Lutein (10mg) Overview
Body First’s Lutein (20mg) contains a blend of pure lutein esters, zeaxanthin and crptoxanthin, providing powerful antioxidant and eye support. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the main carotenoids in the peripheral retina and central macula in the eye. Lutein supplementation has also been shown to benefit the heart and skin as well. *
Scientific research has revealed that lutein plays a major role in the prevention of macular degeneration and development of cataracts. This is because lutein is a building block of the macular pigment that protects the retina from free radical oxidation. Powerful carotenoids like zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin exert similar protective benefits on the eye through antioxidant protection of daily cellular functions. The development of macular generation and cataracts typically results from long periods of constant free radical damage. Supplementing with a premium blend of powerful eye antioxidants like the one offered by Body First can help prevent these diseases and promote long lasting eye health. *
