Zeaxanthin belongs to subgroup xanthophylls of bioflavonoid called carotenoids and is abundant in dark, leafy green vegetables. The eye retina contains zeaxanthin, which is why its consumption is important. Zeaxanthin helps protect the eye from ultra-violet (UV) damage, and prevents free-radical damage to the retina and the lens of the eye that is associated with diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma.
