ICaps® Eye Vitamin & Mineral Supplement Lutein & Zeaxanthin Formula is a specialized, comprehensive formula of carotenoids, antioxidants and minerals important to vision. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are natural carotenoids that have been shown through structural and clinical studies to be concentrated in the macular segment of the retina. These carotenoids are not produced by the human body, and their accumulation in the eye is dependent on dietary intake. Studies suggest a relationship between these two carotenoids and the maintenance of a normal healthy macula and clarity of the lens of the eye.(1) Zinc is an important mineral found in high concentrations in healthy eyes. Zinc acetate has been proven to be the form of zinc with greatest absorption by the body.(2)
