Zeaxanthin bulk powder is a food-derived pigment with important biological functions in the body. Zeaxanthin is the main pigment of yellow corn. Its molecular formula is C40H56O2, its molecular weight is 568.88 Daltons, and its CAS registration number is 144-68-3. Zeaxanthin is widely used in food additives and is commonly used in the food industry to color meat products.
Application of Zeaxanthin
1. Prevention of age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
AMD is a monograph that causes irreversible blindness in adult eyesight. Chen Wei, et al .: The biological function of zeaxanthin and its main application are mainly caused by the macular degeneration in the central position of the retina. Zeaxanthin plays an important role in the prevention of AMD. It does not function through the production of vitamin A through metabolic processes, but absorbs high-energy blue light energy through its antioxidant activity, thereby preventing damage from occurring.
2. Prevention of cataract
Cataract is the main reason for the decline of vision in the elderly. It causes the lens in the eye to constantly become cloudy, which gradually makes people lose their vision in the process of painlessness, and even blindness. Zeaxanthin can prevent cataracts by inhibiting oxidative damage.
Studies have shown that zeaxanthin has an anti-cancer function. In spontaneous liver cancer in C3H / He male mice, if 0.005% of zeaxanthin is added to the water that the mice drink, it is found that liver cancer is suppressed.
4. Inhibition of low density lipoprotein oxidation
In macrophage-mediated low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation, carotenoids can play an important role in inhibiting oxidation. Zeaxanthin may slow the process of atherosclerosis.
