In order to support healthy vision‚ your body requires an array of nutrients. One of these compounds is lutein‚ a carotenoid that has antioxidant properties. Carotenoids are found in many fruits and vegetables‚ and are responsible for giving them their bright color.
Lutein is unique because it is one of only two carotenoids stored in the retina‚ which is a layer of tissue near the back of the inner eye. The retina is light-sensitive and acts like camera film‚ converting the images your lens sees into electric signals that are transported to the brain through the optic nerve.
Spinach and other leafy greens are good sources of lutein‚ but getting enough through your diet can be inconvenient. Lutein 20 mg by Pure Encapsulations provides free-form lutein that is structurally similar to the natural type contained in food.
With a supplement like Lutein 20 mg‚ you can support the density and integrity of macular pigment. The macular pigment is a yellow-colored spot that acts like a pair of sunglasses in order to protect the macula from potentially harmful blue light. This carotenoid works to screen light while providing antioxidant protection from free radicals that can cause damage to the cells involved in vision.
As you age‚ increasing your lutein intake may be especially helpful. Lutein 20 mg can help your eyes function more effectively than vitamin E (alpha tocopherol). These softgels contain FloraGlo® lutein taken from natural marigold flower extract.
Take one or two softgel capsules daily‚ with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 120-softgel bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Lutein 20 mg should last from two to four months.

Overall Rating for Lutein 20 mg - 120 Softgel Capsules
Lutein is said to be good for the eyes
Ive started taking Lutein because I heard it was good for vision. Since Macular Degeneration runs in my family I am especially aware of the need to preserve my eyesight and I believe that the Lutein will help towards that.
Easy to take no negative effects.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
