is a nutrient found in vegetables and fruits, particularly leafy greens like spinach and kale. Lutein acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells against the damage caused by free-radicals, highly unstable forms of oxygen. What makes lutein unique from other antioxidants, such as vitamin C or beta-carotene, is the fact that it is highly concentrated in the macula, the part of the eye that’s responsible for central vision. While lutein is found naturally in the body, it cannot be made by the body and must be obtained from food or dietary supplements.
is also not made by the body. High levels of zeaxanthin can only be obtained from supplements. Similar to lutein, zeaxanthin is found in the macula, however, it is much more concentrated in the center part of the macula when compared to lutein.
Lutein & Zeaxanthin: AMD Benefits:
Lutein and zeaxanthin have been linked to lowering the risk of neovascular AMD. A recent study published in Archives of Ophthalmology in September 2007, researched the 4,519 Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) participants between 60 and 80 years of age. They found that carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, absorb blue light that could damage the macula, by preventing free radicals from damaging eye cells and by strengthening eye cell membranes. The study concluded that a higher intake of Lutein and zeaxanthin may help lower the risk for AMD.
