ZeaONE® Zeaxanthin - A Natural Ingredient for Eye Health

Zeaxanthin is an important carotenoid found primarily in vegetables such as corn, squash and yellow and orange peppers.1 Both lutein and zeaxanthin are naturally deposited in the eyes to form macular pigment, which benefits long-term eye health.2-4 Studies have shown that high levels of macular pigment may keep eyes functioning at their best. Zeaxanthin is similar to lutein, and often used in conjunction to produce the best vision benefits. Zeaxanthin acts as a powerful antioxidant by neutralizing the light-induced free radicals that destroy the eye's sensitive cells.5

ZeaONE Zeaxanthin is a supplement ingredient for eye health that's naturally-sourced from marigold flowers. Together, zeaxanthin and lutein help filter damaging blue light and enhance quality of vision. When formulated into a supplement with FloraGLO Lutein, ZeaONE Zeaxanthin:6-10

  • Helps eyes recover more quickly from intense light
  • Enhances quality of vision, even in people with 20/20 vision
  • Filters excess blue light
  • Helps reduce the progression of advanced macular degeneration (AMD)

The importance of zeaxanthin supplementation

Current research recommends at least 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin daily to keep eyes healthy and performing their best.  Since the human body doesn't produce these carotenoids, it's important to consume these nutrients from foods or dietary supplements. Most people aren't consuming enough fruits and vegetables that contain lutein and zeaxanthin. In fact, most people only get 0.5-4.0 mg each day - far below the amounts proven to be beneficial for eye health.11

Formulating with ZeaONE® Zeaxanthin and FloraGLO Lutein is the best way to protect your customers' eyes.
