Additional information

Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally found in the human eye. The highest concentration is found in the macular area of the retina. They are also present in the lens.

In the macula, lutein and zeaxanthin naturally form a layer of yellow pigments called the macular pigments, which serves as an effective natural filter of the most damaging light (near-to-UV blue light) that reaches the retina.

Supplements containing natural lutein and zeaxanthin esters have been shown in human trials to increase the density of the macular pigments. Higher macular pigment density is associated with healthier eyes and the retention of youthful visual sensitivity.

In addition to absorbing potentially harmful light, lutein and zeaxanthin also function as antioxidants and may decrease the life-long cumulative effects of oxidative damage to the retina and lens.
