Lutein

Lutein Information

Lutein is a naturally occurring pigment found in plants. When ingested by humans, it concentrates in a section of the eye called the macula, which is a small area in the center of the retina. Lutein acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. Lutein is not made in the body and must be obtained from food or vitamin supplements. Lutein is found in large amounts in green, leafy vegetables such as spinach.

Lutein Benefits

  • Most beneficial in the prevention of various conditions affecting vision and the eyes
  • Protect the eyes against radiation damage by acting as an optic filter and an antioxidant
  • Substantial protection against the type of damage that leads to macular degeneration
  • Possible benefit to patients diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa

Lutein Notes

Dietary Supplement Information Bureau recommends approximately 6 milligrams (in a softgel form) a day as a reliable guideline for the amount of Lutein intake per day for optimal health. This dietary supplement is considered safe when used in accordance with proper dosing guidelines
