Zeaxanthin – Powder, 50g
Zeaxanthin is a carotenoid that plays a role in protection against the harmful effects of oxidation and light-induced damage. When administered to humans, it is thought that these protective effects are most prevalent in the eyes.
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. Zeaxanthin is the pigment that gives paprika, saffron, and corn their characteristic colors. Once inside the body, it is drawn to the eyes. It makes its way into the lens, macula, and fovea (the center spot of the retina).
What is Zeaxanthin?
Zeaxanthin is one of the most common carotenoids in nature, and is used in the xanthophyll cycle. Synthesized in plants and some micro-organisms, it is the pigment that gives paprika (made from bell peppers), corn, saffron, wolfberries, and many other plants and microbes their characteristic color. Zeaxanthin is considered to have potential health benefits specifically with regards to eye health.

Additional Information on Zeaxanthin
Xanthophylls such as zeaxanthin are found in highest quantity in the leaves of most green plants, where they act to modulate light energy and perhaps serve as a non-photochemical quenching agent to deal with triplet chlorophyll (an excited form of chlorophyll) which is overproduced at high light levels during photosynthesis.
