Description:

Background:The macula (central retina) contains a yellow pigment, comprising the dietary carotenoids lutein (L), zeaxanthin(Z), andmeso-zeaxanthin, known as macular pigment (MP). The concentrations of MP’s constituent carotenoids in retina andbrain tissue correlate, and there is a biologically-plausible rationale, supported by emerging evidence, that MP’s constituentcarotenoids are also important for cognitive function
