Abstract | Oxidative stress and ROS generation which induced via free radicals which up-raised by consumption of oxidized oils rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, triggers inflammatory changes, DNA damage and oxidative induced tissue damage mainly in liver and kidney. Several feed additives were used to counteract such type of cellular stressors especially those which have antioxidant properties. In our current study, we checked the benefits of using lactobacillus acidophilus which are considered as feed additives and a novel inhibitor of food-induced oxidative stress. Our results confirmed the nobility of the lactobacillus acidophilus in counteracting and prevention of all cellular damage especially in liver and kidney which induced by oxidized oils consumed by quails. Furthermore its ability to reduce cholesterol levels in the blood and creating a balance between the pro-oxidant and the antioxidant levels. Our results strongly suggested the lactobacillus acidophilus can act as a potent prophylactic inhibitor of the cellular oxidative stress induced by the oxidized oils in food.
