Foods rich in lutein include egg yolks, broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash.

The researchers found that supplementation of 10 mg of lutein daily for 12 months had resulted in significant improvement in visual episodic memory, verbal episodic memory, inhibition, and attention. No Improvement was seen in verbal episodic memory, working memory, reasoning, shifting, or processing speed.
