In this study, we used in this study H2O2 to construct the cell damage model and assess the antioxidant activity of C3G and C3G liposomes on Caco-2 cells cultured in the 3D model. We also measured the cell viability, cell morphology, and activity of glutathione (GSH), superoxide dismutase (SOD), total antioxidant capacity (T-AOC), and malondialdehyde (MDA) content of Caco-2 cells treated with H2O2, C3G, and C3G liposomes. Results showed that cells cultured in the 3D culture model formed a 3D structure and tight spheroids and showed increased cell activity and IC50. The C3G and C3G liposomes can enhance the activity of GSH, SOD, and T-AOC but decrease the MDA content. At the same time, the effect was more obvious in the 3D cell culture model than in the cells cultured in the 2D model. This study revealed that the results obtained from the 2D cell model may be inaccurate compared with the results obtained from the 3D cell model. A realistic mechanism study of antioxidant activity of C3G and C3G liposomes in the 3D cell model, which acts as an intermediate stage bridging the in vitro 2D and in vivo models, was observed.
