AbstractPhytosterols and lycopene are neutraceuticals that are known antioxidants and cancer inhibitors. Unfortunately, they do not dissolve readily in body fluids and therefore present unique problems concerning their uptake by the blood stream. This project explores the ability to enhance the rate of solubility of lycopene and phytosterols by formulating tham as nano- and micro-particles.
