Lutein Esters (20mg) Overview

Lutein esters like this one from NOW Foods are a more bioavailable and usable form of the nutrient lutein than simple oil suspensions, and becoming the most popular and most-recommended type of lutein supplement on market. NOW Lutein Esters are used primarily to protect the structural and functional health of the eyes. For enhanced protection, combine NOW Lutein Esters with NOW Astaxanthin and NOW Ultra Omega Fish Oil.

Lutein Esters (20mg) Description from NOW




Lutein is the active carotenoid in this plant, natural source antioxidant. It is naturally derived from marigold flowers and has a normal blend of carotenoids, including Zeaxanthin and Cryptoxanthin. Lutein is a plant pigment that is necessary to maintain the health of the macula, an area of the eye responsible for central and high acuity vision. Scientific studies have shown that Lutein may also serve to protect skin from the damage induced by UV light.

Clinically supported protection for eyes against leading cause of blindness.

! was also surprised to learn that age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is actually the leading cause of blindness in persons of Western European descent (like me) - I always thought it was diabetes. Oxidative damage is thought to be the cause of AMD so theoretically, the right kinds of antioxidants should be able to offer a measure of protective support. Well it turns out that certain antioxidants do. I started taking one softgel daily of this NOW Lutein Esters in the interest of protecting my eyesight well into the future. I can't say I've noticed anything yet, but I don't expect to - that's the nature of protective antioxidants. They're a long-term strategy like changing the oil in your car, neither one is something you do for short term improvements. I'm also taking NOW's fish oil which also protects the eyes. The study I read is here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17962470
