Carotenoids to fight against eye diseases

The results of the epidemiological survey POLA (Pathologies Oculaires Liées à l’Age) conducted by the Inserm unit 593 “Epidemiology, public health and development” (Bordeaux) and the Inserm team 361 “Pathologies of the nervous system: Epidemiological and clinical research” (Montpellier) highlight the protective effect of two carotenoids (zeaxanthin and lutein) contained in green vegetables (kale, spinach, broccoli) on the risk of age-related pathologies, particularly AMD (age-related macular degeneration). Details of these results are published in the journal Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science.
