Macular pigment response to a supplement containing meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin

Macular pigment response to a supplement containing meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin

By Richard Bone & John Landrum, 11-May-2007

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a disease with multiple risk factors, many of which appear to involve oxidative stress. Macular pigment, with its antioxidant and lightscreening properties, is thought to be protective against AMD. A result has been the appearance of dietary supplements containing the macular carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin. More recently, a supplement has been marketed containing, in addition, the third major carotenoid of the macular pigment, meso-zeaxanthin. The purpose of the study was to determine the effectiveness of such a supplement in raising macular pigment density in human subjects.
