In the human body lutein is specifically deposited in the macula portion of the eye. Dietary intake of lutein dramatically impacts the concentration found in the macula. Small amounts of zeaxanthin are also found in the macula. Lutein is an antioxidant in the carotenoid family (a group of naturally occurring fat-soluble pigments found in plants). Lutein is the primary carotenoid present in the central area of the retina called the macula.
