Nutrition for the eyes
Lutein
and zeaxanthin are natural plant pigments that are found in high concentrations in the retina, where they are components of macular pigment. As potent antioxidants, they have an important role in protecting the eye from oxidative damage. They also protect sensitive retinal cells by absorbing blue light, which is especially damaging to eyes. Lutein's antioxidant functions also help to protect against the development of cancer.

Cataracts and AMD
Cataracts and age related macular degeneration (AMD) are leading causes of blindness. They are caused by an accumulation of protein damage in the eye. Many clinical trials have found that lutein can reduce the risk of developing these disorders, and can slow their development once it has begun. Lutein also has benefits for the vision of younger people. It has been found to reduce the effects of glaring light and to improve visual performance in healthy eyes.

Vision protection
Lutein
and zeaxanthin are important for the eyes. As supplements, they are well absorbed and resistant to deterioration. AOR's Lutein helps prevent the development of eye disorders, and keeps healthy eyes functioning at their best.

Age related macular degeneration is a common problem that affects approximately 80% of people 75 years or older. Cataracts are another very common eye condition. They are present in more than 50% of persons 65-74 year old and 65% of those over the age of 75.

The greatest eye health benefits associated with nourishment come from foods high in lutein. Lutein and zeaxanthin are stereoisomers (mirror images) and the only carotenoids (natural plant pigment) found in the eyes.

What is Lutein?
Lutein
and zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally present in the lens and macula of the human retina. They are strong antioxidants and prevent oxidation and photo damage in the structures of the eye. The eyes are particularly vulnerable to free radicals and both the lens and the retina are extremely fragile and need to be protected. Lowering the oxidative stress affecting the macula may help prevent age related macular degeneration.

What can Lutein do for me?
Lutein's
protective effect on the eyes is threefold. The antioxidant filters out blue light, which damages the macula over time, it protects the vasculature of the macular region and it prevents the oxidation of the fatty acids in the phosphoreceptor membrane.

The development of lens opacities such as the formation of cataracts is due to changes in the proteins that make up the lens fiber. The protein damage is related to exposure to UV light. The presence of antioxidants in the lens of the eye reduces oxidation and damage incurred to proteins through photo-oxidation. Lutein is also found in the macula of the eye and it filters blue light, which protects underlying ocular structures from photo damage. Studies show that lutein is not only good at preventing macular degeneration; it is also a good treatment early in the disease process.

Diets containing at least 6 mg of lutein per day reduced the incidence of age related macular degeneration by 43 %. Lutein also reduced the incidence of cataract formation and slowed their development. On an epidemiological level, those found to have the greatest intake of lutein had a decreased risk of undergoing cataract surgery.

Cataract formation in people consuming lutein from spinach was 50% lower. In contrast, lutein levels were 40% lower in people affected by age related macular degeneration.

Research
Patients taking supplemental lutein had increased pigmentation in the macular region. They also had significant improvement in ocular function tests, such as: glare recovery, contrast sensitivity, and visual acuity. Diminution of age related macular degeneration and cataract formation were seen with supplementation. Healthy adults receiving lutein/zeaxanthin supplements over six months had an average increase of 39% in the density of macular pigments, and these increases were significantly associated with decreased glare disability and photostress recovery times.
Studies have shown that lutein and zeaxanthin suppress cell division of breast cancer cells and lutein has been linked to immune enhancement in animal studies. It is thought that lutein protects the skin against UV light oxidative stress.

An excellent choice for eyes
Lutein
is a potent antioxidant with proven benefit for the eyes and is an excellent choice for anyone trying to improve and preserve vision and ocular function. It protects the lens and the macula of the eyes and the skin against UV light. It is a strong antioxidant and has been shown to have anti-carcinogenic properties. Lutein provides protection and support to counteract eye damage that accumulates over time.
