  6. LUTEIN AND ZEAXANTHIN Lutein and Zeaxanthin, yellow coloured carotenoids, are found in high concentrations in the macula portion of the eye and make up the yellow pigmented macula.  These may help protect the eye and support eye function.  Lutein and Zeaxanthin specifically act as your eyes ‘natural sunglasses’ and filter damaging blue light.  They also have direct antioxidant effects, reducing blue light oxidative stress. VITAMIN C Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant, also found in high concentrations in the eye and recycles another antioxidant, vitamin E in your body. ZINC Zinc, an essential trace mineral, is used in zinc dependant enzyme reactions that occur in the eye, converting free radicals to hydrogen peroxide, making them less harmful.
