Lutein, provided by Douglas Laboratories, is extracted from Marigold flower petals, a potent natural source. In addition, each softgel provides significant amounts of natural zeaxanthin which is a structurally and functionally similar carotenoid.
Carotenoids are the colorful plant pigments, some of which the body can turn into vitamin A, are powerful antioxidants, and act to enhance your immune response to infections. They are predecessors to vitamin A and very powerful antioxidants.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are two types of carotenoids, which are yellow to red pigments found widely in vegetables and other plants. Though lutein is considered a yellow pigment, in high concentrations it appears orange-red.
In addition to being found in many green leafy plants and colorful fruits and vegetables, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in the macula of the human eye, giving the macula its yellowish color. In fact, the macula also is called the "macula lutea" (from the Latin macula, meaning "spot," and lutea, meaning "yellow").
Lutein and zeaxanthin appear to have important antioxidant functions in the body. Along with other natural antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta carotene and vitamin E, these important pigments guard the body from damaging effects of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can destroy cells.
Scientific evidence clearly suggests that lutein's role in the retina is to protect the tissue from the damaging effects of high-energy blue spectrum light and oxygen to which the eyes are subjected more than any other tissue in the body. Both light and oxygen can create free radicals that can play havoc with the highlyunsaturated fatty acids present in the membranes of the visual cells. The uncontrolled generation of free radicals in the eyes is believed to ultimately lead to macular degeneration and cataract.
Douglas Laboratories' Lutein softgels provide significant amount of Lutein and Zeaxanthin carotenoids for maximum eye and antioxidant support.
Adults take 1 to 2 softgels daily, or as directed by your healthcare professional.
