Popularly known as the “eye vitamin”, Lutein is extracted from the exquisite marigold flower. It’s packed with essential macular nutrients that are good for your eyes and help filter sunlight. There’s a few reasons it’s an award-winning ingredient for eye health: it prevents retinal damage caused by blue light from screens, improves your cognitive performance, enhances your vision, and prevents eye fatigue and headaches.
Supports Eye Health
Promotes Healthy Skin
Enhances Mental Performance
Improves Sleep Quality
- Supports Eye Health
It is estimated that a significant percentage of the population spends, on average, nine hours per day on digital devices, including smartphones, tablets and computers. These artificial light sources are known to emit high amounts of short-wavelength blue light, which may be involved in eye fatigue and strain and damage ocular tissue. These ingredients help in blocking the blue light, enhance vision – especially in dim light, neutralize the oxidative stress and protect the eye against retinal damage.
- Promotes Healthy Skin
In addition to being found within the pigments of our eyes, lutein and zeaxanthin are also present within the skin. Due to their strong antioxidant properties, the skin is protected from harmful free radicals. Additionally, lutein and zeaxanthin help to improve moisture retention and provide anti-aging effects. These nutrients help improve skin tone evenness, skin tone clarity, a decrease of erythema (irritation of the skin) and promote skin lightening.
- Enhances Mental Performance
Experts have suggested that lutein is important for mental sharpness and healthy aging of the mind. Thus, supplementing these nutrients on a regular basis helps protect the brain against the damage caused by oxidative stress and chronic inflammation, boosting its performance.
- Improves Sleep Quality
The strain on the eyes due to screen exposure may lead to poor sleep quality, which further leads to health problems. These nutrients help provide the protection and strength to your eyes, leaving them feeling relaxed and letting you get the rest you need.Read less
What Does Science Say?
- Supplemental lutein and zeaxanthin can increase the total macular pigment levels and helps to improve visual processing speed and visual-motor behavior thereby supporting the eye health. Read More
- OmniActives pioneering efforts on Lutemax® macular carotenoids (MC) went into a new application in this study, as these scientists evaluated its effects on skin protection. As it is known that macular carotenoids filter high energy blue light, the scientists searched in a 12-week trial to assess the impact of Lutemax® on skin health. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial, the treatment group received an oral dietary supplement containing 10 mg lutein (L) and 2 mg zeaxanthin isomers (Zi) (RR-zeaxanthin and RS [meso]-zeaxanthin).
