What are lutein and zeaxanthin?
Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids, nutrients found naturally in plant foods and in the macula of the human retina. The macula, located in the very 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.*
How do lutein and zeaxanthin support health?
As antioxidants, lutein and zeaxanthin help 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 antioxidant protection and eye health.*
