Of the 600 carotenoids found in nature, only lutein and zeaxanthin are deposited in high quantities in the retina (macula) of the eye. They filter harmful high-energy blue wavelengths of light and help protect and maintain healthy cells in the eyes. Getting daily amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin through your diet through green, leafy vegetables or nutritional supplements can help maintain good eye health.
Supports Prevention of Macular Degeneration: Lutein and Zeaxanthin help protect the eyes from potential damage and help prevent cataracts and age related macular degeneration.
Macular degeneration may result in blurry or no vision in the centre of the visual field, often making the person feel helpless. One study suggested that lutein and zeaxanthin are being considered as safer options instead of beta carotene, which was previously used for macular degeneration.
Optimal Vision Support:The various ingredients, especially Lutein and Zeaxanthin help fight damage caused by ageing to provide you optimal vision support.
How does Lutein and Zeaxanthin work?
In nature, especially in vegetables, lutein and zeaxanthin help absorb excess light energy in order to prevent damage to. High concentration of lutein and zeaxanthin is also found in the macula of the human eye. Lutein and Zeaxanthin have anti-oxidant properties that may naturally protect the eye from free radical damage. Lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin (the third carotenoid found in the macula) protect the underlying structures of the retina by the blocking blue light. They help reduce the risk of light –induced oxidative damage that could lead macular degeneration. A study published suggested that the mixture of these carotenoids is more effective than any one of the individual carotenoids.
