WALLED LAKE, MI - May 14, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Quantum Nutritionals (, a Michigan based LLC, announces a new supplement containing Meso-Zeaxanthin (MZ) for eye health. MZ is a patented supplement (US patent nos. 6'329,432, 6'218,436) researched and discovered by Drs. Richard Bone and John Landrum of Florida International University.

The discovery of MZ in the eye by Bone and Landrum is an extension of their well-known research on carotenoids; they are pioneer researchers in the field of macular pigment and confirmed the identity of Lutein (L) as a component in the retina. Together they discovered that the carotenoid Zeaxanthin (Z) is also a major component of the macular pigment. Bone and Landrum have been investigating the macular pigment and its involvement with the disease Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) for over two decades.

AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in the United States and the leading cause of blindness in those aged 50+. Approximately 20 to 35 million people are affected by some form of macular degeneration and this number is expected to triple by 2025! At the recent ARVO meeting (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology), Bone and Landrum presented new data concerning the discovery of MZ, its usefulness as a supplement, and its potential protective and preventative relationship to the macula and AMD.

The central part of the retina is distinguished by its yellow coloration, which is the macular pigment. Bone and Landrum have demonstrated that the macular pigment is composed of the three carotenoids; L, Z and MZ. These carotenoids protect the macula because of their antioxidant and light filtering properties. Protection is imperative because the macula is responsible for the highest degree of visual activity. Proper function of the macula is essential for you to be able to see details such as printed words or patterns. Loss of central vision due to AMD makes it impossible for you to drive, read or even recognize a loved ones face.

Unlike Lutein which is in spinach and other green vegetables, and Zeaxanthin which is the yellow pigment found in corn, Meso-Zeaxanthin is not found in common food sources and could not be supplemented until now. Bone and Landrum conducted autopsy research on donor eyes with AMD and found MZ to be the most depleted of the 3 macular carotenoids in patients with AMD. In order to maintain the natural balance found in healthy eyes, the need for MZ supplementation is greater for those over the age of 50, than L & Z alone.

Announcing LUTEINPLUS with MZ(TM), a patented blend of carotenoids (L/MZ/Z), that emulates the natural balance found in the macula. It is the ultimate supplement for eye care and protection against the leading cause of vision loss. Quantum Nutritionals is offering this supplement as the "NEW" armor in the fight against AMD.
