Lutein and Zeaxanthin May Reduce Risk of Cataract
May 17, 2012
According to research just published in Molecular Vision, lutein and zeaxanthin may reduce the risk of cataract by protecting the eye from oxidative stress; the protective effect was similar to that reported for vitamin E.
The study corroborates findings from research published earlier this year showing that high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin were each associated with an approximately 40% reduction in the risk of cataract.
This research further highlights the critical role played by lutein and zeaxanthin in promoting eye health.
