ZeaONE®/OPTISHARP™ Natural Zeaxanthin

Zeaxanthin, like lutein, is deposited in the eyes to form macular pigment, which keeps our eyes functioning their best. Zeaxanthin is found naturally in common vegetables like corn, squash and peppers. Unfortunately, most Americans only get 10% of the recommended amount from their diet.

ZeaONE®/OPTISHARP Natural Zeaxanthin is a supplement ingredient for eye health that is naturally-sourced from marigold flowers. Together, ZeaONE/OPTISHARP Natural Zeaxanthin and FloraGLO Lutein help absorb potentially damaging blue light and enhance the quality of vision. 1-4 When formulated into a supplement with FloraGLO Lutein, ZeaONE/OPTISHARP Natural Zeaxanthin:

How Much is Needed?

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 for vision, it's important to consume lutein and zeaxanthin from foods or dietary supplements. Most individuals aren't consuming enough fruits and vegetables that contain lutein and zeaxanthin. In fact, most people only get 1 to 2 mg each day, which is far below the amounts proven to be beneficial for eye health.9

ZeaONE/OPTISHARP Natural Zeaxanthin is zeaxanthin naturally sourced from marigold flowers and is a safe, trusted ingredient for eye health. While the highest concentration of this carotenoid is found in the eye, zeaxanthin is also found in the skin, brain and other tissues.
