Yellow corn is great source of lutein and zeaxanthin and ½ cup of cooked corn has 1.8 grams of beneficial pigments combined
per serving. These naturally occurring yellow pigments are lost during ARMD, but research shows that older adults who boost
their blood levels of lutein and zeaxanthin through eating foods like corn and other carotenoid-rich fruits and vegetables
significantly reduced their risk of losing these pigments. One study even found that women who ate the most fruits and vegetables,
including yellow corn, reduced their risk of developing cataracts. To boost the absorption of the eye-friendly pigments in
corn, be sure to enjoy corn as part of a meal that provides some dietary fat like olive oil, walnuts, or salmon.
