A carotenoid found in vegetables and fruits, lutein protects cells against free radicals. It has shown encouraging results in preventing macular degeneration. Perfect for people who spend time in front of a monitor or have a family history of eye disease. Here it is formulated with bilberry and antioxidant anthocyanidins.
- Lutein is a carotenoid that is typically found in combination with its stereoisomer, zeaxanthin
- Two major carotenoid pigments in the human macula and retina
- Absorbs harmful blue light, modulating the exposure to solar damage
- Bilberry and anthocyanidins are clinically proven to support eye health for a superior eye and vision supplement

Overview And Ingredients
The leading cause of blindness in adults over 40 is the degeneration of the macula of the eyes, called age-related macular degeneration or AMD. Those at the greatest risk of experiencing macular degeneration are smokers, baby boomers, women, and those with light-coloured irises. Macular degeneration disables this retinal function, leaving only a margin of peripheral vision. A lifetime of exposure to solar light causes degeneration of the macula tissue, unless they are regularly supplied with the dietary pigment, lutein. The macula have been shown to concentrate dietary lutein, and convert some of it into zeaxanthin, another protective pigment. These pigments are able to absorb harmful blue light, and reduce damage due to sun exposure. Lutein may also help prevent cataracts, caused by solar damage to the lens. Lutein with Bilberry Extract, and multi-anthocyanidins is a potent natural vision support.
