Research has shown that a good intake of antioxidants, most importantly carotenoids, (like such as zeaxanthin and lutein), may have positive benefits on our eyes.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are the predominant carotenoids in yellow corn but their levels are generally low in white corn.
Commonly known as macular pigments, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in the human retina, (the light-sensitive inner surface of the eye), where they protect against oxidative damage caused by blue light.
