Lutein is a carotenoid and a “dietary bioactive” nutrient. Sometimes called the “Eye Vitamin”, Lutein (along with zeaxanthin) accumulates in the retina and along with melanin contribute to eye color and macular pigmentation. This pigmentation plays a critical role in protecting the eye from harmful blue light, kind of like built in sunglasses!
Lutein contributes to healthy vision and may prevent eye diseases like cataracts, or macular degeneration. Vitamins C and E, as well as Zinc and Omega-3 fatty acids also contribute to eye health and may have a synergistic relationship with Lutein. *
