Lutein is essential for our visual health and is a naturally occurring carotenoid. Lutein is a plant pigment responsible for red, yellow and orange colors in vegetables and fruits, as well as in egg yolks. Lutein supports our ability to fight off oxidative stress and plays a vital role in vision health. The superior antioxidant properties of Lutein also support skin, metabolic, and cardiovascular health in conjunction with vision health. Support for vision health includes visual performance and light sensitivity.*

Prior research has shown Lutein helps reduce age-related vision impairment, and regular consumption of Lutein has correlated with a lower risk of developing illnesses involving vision loss. Visual function is improved with lutein alone or lutein together with other nutrients. Further studies are needed with more patients, of both genders, and for longer periods of time to assess long-term effects of lutein or lutein together with a broad spectrum of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals in the treatment of atrophic age-related macular degeneration.*
