Lutein & trans-zeaxanthin
About Lutein & Zeaxanthin
Lutein and zeaxanthin are naturally occurring fat-soluble antioxidant carotenoids widely found in green leafy vegetables and various yellow to orange-colored fruits and flowers. Lutein is also found in significant quantities in the yolk of the egg, and in corn. One of the richest sources of lutein and zeaxanthin in nature is marigold flowers.
Lutein belongs to the xanthophylls family of carotenoids and is one of the two major components of the macular pigment in the retina. It is found either in the Free form (Trans-Lutein) or in the ester form.
Like Lutein, Zeaxanthin also belongs to the xanthophylls family of carotenoids is chemically very closely related to Lutein, both have the exact same chemical formulae, differing only in their physical structure.
In people, lutein and zeaxanthin make up most of the pigment in the center of the retina, the central part of the retina responsible for sharp and detailed vision. These two pigments absorb wavelengths in the high-energy spectrum; they may help protect retinal cells in the macula against "phototoxic" damage caused by short-wavelength high-energy light radiation. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids found in both the macula and lens of the human eye.
XanMax, the ONLY commercially available Lutein and natural Trans-Zeaxanthin product derived from Marigold, is a single product solution offering these ingredients at customized ratios. Our clinically-tested formula is more bioavailable than leading products on the market today.
