Vitacost Lutein 10 mg with Zeaxanthin Featuring FloraGlo® Lutein Description
Important antioxidant to help maintain healthy vision.*
What is Vitacost Lutein?
Vitacost Lutein is a dietary supplement providing 10 mg of a high-quality form of lutein, plus 500 mcg of zeaxanthin per serving. Lutein and zeaxanthin are members of the carotenoid family, nutrients found naturally in the macula of the human retina. The macula, located in the center of the retina, is responsible for producing the sharp, central vision needed to see fine detail (for reading, sewing, etc.). Research shows that higher plasma levels of lutein and zeaxanthin may be associated with macular health.*
Lutein and zeaxanthin are natural, fat-soluble yellowish pigments also found in plants and algae that protect against the toxic effects of ultraviolet radiation and oxidation.
How does Vitacost Lutein support health?
FloraGLO’s antioxidants can protect healthy cells from damage caused by free radicals, while also filtering out potentially dangerous, high-energy blue light and ultraviolet radiation from the macula.*
Studies recommend taking 6 mg to 20 mg of lutein daily for eye health and antioxidant protection.
