Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid, a pigmented nutrient that is responsible for the yellow colors of fruits and vegetables, and is present in the highest quantities in dark, leafy green vegetables. You're born with a certain amount of lutein in your eye, but your body doesn't reproduce it.
The macula is the region of the retina responsible for central vision. It's also the area that is most sensitive to blue light, the part of the visible light spectrum that, along with ultraviolet light, can damage your eyes. Lutein helps protect against this damage by filtering blue light before it can damage the macula.
Being one of the only two carotenoids that is stored in retina, lutein not only provides integrity and density of the macular pigment but also protects eye cells from harmful free radical damage through its potent antioxidant properties. Lutein may be more beneficial than vitamin E in supporting eye health in older people.
With such important functions to perform, lutein is a must have carotenoid for optimal ocular health. Getting enough lutein through dietary sources on everyday basis may be hard for you. Pure Encapsulations free-form Lutein is structurally similar to the lutein found naturally in spinach and other leafy greens, providing optimal support for macular health and antioxidant support for the retina. Pure Encapsulations Lutein 20 mg provides this must-have carotenoid in easy to take softgel caps.
