Zeaxanthin is a carotenoid pigment produced in algae and in some plants by hydroxylation of the beta-carotene present in the egg yolk. According to several studies, an optimal intake of zeaxanthin would contribute to good eye health. In particular, zeaxanthin would support the well-being of the retina and especially of the macula (the central area of the retina of the human eye, the most sensitive to light stimuli) and of the fovea (concentric region within the macula). Zeaxanthin would help keep the retina healthy by stabilizing the retinal membranes, helping to make them more resistant to damage caused by light. Zeaxanthin (along with lutein) is accumulated in the healthy macula and helps maintain the integrity and health of this part of the retina that is essential for optimal visual performance. According to some studies, then, by administering zeaxanthin to individuals at risk of developing age-related macular degeneration, it would be possible to prevent, over a period of five years, the loss of vision in more than 300,000 people over 55 years of age. . Taking zeaxanthin would also improve vision in patients already suffering from macular disease. Finally, according to other researches, taking zeaxanthin would also prevent the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration.
