Maintaining Optimal Vision with Lutein

Lutein is vital for our visual health and is a naturally occurring carotenoid commonly found in leafy green vegetables, egg yolks, and other animal sources. This molecule helps our bodies fight off oxidative stress1 and plays a vital role in eye health2, including visual performance and light sensitivity3. Prior research has also shown Lutein helps reduce age-related macular degeneration4, and regular consumption of Lutein has correlated with a lower risk of developing cataracts5,6.
