Meso-Zeaxanthin (MZ)

MZ is the central yellow pigment at the back of the eye. This yellow pigment also contains the dietary carotenoids lutein (L) and zeaxanthin (Z), and is uniquely placed to protect the eye from the ageing process.

The mission of this website is to provide up to date information on the role of these carotenoids for age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the developed world's leading cause of blindness.
