Zeaxanthin is a carotenoid that plays a role in protecting the eyes from the harmful effects of oxidation and light-induced damage. Zeaxanthin is a yellow-colored pigment found in the center of the macula. It is found in high levels in dark green vegetables, orange and yellow fruits, and in the yolk of eggs. In fact, zeaxanthin is the pigment that gives paprika, saffron, and corn their characteristic colors. It is commonly associated with a similar supplement, lutein. Both supplements are carotenoids associated with eye health, found in high levels in many vegetables and fruits. Zeaxanthin helps build a yellow-colored pigment shield to protect the eye cells from the harmful effects of certain light sources, such as the sun. It also protects the eyes from dangerous free radicals that form over time from oxidation.
Zeaxanthin is an eye vitamin that, once inside the body, is drawn to the eyes. It makes its way into the lens, macula, and fovea (the center spot of the retina)
Some of the dietary sources of Zeaxanthin have been studied as protective factors in Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD). AMD is the leading cause of blindness in the United States.
The condition primarily affects people age 65 and older. Some macular complications that affect younger people may be referred to as macular degeneration, but the term generally refers to Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
Zeaxanthin, along with lutein, is the only dietary carotenoid that accumulates in the retina, particularly the macular region. (Meso-zeaxanthin is the third dominant carotenoid at the very center of the macula, where zeaxanthin is dominant just off-center.) Because both substances are found in large amounts in the macula, they’re known as macular pigments.
The following conditions may benefit from Zeaxanthin and Lutein:
- Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD): Zeaxanthin and lutein supplementation may protect the eyes against the progression of AMD, which sometimes results in blindness.
- Cataract: A cataract is a clouding of the eye’s lens. Zeaxanthin and lutein consumption may slow the formation of cataracts.
- Uveitis: Uveitis is an inflammation or swelling of the eye’s uvea. The uvea is located in the center of the eye, between the sclera and the retina, and is responsible for supplying blood to the retina. Zeaxanthin and lutein may aid in slowing the inflammatory process.
- Diabetic Retinopathy: Diabetic retinopathy is a complication of diabetes that results from damage to blood vessels in the retina. Supplementing with zeaxanthin and lutein may reduce oxidation processes that damage the eyes.
