1. A composition, comprising:

  • a solubilizate form of a xanthophyll which does not contain any crystal forms of carotenoids, the xanthophyll solubilizate being in the form of micro-micelles obtained by melting a xanthophyll diacetate or a xanthophyll dipropionate in their natural original lipid vegetable matrix in the presence of lipids, phospholipids, fatty acids, emulsifiers and moisture, in a dosage between 2 to 50 mg, wherein the xanthophyll solubilizateprovides an absorption that is at least 20% greater than that of crystalline carotenoids, andprovides an improved bioavailability in the macular pigment deposit that exceeds by at least 10% of the Macular Pigment Optical Density the bioavailability obtained by ingesting crystalline xanthophylls; and

    at least one of zinc, copper, selenium, manganese, vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
