Zeaxanthin is in the same family as Lutein and is of great benefit for the eyes. Zeaxanthin is a great anti-oxidant and a bioflavonoid pigment found in lots of healthy foods and it’s also a good anti-inflammatory agent. Zeaxanthin helps with many conditions including diabetic retinopathy, cataracts, macular degeneration, or glaucoma, and it also protects the eye against ultraviolet damage. And Zeaxanthin is also good for prevention of cardiovascular diseases, lung cancer, and stroke. Zeaxanthin can be found in multiple vitamins… especially vitamin formulas for the eyes.
