Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein & Meso-zeaxanthin.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin The pigment in the retina, known as macular pigment, is comprised of two carotenoids (yellow colors), lutein and zeaxanthin. Scientists long ago discovered that these carotenoids filter much of the harmful blue and UV light from getting to the macula in the retina of the eye. Blue and UV light cause free radical damage in the macula leading to damage to, and if un-interrupted, loss of eyesight.
Zeaxanthin comprises 75% of the pigment found in the macula (the center of the retina) which is responsible for central vision. In the part of the retina responsible for peripheral vision, lutein predominates, usually 67% or more of the pigment found there. Concentration of these pigments in other human tissues are far lower-they are concentrated in the retina of the eye.
Scientists have established that diet and dietary supplementation is correlated to the amount of lutein and zeaxanthin located in the eye with a consequent correlation between density of macular pigments and risk of age-related macular degeneration.
Certain foods are rich in these two important substances. Fruits and vegetables with a yellow hue such as corn, peaches, mangoes, and persimmons contain zeaxanthin. Lutein can be found in vegetables such spinach, kale, broccoli, and collard greens. For those people who don't eat enough of these foods, Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein may provide additional protection.
Meso-zeaxanthin Recent studies have identified another carotenoid, meso-zeaxanthin, that is needed by the aging macula to maintain its structural integrity and density. New processes can now extract meso-zeaxanthin from plant sources, similarly to extraction of lutein and zeaxanthin.
Lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin help to protect the retina from high energy light - blue light and UV light. This product provides standardized doses of these critical carotenoids to help protect your vision.
