LUTEIN EYE BENEFITS
Lutein is a carotenoid vitamin known for its beneficial effects for the eye. Lutein is a fat-soluble pigment that gives color to many vegetables including kale, spinach, broccoli, and carrots. Lutein is also present in high concentrations in the retina, especially in the macula. Lutein is thought to function as a filter for sunlight and other sources of blue light as well as an antioxidant that fights oxidative stress and the damage it the stress can cause to the eye. Research indicates that lutein benefits those suffering from age-related macular degeneration (AMD) as well as prevent development of AMD. Lutein eye benefits include cataract care as well. Lutein is used to prevent cataracts and can, over time, improve vision for people with cataracts. Other studies indicate lutein may be beneficial for people suffering from heart disease, breast cancer, colon cancer, and type 2 diabetes.
