Abstract:

Spirulina platensis, is an alga rich in phycocyanin (potent antioxidant), is effective in regulating the balance of oxidative stress. The objective of this study is to observe the impact of ingestion of a highly oxidised vegetable oil, by rats of Wistar strain. Finally, we observe the effect of Spirulina used as an antioxidant treatment, on rats having ingested a diet rich in highly oxidised oil. Physiological, biochemical and histological studies have been carried out; the oxidative stress parameters evaluated and a dosing of Cytochrome P450 2E1 was finally carried out. Following the introduction of highly oxidised vegetable oil, rats showed deterioration in their metabolic state, an imbalance in the balance of oxidative stress, an increase in serum concentrations of Cytochrome P450 2E1 and significant hepatic lesions. The administration of a daily dose of Spirulina reduces the deleterious effect of oxidative stress induced by a diet enriched with lipid peroxides.
