Marigold extract introduction
Zeaxanthin extracted from marigold is a new type of oil-soluble natural pigment, widely present in green leafy vegetables, flowers, fruits, wolfberry and yellow corn. In nature, it often coexists with lutein, 尾-carotene, cryptoxanthin, etc. to form a carotenoid mixture.
In the food industry, zeaxanthin, as a natural food pigment, is gradually replacing synthetic pigments such as lemon yellow, sunset yellow, etc., and research and development of health products using zeaxanthin as the main functional ingredient will have broad market prospects

Flow chart
In the human body, zeaxanthin is a strong antioxidant. It can also protect the body's tissues and cells by quenching singlet oxygen, eliminating free radicals and other antioxidant behaviors, thereby protecting the biological system from some of the excessive oxidation reaction. Potentially harmful effects..
1.Anticancer effect

Zeaxanthin, like many carotenoids, can protect cells and organs from damage caused by free radicals in the body. Studies have shown that it is more effective than 尾-carotene in inhibiting the automatic oxidation of cellular lipids and preventing cell damage caused by oxidation, and the peroxidation of cellular lipids is related to tumor growth, which shows that it has The role of reducing the occurrence of cancer and enhancing immune function.

2.Prevent cardiovascular

Studies have reported that people who consume a lot of carotenoids daily have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease (Angiocardiopathy). The researchers found that it can inhibit low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation under in vitro conditions; it can significantly reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction and help slow the progress of arteriosclerosis.

3.Prevent cataract

It is one of the only two kinds of carotenes in the lens. It has 11 conjugated double bonds in its molecule and a hydroxyl group on the tail group. This structure gives it a strong antioxidant capacity. As a strong antioxidant, it can quench singlet oxygen and the triplet state of photosensitizer, remove harmful oxygen free radicals, prevent membrane lipid peroxidation, reduce the formation of lipofuscin, and then prevent the formation of cataracts. Studies have shown that people with a high intake of lutein and zeaxanthin can be 19% to 22% less likely to have cataracts than people with a low intake. Preventing age-related macular degeneration
1.Food preservative
Zeaxanthin has strong antioxidant properties. Compared with commonly used synthetic antioxidants (BHT) in antioxidant capacity, it has stronger antioxidant capacity than BHT in the first period of oxidation. It can prevent the oxidation of lipids and vitamins in food, keep the nutrients and flavor of food from being damaged by oxidation, and prolong the shelf life of food. Therefore, it is an ideal natural food preservative. it is commonly used in solid foods in production.
2. New drinks
It is widely present in fruits, vegetables, and flowers. As one of the main components of carotenoids, it has the effects of preventing AMD, cataracts, and cardiovascular diseases. Zeaxanthin, as a health food additive, has been approved by the FDA in the United States as a new nutritional additive for use in foods, and its dosage generally does not exceed 5%. Although the development of health products using zeaxanthin as the main functional ingredient is not mature enough, zeaxanthin is rich in natural sources, and it has broad prospects for the development and utilization
3.Feed additives

Compared with other carotenoids, zeaxanthin can be evenly deposited in poultry meat and egg yolk, so it can more enhance the pigmentation of poultry and fish. The high-dose lutein added in the feed makes the poultry meat and egg yolk have a yellow-green color, and corn rich in it as a feed can make the poultry meat yellow-red color and can be well deposited Color it in poultry meat.
It is used as a feed additive, which can effectively improve animal nutrition, egg yolk, poultry meat and skin color. In meat poultry, zeaxanthin deposits in claws, beaks and subcutaneous fat to color it and improve the quality of poultry carcasses. In the egg-producing poultry, zeaxanthin is deposited in the yolk to make it yellow, which improves the quality of the egg and increases its nutritional value.
In addition, due to the photoprotective ability of zeaxanthin, it can be used as a protective agent for photosensitive cells. It also has the effects of protecting the skin, delaying aging, and reducing the formation of lipofuscin, which makes it appear in the cosmetics field Emerging in the field of cosmeticsMarigold Extract Powder factory
