What is Zeaxanthin and How is it Pronounced?
Zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan-thin) is a protective pigment in the Fovea and along with Lutein largely makes-up the Macular Pigment, which functions like internal sunglasses. It protects the eyes from harmful blue light-induced oxidative stress and improves vision performance.
Why is Zeaxanthin and Lutein important?
Many studies have suggested that higher levels of macular pigment is associated with improved vision performance and that it can be modified via supplementation. The macula contains both lutein and Zeaxanthin and the eye preferentially accumulates Zeaxanthin in the center of the macula where the highest density of visual cells reside. Supplementing with lutein will increase macular pigment; however, the most crucial area of the macula may have deficient protection without Zeaxanthin and recent science demonstrates unique differences between the two carotenoids. Most recently, carotenoids have also been found in the lens, skin, lungs, and brain.
How do Zeaxanthin and Lutein differ? Are there benefits to taking both?
Zeaxanthin and lutein are molecularly similar however they each orient themselves differently in the cell with Zeaxanthin having two ends reactive for antioxidant activity, and lutein only one. The deposition of these antioxidants in the eye varies as Zeaxanthin is in higher concentration in the cone rich center of the macula and lutein is in higher concentration in the peripheral area of the macula. The eye preferentially deposits Zeaxanthin in the fovea, suggesting a distinct and different role for each.
What other benefits are associated with lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation?
The benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin do not just apply to those concerned with age-related eye health issues. Healthy eyes and enhanced visual performance are things we can all benefit from. Over 60 trials published in peer-reviewed journals have been completed in humans using FloraGLO Lutein. Published human clinical trials have shown that supplementation with FloraGLO:
-Improves visual performance
-Increases levels of serum lutein
-Increases macular pigment optical density (MPOD)
Glare Recovery. Glare from intense light is an issue that affects all of us in a variety of everyday circumstances. Research shows that daily supplementation with 10 mg lutein and 2 mg zeaxanthin and the resulting higher MPOD levels can help increase tolerance to the intensity of glaring light as well as significantly improve photostress recovery time, effectively giving drivers more driving room to stop.
Contrast Sensitivity. The ability to clearly distinguish an object from other objects and its background is known as contrast sensitivity. Dense macular pigment helps to define shapes that aren’t clearly outlined, such as objects in shadows, light colored objects against a bright sky and cars or pedestrians at night. Enhanced contrast sensitivity also improves visual acuity in low-light conditions, allowing us to see finer and sharper details in dim light. Increased MPOD has demonstrated improvement in contrast sensitivity.
Filtering Damaging Blue Light. Lutein and zeaxanthin act like internal sunglasses to filter out blue light, the most damaging spectrum of visible light. The denser these nutrients make the macular pigment, the better it can function to protect the eye from blue light damage.
Visual Processing Speed. The retina is an extension of our brain formed during prenatal development and is connected to the brain by the optic nerve. Research supports that denser macular pigment in the back of the eye allows the neural signals from the retina to the brain to happen more quickly, resulting in faster reaction times. Consumption of the recommended daily amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin increases MPOD, which in turn is associated with faster visual processing speed.
What is the maximum dose of Zeaxanthin an adult can safely consume per day?
Although the safety of much higher daily doses has been documented, ZeaVision only recommends the dosage listed on the supplement fact panel. The Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), the scientific advisory body to the Codex Alimentarius Commission, has set the acceptable daily intake for the antioxidant ingredients, alone or in combination, at up to 2mg per kilogram of body weight. This means for a 160lb./72.6 kg person, approximately 145mg of lutein/Zeaxanthin would be considered safe.
Can we get Zeaxanthin and Lutein from our diet?
Yes. Lutein is found in mostly green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach, collard greens, etc. Zeaxanthin is available from a few dietary sources (orange paprika peppers, goji berries, but it is much more difficult to find high sources in our diet. That is why supplementation is so often necessary.
Can a daily multivitamin or diet alone provide the same level of nutrients as EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable?
No, two of EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable’s most critical ingredients, Zeaxanthin and Lutein, are not found in most multi-vitamins and scarce in the average American diet. To put this into perspective, you would need to eat over 40 ears of corn per day to get the same level of zeaxanthin found in 1 serving of EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable.
Is EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable Lactose-free?
Is EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable gluten-free?
Is EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable yeast-free?
Do EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable contain any genetically modified nutrients (GMO’s)?
Can I take EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable if I’m on a blood thinner, such as Plavix or Coumadin?
Yes. Though it is always recommended that patients talk to their primary care physician before beginning any supplement regimen.
Why does EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable not contain meso-zeaxanthin?
Meso-zeaxanthin is not in the food supply, nor is it found in human blood or organs. All marketed supplements containing meso-zeaxanthin contain synthetic meso-zeaxanthin, created by a harsh chemical treatment of lutein. The long-term effect of ingesting meso-zeaxanthin is not known. Meso-zeaxanthin is only found in the macula of the eye and it is theorized that meso zeaxanthin it is created by lutein conversion into this intermediate molecule. It is hypothesized that meso-zeaxanthin is created when the eye doesn’t obtain adequate dietary zeaxanthin. No meso-zeaxanthin human safety studies have been filed with the FDA.
What are mixed tocopherols?
Mixed tocopherols are a form of Vitamin E that helps protect fish oil from oxidizing and serves other functions in the body. ZeaVision utilizes natural forms of vitamin E in EyePromise Vizual Edge Chewable.
