Of the more than 600 carotenoids found in nature, only lutein and zeaxanthin isomers are located in the eye – specifically the macula. Acting as primary filters of high-energy blue light, lutein and zeaxanthin isomers support visual health and acuity by protecting against oxidative stress and inflammation.
Award-winning, Lutemax 2020 is a naturally-derived marigold extract providing all three macular carotenoids—lutein and enhanced levels of both zeaxanthin isomers (RR-and RS [meso]-zeaxanthin)—at the same 5:1 ratio as found naturally in the diet. This unique combination of lutein with zeaxanthin isomers makes Lutemax 2020 a convenient, cost effective way to boost the beneﬁts of your eye health formulation.
Healthy eyes for a lifetime starts with the macular carotenoids.
3R, 3’R zeaxanthin is one of the three principle carotenoids in the eye and supports eye health and visual function as a potent antioxidant and protector of lipid membranes against singlet oxygen and free radicals. RR-zeaxanthin works synergistically with the other macular carotenoids to absorb a broader spectrum of high-energy blue light to protect against photo-induced oxidative damage.
