Details

Life Extension Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin Plus Astaxanthin and C3G - 60 softgels provides three carotenoids that promote eye health, along with a special carotenoid that fights eye fatigue. The ingredients in this unique formula work synergistically to support good eyesight and ocular health.

The eye is a very complex organ. It converts light into electrochemical impulses in neurons, which is what allows us to see. Light enters the front of the eye through the cornea and is then focused by the lens. The light then passes through a nerve layer of ganglions that are connected to photoreceptors that convert light into electrical signals, which are sent to the brain. The photoreceptors have a retinal pigmented epithelium behind them, which nourishes retinal cells and removes waste from photoreceptor cells. This epithelium rests on a thin support structure that creates a blood-brain barrier that nutrients, oxygen, and waste pass through. The retina’s macular region contains a pigment composed of the xanthophylls (carotenoids) lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin.

Carotenoids absorb blue light, protect photoreceptor cells from light damage, and prevent oxidative stress. The macular pigment density is essential for proper vision. Unfortunately, macular pigment density declines with age. Some people’s eyes even lose the ability to convert lutein into meso-zeaxanthin inside the macula.

Life Extension Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin Plus Astaxanthin and C3G - 60 softgels contains healthy dosages of all three key carotenoids that protect eye health, plus astaxanthin, a special carotenoid that prevents eye fatigue.

Astaxanthin comes from a type of red algae known as Haematococcus pluvialis. When taken with other carotenoids, astaxanthin can protect DNA from free radical damage, repair UVA-irradiated cells, and prevent inflammatory cell infiltration. This carotenoid also promotes eye muscle health and sharpens visual acuity. In this way, it can preventatively fight eye fatigue. Clinical studies have shown that astaxanthin can reduce “bleary-eye” feeling and eye irritation, and can prevent eyestrain caused by accommodative dysfunction.

Life Extension Super Zeaxanthin with Lutein, Meso-Zeaxanthin Plus Astaxanthin and C3G - 60 softgels provides all of the abovementioned carotenoids, and now includes C3G, too. This is a flavonoid compound that stimulates the regeneration of rhodopsin, which absorbs light in the retina. Rhodopsin levels decline with age, which leads to a progressive loss of night vision. Thus, C3G supports night vision by helping maintain healthy levels of rhodopsin.

  • From Diane M. at 7/10/12 2:43 PM
    • I have been taking Super Zeaxanthin as a precaution for well over a year now, as both my parents had macular degeneration. I have just been diagnosed with macular degeneration myself.

      My doctor suggested that I continue to take take the Super Zeaxanthin but also suggested that I confirm there is no vitamin A -beta carotene in the formula. Studies show that smokers and former smokers (I quit smoking 6 years ago) are at a greater risk of lung cancer with Zeaxanthin that includes vitamin A.

      I studied the bottle and can find no indication of vitamin A or beta cartene. Can you confirm?

      Kind regards,
      Diane
