Vitamin E may help maintain levels of DHA in the brain, says a new study with zebrafish funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Scientists from Oregon State University in Corvallis report that zebrafish fed a diet without vitamin E for nine months had about 30% less of a forma of DHA known as DHA-PC, a component of the brain cell membrane.


Two years of supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin may boost macular pigment optical density (MPOD) and retinal sensitivity in people with early age-related macular degeneration (AMD), says a new study.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids capable of filtering the harmful blue light than can damage cells in the eye, the rods and the cones.


Increased intakes of lutein may not only have a direct beneficial role in the macula of the eye, but may also affect inflammation, says a new study.

Results from a one year study indicated that 10 mg per day of lutein indicated that supplementation with the carotenoid significantly reduced levels of sC5b-9, a marker of systemic inflammation, compared to placebo.
