What is Zeaxanthin？
Zeaxanthin is a common carotenoid, a pigment found in high levels in dark green vegetables, orange and yellow fruits, and egg yolks. It is also one of only two carotenoids found in the human eye, where it helps protect the eyes from the harmful effects of oxidation and light.
Carotenoids are fat-soluble, antioxidant molecules that are bright red, yellow, or orange. They’re found in some algae, bacteria, fungi, plants, fruits, and vegetables.They’re essential nutrients that you have to get from your diet .
Of the 700 carotenoids identified in nature, only about 20 have been consistently found in the human body. Of these, zeaxanthin and lutein are primarily found in the human eye.You can find zeaxanthin and lutein in a variety of fruits, vegetables, and animal products, such as egg yolks.They belong to the carotenoid class of pigments called xanthophylls, and they’re found in high concentrations in light-exposed structures in both plants and the human eye.
In scientific studies, zeaxanthin and lutein are often described together due to their overlapping functions in the eye, but also because the human body can convert lutein into zeaxanthin .
Zeaxanthin is concentrated in the center of the retina, while lutein is found in the peripheral regions of the retina. Together, they form the macular pigment of the eye .Both offer antioxidant benefits, although zeaxanthin is the more effective antioxidant.
Carotenoids act as antioxidants, substances that protect the body’s cells from damage. They are also thought to have cancer-fighting properties.

Benefits of Zeaxanthin
Zeaxanthin plays two important roles:
It builds a yellow-colored pigment shield to protect eye cells from the harmful effects of certain light sources, such as the sun.
It protects the eyes from dangerous free radicals, unstable molecules that steal electrons from healthy cells, causing damage (what’s known as oxidation).
Once inside the body, zeaxanthin is drawn to the eyes. It makes its way into the lens (the clear, curved structure toward the front of the eye), as well as the macula and fovea—both parts of the retina, or tissue that lines the back of the eyeball.
The macula is the most sensitive part of the retina and the one with the most photoreceptors. These are special cells that convert light into signals that can be interpreted by your brain. As such, the macula is the place where your sharpest vision is produced. It is also responsible for your ability to perceive colors.
Zeaxanthin and another carotenoid called lutein are the only dietary carotenoids that accumulate in the retina. Because both zeaxanthin and lutein are found in large amounts in the macula, they’re known as macular pigments.
Macular Pigment and Blue Light
Macular pigment works to filter blue light, the visible light at the end of the color spectrum that researchers believe can cause macular degeneration. Further research is needed to prove the harmful effects of blue light. However, studies have shown that by filtering blue light, macular pigment helps improve several areas of vision including:
- Visual acuity
- Ability to see subtle differences in shading
- Discomfort from intense light
- Photostress recovery time (when vision returns to normal after exposure to bright lights)
- Macular function
Why Are Lutein and Zeaxanthin Good for Your Eyes?
Not only can you find these potent antioxidants in many vegetables, but they are also in your eyes, especially the lens, retina, and macula. That’s why doctors believe they play a key role in healthy vision.
How Do Lutein and Zeaxanthin Help?
Lutein and zeaxanthin can help protect your eyes from harmful high-energy light waves like ultraviolet rays in sunlight. Studies suggest that a high level of both in eye tissue is linked with better vision, especially in dim light or where glare is a problem.
Diets rich in these two nutrients may help hold off age-related eye diseases. For example, one study found that people who ate foods rich in zeaxanthin — think “green veggies” like spinach, kale, and broccoli — may be half as likely to get cataracts. Another showed that if you have macular degeneration, which causes damage to the middle of your retina and can take away your central vision, supplements with lutein and zeaxanthin can slow its progress.
