Lutein and Zeaxanthin Intake Early studies revealed that increasing the dietary intake of lutein and zeaxanthin augmented the macular pigment optical density (MPOD) in study participants [91]. Furthermore, lutein supplementation of only 10 mg a day was shown to increase MPOD in individuals by 4–5% during a four-week study published in 2000 [92]. Since these studies were published, the interest in the effect of lutein and zeaxanthin on AMD has generated a large amount of exciting research. The possibility for AMD vision improvement by macular pigment enhancement with carotenoids or nutritional cofactors has been confirmed in the Phototrop study [93]; the Lutein Xanthophyll Eye Accumulation (LUXEA) study [94]; the Lutein Nutrition effects measured by Autofluorescence study (LUNA) [95]; the Taurine, Omega-3 Fatty Acids, Zinc, Antioxidant, Lutein study [96]; the Carotenoids and Antioxidants in Age-Related Maculopathy Italian Study [97]; the Carotenoids in Age-Related Maculopathy Study [98]; and a recent macular pigment consensus paper [49].

In 2007, the LAST II trial showed that individuals with the lowest MPOD were the most likely to benefit from supplementation with lutein alone or lutein plus antioxidants [100]. The LAST II study results suggest that individuals with low MPOD can benefit from supplementation and actually improve their MPOD. Furthermore, the LUXEA (Lutein Xanthophyll Eye Accumulation) study published in Age-Related Macular Degeneration 17 2007 found that supplementation with lutein (10 mg) causes pigment accumulation in the fovea, and zeaxanthin supplementation (10 mg) causes pigment accumulation over a wider area of the retina.

Oxidation in the retinal tissues is a process that requires diverse antioxidants to protect sensitive tissues like the retina. Separating fats from their antioxidant companions impairs the body’s ability to safely achieve optimal protection for retinal health. How fats are processed can explain why a diet high in fat increases AMD. Consuming nuts, an unprocessed high fat food lowers risk for developing AMD [56]. The combination of high omega-6 content in the Western diet, introduction of trans fats, and processing fats to remove the natural antioxidants appears to have created a shortage of DHA usable for the retina, which can be mitigated with supplemental DHA.
