Zeaxanthin – the Heart of ZeaVision
Studies show that Zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan-thin) increases low macular pigment levels – a leading risk factor for AMD. Our patented formulas contain the highest levels of dietary Zeaxanthin available featuring ZeaGold®*, a natural, highly bio-available Zeaxanthin derived from an exclusive whole food source – paprika. ZeaGold is a registered trademark of Kalsec. ZeaGold LG

Science-Based. Doctor Recommended. Since 2001. EyePromise supplements are recommended by thousands of leading EyeCare Professionals every day, and enjoyed by tens of thousands of patients. INTERESTING FACTS: • A healthy fovea contains a natural 2:1 ratio of Zeaxanthin to Lutein • Zeaxanthin protects eyes from harmful blue light induced photo-oxidative stress • Zeaxanthin is scarce in the average U.S. daily diet • EyePromise products are made from dietary Zeaxanthin – derived from natural paprika
ZX Lutein Scarcity Chart 091411 Zeaxanthin is particularly scarce in the average U.S. diet leaving a significant dietary gap for most people. Our patented formulas contain the highest levels of dietary Zeaxanthin available, helping bridge that dietary gap and supporting ocular health. The body does not product Zeaxathin or Lutein, so nutritional intake and supplementation are key in maintaining healthy Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD).

All Zeaxanthin Is Not Created Equal
Dietary Zeaxanthin vs. Meso-zeaxanthin Unlike dietary Zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin is a synthetic ingredient not found in the U.S. daily diet, but instead created from a harsh chemical modification of a crude marigold extract. No meso-zeaxanthin publications exist that demonstrate it has been tested by itself without other carotenoids, so any beneficial effects are unknown. This is also true regarding whether Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD) can actually be increased by meso-zeaxanthin alone.

Additional Information

  • 3-4 human meso-zeaxanthin supplementation reports concur that there is poor uptake of meso-zeaxanthin into the blood.
  • The AREDS 2 clinical trial used only dietary Zeaxanthin, not meso-zeaxanthin in its government sponsored trial.
  • Meso-zeaxanthin is currently imported from a group of suppliers in India, China, and Mexico – none of which have FDA oversight.
