Eye Health, Mucous Membranes, Vision Support,
(Formerly Beta Carotene) Our LUTEIN ANTIOXIDANTS is a synergistic blend of lutein, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, riboflavin, zinc, selenium, bilberry extract, green tea extract, n-acetyl cysteine (NAC), rutin powder, zeaxanthin to support healthy eye function and vision.
How It Works
Lutein is one of the carotenoids, yellow and orange pigments found in many fruits and vegetables including mangoes, corn, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, tomatoes and dark, leafy greens such as kale, collards and bok choy. It is the major carotenoid in the fruit and vegetable rich Asian diet, and a minor one in the typical American diet which doesn’t contain enough fruits and vegetables.
There is very good evidence that the lutein in food helps protect against cataracts and macular degeneration, two common, age-related eye disorders.
Lutein and another carotenoid, zeaxanthin, form the yellow pigment of the retina and absorb blue light, a harmful component of sunlight. In addition, new evidence from a study completed last year showed that lutein may help protect against clogging of the carotid arteries in the neck, an indication of atherosclerosis, the disease that leads to most heart attacks.
