Zeaxanthin has undergone extensive testing on animals and humans at about 10 mg per dosage, doses way beyond what we offer. It is currently recognized by the US Food and Drug Administration as "GRAF", or Generally Recognized As Safe. Fair-skinned people exceeding the maximum recommended dosage of 10 mg per day may experience a yellow-golden skin coloration.
Zeaxanthin works to keep the blood vessels in the eye continuously supplied with essential nutrients. It stores itself in the lens of your eye and in the macula. The macula, located in the center of the retina, absorbs Zeaxanthin and blocks out harmful UV light. Since the effects of age related vision loss only increase as you get older, you should include Zeaxanthin in your daily health regimen now. Start building up your eye's store of Zeaxanthin today.
