Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Luetin and zeaxanthin are two carotenoids primarily found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach. Carotenoids are the yellow/orange pigments that give fruits and vegetables their natural color.

You may be surprized to learn that these two carotenoids are also found in the macula of the eyes. Lutein and zeaxanthin make up the bulk of the pigments in your macula and the only way your body gets them is through diet. In fact, the yellow appearance and the name "macula lutea", are due to the dense concentration of lutein.
