucinous subtypes.

|Improved the fertility of roosters by enhancing the semen volume as well as the live sperm content and viability
|Mangiagalli et al., 2010
|Maintains oxidative balance in birds through various ways including serving as a free radical scavenger, inhibiting signalling pathways and activating host antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) and catalase (CAT).

|antioxidant, ovary protection
|Effectively ameliorated the oxidative stress in aging hen ovaries via the activation of the Nrf2/HO-1 pathway.
|X Liu et al., 2018
|showed a significant increase in glucose (in T2, T3 and T4) and high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-c) levels in the supplement treatments as compared to the control and T2. Serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-c) levels were decreased significantly in all the treatments compared to the control. Additionally, the activity of aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) as well as malondialdehyde acid (MDA) concentration were decreased in all the treatments compared to the control.

|Affected the expression of related genes, and this may be one of the reasons that lycopene can regulate fat metabolism.
|H Tian et al., 2020
|hepatoprotective, Fatty liver disease
|Alleviated excessive hepatic lipid accumulation and enhanced lipolysis, decreased the proportion of M1-type macrophages/Kupffer cells, and activated stellate cells to improve hepatic inflammation and fibrosis, and subsequently reduced the recruitment of CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in the liver. Importantly, lycopene reversed insulin resistance, as well as hepatic inflammation and fibrosis.

|Provided adequate protection against the neurotoxic effects on rat brain tissue function and structure through modulations of oxidative and antioxidant activities.
|S Farouk et al., 2021
|Significantly decreased the EE-induced rise in the serum levels of total bile acid and total bilirubin as well as the activities of alanine aminotransaminase, aspartate aminotransaminase, alkaline phosphatase, and gamma-glutamyl transaminase. Moreover, lycopene reduced the hepatic levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and tumor necrosis factor- as well as the hepatic activity of myeloperoxidase that were markedly elevated by EE. Lycopene increased the hepatic levels of total protein and albumin and reduced glutathione. In addition, lycopene improved the hepatic histopathological changes induced by EE. These protective effects of lycopene were comparable to that of silymarin

|lipid metabolism, ascites
|Alleviateed abdominal fat deposition and decrease serum lipids levels, possibly through activating the AMPK signaling pathway, thereby regulating lipid metabolism such as lipogenesis.
|X Wan et al., 2021
|200-400 mg/kg diet
|antioxidant, cold-induced ascites
|Restored the performance to levels of the positive control, lowered the index of right ventricles/total ventricles and ascites mortality. Birds reared under CT had lower serum activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GPx) and higher malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration than birds reared under the NT environment. With lycopene supplementation, serum MDA level significantly decreased and the activity of SOD and GPx increased. Blood concentration of haematocrit, haemoglobin and red blood cells were decreased by the highest lycopene supplementation to a level comparable to NT. Moreover, increasing dietary lycopene level suppressed serum concentrations of cholesterol and enhanced high-density lipoproteins levels in blood. In conclusion, lycopene supplementation alleviates adverse effects of cold stress on performance through modulating activity of antioxidant enzymes in broiler chickens.
