Dec 14, 2018

Zeaxanthin is a typical oil soluble chloroplast pigment.In nature, and it is widely found in green leafy vegetables, flowers, fruits, medlar and yellow corn. The main pigment of maize is zeaxanthin, which is about 0.1~9mg/kg in maize seeds. Green leafy vegetables are the main dietary sources of lutein, but zeaxanthin content is less.

From being woken up by the alarm clock of your mobile phone in the morning to saying "goodbye" to your circle of friends in the middle of the night, you are exposed to the blue light as much as you face your mobile phone and computer.In the past, we used to supplement lutein to protect against blue light, but now we have a new weapon -- zeaxanthin.


FloraGLO lutein, the lutein brand most frequently studied in the world, comes from ZeaONE of the same manufacturer Kemin (distributed by tiesman under OPTISHARPNatural), which is the natural free type of zeaxanthin from marigold. It is the same form of zeaxanthin from dietary sources, both of which are (3R, 3’r) zeaxanthin


Since zeaxanthin and lutein are the only carotenoids present at the base of the eye, they are specifically accumulated in the eye after being absorbed by the body, protecting the eye from oxidative stress and free radical damage, and filtering out harmful blue light. So the easiest way to protect your eyes is to make zeaxanthin and lutein part of your daily diet. Unfortunately, our bodies don't make lutein and zeaxanthin on their own, they need to be ingested from outside.Studies show that most people get only 1 to 2mg of these two nutrients a day from their diet.But our bodies need 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin every day. Therefore, supplementation is a good way to save our eyes.
