Expert Eyecare: Focused On Eye Health:
What are Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-zeaxanthin?
Carotenoids may sound like aliens from outer space, but they’re actually essential nutrients for your eye health. Two very important carotenoids are lutein and zeaxanthin—yellow pigments that occur naturally in many plants and vegetables. Recent scientific research has discovered a third carotenoid in the eye, meso-zeaxanthin. It is not found in food sources. Instead, it appears to be created in the retina from lutein.
The best natural food sources of lutein and zeaxanthin are green leafy vegetables and other green or yellow vegetables. Among these, cooked kale and cooked spinach top the list, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Other sources are cooked collards, cooked turnip greens, green peas, cooked broccoli, raw romaine lettuce, cooked green beans and carrots. A non-vegetarian source of lutein and zeaxanthin are egg yolks. If you can’t get carotenoids into your diet, lutein/zeaxanthin/meso-zeaxanthin supplements are available. Be sure to ask your optometrist.
