Health Info  Nutrient Glossary  Zeaxanthin

In addition to lutein, zeaxanthin is another carotenoid found in the macula, and is just as important. The only difference between zeaxanthin and lutein is the locations in which they are found. While zeaxanthin is the dominant component in the fovea, lutein is predominantly located in the region surrounding the fovea. As the center of the retina, fovea is constantly exposed to the oxidative damage from sunlight. Therefore, zeaxanthin is extremely important for protecting the macula against free radical attacks and alleviating the development of age-related eye problems. 

Good dietary sources of zeaxanthin include corn, red pepper, goji, and cranberry. Since the dietary choices are limited, dietary supplement is another good source. However, it is important to shop for these supplements with high manufacturing and production quality, such as patent products.
