Promising Results with Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Dietary intake of Lutein/Zeaxanthin is independently associated with decreased likelihood of neovascular AMD, geographic atrophy and large or extensive intermediate drusen in AREDS report No. 22.

If these cross-sectional results can be confirmed in prospective samples and experimental studies Lutein and Zeaxanthin may be considered an useful agent in food or supplement-based interventions designed to reduce the risk of AMD.
