Lutein is the active carotenoid in this potent, natural source antioxidant. It is naturally derived from marigold flowers and contains a normal blend of carotenoids including: Zeaxanthin and Cryptoxanthin.
• Lutein is not made in the body.
• Lutein must be obtained from food or vitamin supplements.
• Lutein is found in large amounts in green, leafy vegetables such as spinach. Lutein in the diet can play a role in maintaining healthy eyes.
• Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of irreversible blindness among Americans age 65 and older.
• More than half of all Americans experience cataracts, a clouding of the eye's lens.
Preventative measures are important because eye diseases develop over a long period of time. By the time patients are diagnosed with AMD in their 60's or 70's, the disease may have been developing for 20 years or more.
• Lutein and zeaxanthin help build macular pigment density, a critical factor in the health of the macula and the retina.
• Research suggests that persons who eat high amounts of fruits and vegetables experience the lowest incidence of cataracts.
• Macular pigment density is related to clarity of the lens of the eye.
