The concept of losing or even diminishing sight is one of the
most frightening things for most people. Sight impairment is often a consequence of aging, usually starting with the need to use those "cheaters" also known as reading glasses you can pick up at any drug or chain store.
Sound diet and lifestyle habits can help keep the eyes and vision healthy, but supplementation can help more. Two Marigold derivatives -- lutein and zeaxanthin -- are antioxidants specific to eye and vision support, with compelling science to support daily consumption. Plus, more recent research has revealed that each has cosmeceutical applications to preserve healthy skin, the largest organ in the body.
A large body of scientific evidence supporting lutein's eye health benefits is the primary growth driver of this market globally. Several studies have documented the beneficial effects of consuming lutein, such as reducing the risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract and even slowing the progression of the disease. This augurs well for the global lutein market, given that eye health ranks among the top five health concerns in the United States, as well as in various countries across the European Union (EU).
Lutein and Zeaxanthin may be used to support against development of age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) and to support overall healthy structure of the eye and function of vision. In addition, newer compelling research shows that lutein and zeaxanthin are effective in skin- health/anti-aging cosmeceuticals for photoprotective properties and hydration.

The two Marigold derivatives -- lutein and zeaxanthin are not stable in character, which fast degraded when meeting with light, the heat and oxygen. After degradation, they turn to other substance.
