About this PDF
Phytonutrients like carotenoids, hesperidin, lutein, and zeaxanthin are found in foods like carrots, winter squash, yellow squash, lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits. Carotenoids are vitamin A precursors associated with reduced risks for cardiovascular disease and certain cancers.
Hesperidin is a flavonoid antioxidant that may support endothelial function and vascular health. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids known to protect against age-related macular degeneration and are selectively taken up by the eye’s macula.
