New study results shared by Omniactive Health Technologies (Morristown, NJ) suggests its Lutemax 2020 marigold extract, which contains the macular carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin, and mesozeaxanthin, may significantly increase macular pigment optical density (MPOD), photo stress recovery, and disability glare performance.  The results come from the second in the LAMA group of studies, LAMA II, which is short for “lutein, vision, and mental acuity.” The previous study in the series, LAMA I, suggested the ingredient may improve other parameters of visual performance, such as eliciting a rapid retinal response.
