Thread Contributor: ChangeZeaxanthin whitens the skin?
#1
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5063591/
12 weeks 10mg lutein + 2mg zeaxanthin:
"Overall skin tone was significantly improved in the L/Zi group compared to placebo (P<0.0237), and luminance (L*) values were significantly increased in the L/Zi group. Mean minimal erythemal dose was increased with L/Zi supplementation after 12 weeks of supplementation. L/Zi supplementation significantly increased the individual typological angle."


https://academic.oup.com/advances/articl...0A/4524025
"Lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation effectively whitens the skin and improves skin health attributes. There were no marked adverse effects."

"After 12 wk of lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation, overall skin tone improved over placebo (-78.20 compared with 7.17, P < 0.0237) and the luminance (L*) values were significantly increased from baseline (63.08, p < 0.0094) compared with placebo (62.59, p < .0.3216). Also b* values significantly decreased (-0.56 compared with -1.05) over baseline in lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation. Mean MED increased after 12 wk of lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation (3.25 compared with 6.42) over baseline. Lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation significantly increased Individual Typological Angle (ITA°) from baseline."

-> WTF, zeaxanthin whitens the skin? (This would be not good for my goals)
Or does it just give an SPF like a sunscreen (which would make it fine)
They say it makes the skin better, also, but you gotta read what the 'better' actually is, i didn't get that far

Ok, so this study actually did find something useful. It sure does have a shit abstract that implies it found nothing.

So "Mean MED" is "minimal erythemal dose" which is a tanning term that refers to how much sun exposure is required before a sunburn occurs.

So this study found that Luetin+Zeaxanthin basically function as an internal SPF 2, since it doubles time to sunburn from 3.25 to 6.42

Then they have self-assessment scores from 1-10 on how the subjects thought their own skin looked.
That produced:

So this is the cheapest trustworthy source of Zeaxanthin I can find
https://www.amazon.com/Swanson-Zeaxanthi...077HZ1T7T/

Anything better? I mostly see it mixed with 20+mg of Lutein, which I don't think is even especially useful.

You mean Swanson or Zeaxanthin? 

Swanson is a quality provider. They're in line with Now or Puritan's Pride. I've never had a problem from Swanson.

If you mean Zeaxanthin, much like Red Palm Oil, I actually suspect it's redundant if taking Astaxanthin and Beta Carotene. But I don't know that yet. I plan to try both. I have heard that Zeaxanthin has stacking eye benefits with other carotenes. I don't know about skin yet. There is some chance, so I'll try it.
