Description:

PURPOSE.Lutein (L) and zeaxanthin (Z) are two dietary carote-noids that accumulate at the macula, where they are collec-tively known as macular pigment (MP). There is a biologicallyplausible rationale, with some supporting evidence, that MPmay protect against age-related maculopathy (ARM). This studywas undertaken to investigate the relationship between dietaryintake of L and Z, serum concentrations of these carotenoids,and MP optical density in 828 healthy Irish subjects
