All Zeaxanthin Is Not Created Equal
Dietary Zeaxanthin vs. Meso-zeaxanthin Unlike dietary Zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin is a synthetic ingredient not found in the U.S. daily diet, but instead created from a harsh chemical modification of a crude marigold extract. No meso-zeaxanthin publications exist that demonstrate it has been tested by itself without other carotenoids, so any beneficial effects are unknown. This is also true regarding whether Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD) can actually be increased by meso-zeaxanthin alone.
