Lutien — is a naturally occurring plant pigment that helps support the density of photosensitive pigments in the macula of the retina.

 

Zeaxanthin — is one of the most common carotenoids found in nature, known to fight the harmful effects of free radicals and UV light radiation. It is the pigment that gives paprika, corn, saffron, and many other plants their characteristic color.
