  • Anchovyxanthin
  • Xanthophyll 3
  • Zeaxanthol

Zeaxanthin is one of the two diet-obtained carotenoids present in the macula region of the eye. High dietary intake of zeaxanthin correlates with reduced risk of advanced neovascular age-related macular degeneration.1,2 In a rodent model, zeaxanthin directly inhibits oxidative damage and the production of VEGF and adhesion molecules induced by diabetes.3
