The carotenoid lutein contains powerful antioxidants and is beneficial to the eyes and skin. It helps protect against UV damage, thereby supporting vision.

Lutein for Eye Health


--

Benefits:

  • Supports macular function and eye health.
  • Helps protect against UV damage to the eyes.
  • Provides powerful antioxidant properties
  • Provides 10 mg lutein per capsule.

How It Works:

Lutein and zeaxanthin are found naturally in marigold petals. These macular pigments support eye health by absorbing blue light and preventing oxidative stress. These nutrients are highly concentrated in the macula of the eye. This area is responsible for focus and color differentiation. Research shows that higher plasma levels of lutein and zeaxanthin may be associated with macular health. As an antioxidant, lutein can protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals and can filter out damaging light, protecting eye tissues.

Ingredients:

Lutein, zeaxanthin and hibiscus flowers.

Recommended Use:

Take 1 capsule once or twice daily with a meal.

LUTEIN

Lutein for Eye Health

Good Morning America reported that a study

conducted at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary found

that overindulging in highly processed junk foods may increase

the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration

(AMD) by more than two-fold.

AMD is the leading cause of blindness and vision impairment

in the United States for people over 55.

This study revealed for the first time a link between diet

and AMD.

Earlier studies showed a link between a diet rich in dark,

leafy green vegetables and overall macular health. And researchers

have found that adding vegetables like spinach and kale

(high in the phytonutrient lutein) to your diet helps support

macular health.

The macula lutea is a yellow spot at the center of

the retina (the back of the eye).

When you look at an object, its image is formed on the retina.

The concentration of the pigment in the macula decreases

with age. Lutein (a carotenoid) helps protect the macula

lutea because of its capacity to filter short-wave visible

light. It intensifies the yellow color of the macula and

promotes lasting eye health.

Due to their antioxidant properties, lutein and zeaxanthin

(another carotenoid) have also been shown to help protect

the lipid membranes of the macula lutea against oxidation.

Two recent studies show that people with AMD have reported

improved vision after supplementing with lutein.

Lutein has also been shown to support breast health and

may be of particular importance to women, as women have

been shown to store less lutein than men.

Getting more lutein in the diet or through supplementation

is especially important for women.

You can bet that Americans will be slow to give up their

junk food-even at the price of their vision.

Perhaps we can help fight back with lutein supplementation.

NSP Lutein gives you 10 mg. lutein per capsule.
