Zeaxanthin protects cells and organs from damage caused by free radicals in the body. Studies have shown that zeaxanthin is more effective than beta carotene in inhibiting the automatic oxidation of cellular lipids and preventing cellular damage caused by oxidation, and that peroxidation of cellular lipids is associated with tumor growth, indicating that zeaxanthin has the function of reducing cancer occurrence and enhancing immune function.
- Prevention of Cardiovascular Diseases
Studies have reported that people with a high daily intake of carotenoids have a lower risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
Zeaxanthin is one of the only two carotenoids in the lens. It has 11 conjugated double bonds in its molecules and hydroxyl groups at the end, which makes it have strong antioxidant capacity. As a strong antioxidant, it can quench the triple states of singlet oxygen and photosensitizer, remove damaging oxygen free radicals, prevent membrane lipid peroxidation, reduce the formation of lipofuscin, and thereby prevent the formation of cataracts. Studies have shown that people with high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin are 19 to 22 percent less likely to develop cataracts than people with low levels.
