Lutein 20mg +Zeaxanthin - 300 capsules

What is Lutein and how does it work?


Lutein (pronounced LOO-teen) is a yellow-to-orange phytochemical (Chemicals naturally found in fruits, vegetables, nuts and legumes that may have a positive impact on your health). It is  a carotenoid, meaning a natural colorant or pigment, found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, plus various fruits and corn. Egg yolks are also sources of Lutein.

Lutein provides nutritional support to our eyes and skin ヨ the only organs of the body directly exposed to the outside environment.  Lutein has been linked to promoting healthy eyes through reducing the risk of macular degeneration.  Other studies suggest that a mixture of nutrients, including lutein, may provide supplemental antioxidant capacity to the skin, helping counteract free radical damage.

Why is lutein important in our diet?
  • Simply put, lutein is an antioxidant that appears to quench or reduce harmful free radicals in various parts of the body. Free radicals can play a role in a variety of chronic diseases.
  • Reducing the risk of developing eye cataracts, when high amounts of lutein are obtained from the diet. It is not known if lutein supplements offer the same benefit.
  • An eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa. Limited research suggests that lutein might be helpful in the treatment of retinitis pigmentosa.
  • Colon cancer. People who get a lot of lutein from their diet seem to have a lower risk of developing colon cancer. But itメs not known whether lutein supplements provide the same benefit.
  • Breast cancer. Higher levels of lutein in the blood seem to be linked with a reduced risk of developing breast cancer.
