Is It True That Lutein Can Protect Eyesight?
- Mar 15, 2022 -

What is Lutein?

Lutein, a carotenoid naturally present in fruits and vegetables, is a good antioxidant that protects cells from free radical damage. Lutein exists in the eyes, skin, serum, cervix, brain, heart, and chest of the human body. It is especially important for the eyes and is the most important nutrient for retina and cataracts.


Why is Lutein Important?

The eye is the organ most vulnerable to light damage in the human body. The light entering the eyes, the blue light part needs to be absorbed by lutein. In addition, free radicals generated by light can also be scavenged by lutein. After eating lutein-rich foods or lutein supplements, the concentration of lutein in the blood will increase, and the lutein on the macula of the retina will also increase, thereby reducing the chance of "age-related macular degeneration".

What benefits of lutein for our eyes?

1. Protect the retina and ensure clear vision

Lutein is a good antioxidant, which can avoid oxidative damage to the retina when it absorbs light; it can protect the capillaries of the eye and maintain good blood circulation.

2. Improve eyesight

Lutein is a highly concentrated antioxidant that can help filter out blue light, reduce chromatic aberration, and make vision more accurate.

3. Prevent glaucoma

Lutein can reduce the oxidative intensity of eyeball proteins, and the greater the intake, the lower the incidence of glaucoma.

4. Delay the occurrence of cataracts

Lutein is the only carotenoid that exists in crystals, which can enhance the antioxidant capacity of crystals, resist the damage of sunlight and free radicals, and delay or prevent the occurrence of cataracts.


In addition, lutein has other functions. Our manufacturers of lutein can provide a stable and high-quality supply. If you are interested, you are welcome to consult us at sales@botanicalcube.com.
