Lutein 20 mg 30 Softgels from Dee Cee Laboratories‚ Inc.® may support and maintain eye health and vision. Lutein is one of the major carotenoids found in the form of the color pigment in the eyes. It might act as a filter and protect the tissues in the eyes from sun damage. Lutein is called a carotenoid vitamin because it portrays similarities to vitamin A and beta-carotene.
Lutein is concentrated in the retinas of the eyes and is a necessary component for healthy vision. It also works as an antioxidant to reduce the damage done by free radicals. Foods rich in lutein include broccoli‚ spinach‚ kale‚ corn‚ orange peppers‚ kiwi‚ grapes‚ zucchini‚ and squash. An alternate source for lutein would be a supplement like this one from Dee Cee Laboratories‚ Inc.®.
Studies show that lutein is present in the macula of healthy eyes and could provide antioxidant aid to the eyes. Antioxidants have the ability to fight and prevent the activity of unstable molecules called free radicals. These molecules are strong enough to cause serious damage to cells and DNA. A particular study shows that higher levels of lutein and other antioxidants could be associated with healthier blood vessels. Lutein is sometimes called the ‘eye vitamin’.
Lutein is found in large quantities in the eyes‚ where the concentration seems to reduce with age. As the amount of lutein reduces‚ there are more chances for macular degeneration that could cause loss of vision.
Lutein 20 mg 30 Softgels from Dee Cee Laboratories‚ Inc.® might provide optimum amounts of lutein to maintain good vision.
