Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein & Meso-zeaxanthin.
Scientists long ago discovered that the carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin help protect the macular region of the eye from harmful forms of light that can cause photoxidative damage to the eyes.
Within the central macula, zeaxanthin is the dominant component, up to 75% of the total, whereas in the peripheral retina, lutein predominates, usually being 67% or greater. Typical carotenoid concentrations within other human tissues are much lower. Data show that the macular pigment increases through dietary supplements. Evidence points to a correlation between macular pigment density and a reduction in the risk for age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
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.
Now new research has uncovered a third carotenoid, meso-zeaxanthin that the aging macula requires to maintain its structural density.
Up until recently there has not been a good dietary source of meso-zeaxanthin or availability as a dietary ingredient. New extraction processes can now extract meso-zeaxanthin from similar sources of lutein and zeaxanthin.
Lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin help to protect the inner eye as it is being bombarded by high energy wave lengths of light during vision. Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein Meso-zeaxanthin provides standardized doses of theses critical nutrients, that can help preserve the macular pigment density that is essential to healthy vision.
