zeaxanthin

This is a natural pigment produced by plants and absorbed by animals. This pigment is what gives corn its yellow color. This pigment, along with lutein, has been studied as part of the AREDS 2 Study and found to help slow down the progression of macular degeneration. Both these pigments are found in high concentrations inside the retina.
