LUTEIN AND ZEAXANTHIN
Lutein and Zeaxanthin Intake Recommendations
Due to lack of scientific data, there are currently no dietary recommendations for lutein and zeaxanthin.
Results from epidemiologic studies indicate that an intake of 6 mg lutein per day is desirable for healthy individuals (20). More recent research suggests an optimal daily intake of 10 mg lutein and 2 mg zeaxanthin(21).
