Lutax®20 Vitamins & Mineral Nutritional Supplement Containing Lutein:
Lutein protects your eyes from harmful high-energy blue wavelengths of light and help protect and maintain healthy cells in the eyes. Of the 600 carotenoids found in nature, only these two are deposited in high quantities in the retina (macula) of the eye.
The key ingredient, lutein, is a kind of carotenoid found in dark-green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli. In the human body, lutein is present in the lens or the macular region of the eye as a particularly important carotenoid. Lutein levels in the body, however, gradually decrease for several reasons including aging, exposure to ultraviolet light and smoking. Furthermore, because the body cannot produce lutein, it is important to obtain this nutrient on a regular basis through the daily diet.
