- Out of the 600 carotenoids found in the human body, only lutein and zeaxanthin are specifically located in the macula of the retina of the eye.
- The density of the macular pigment and the natural protection of the macula and the photoreceptor cells of the retina are increased by the addition of zeaxanthin and lutein in the diet.
- The macula, a tiny area at the center of the retina on the back wall of the eye, is a collection of photoreceptor (light-receiving) cells, mostly cone cells, responsible for turning light into color images.
- The body, in its wisdom, imbues the macula with zeaxanthin and lutein, two powerful carotenoid antioxidants that protect the macula from the free radical damage that would otherwise occur.
Zeaxanthin with Lutein 30 capsules 10Mg
Zeaxanthin and Lutein, two powerful antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, selectively concentrate in the retina of the eye to form the macular pigment. Maintaining healthy macular pigment levels may provide retinal protection against oxidative stress caused by normal UV exposure on the aging eye.
