Many fruits and vegetables provide lutein‚ a carotenoid that may serve as an antioxidant. While lutein can help support various tissues throughout the human body‚ its strongest impact is on your eyes. Your body is unable to produce lutein; although you're born with a certain amount of it‚ additional intake is necessary to maximize visual well-being. Maintaining healthy levels of lutein is especially important as you get older‚ since the amount naturally present in the human body may decline wih age.
Lutein is one of just two carotenoids stored in the retina. It supports good vision and ocular health by promoting the density and integrity of the macular pigment. This helps filter your exposure to light before it reaches the macula‚ which is essential given that the retina is most sensitive to damage from visible blue light. It serves as an internal form of sunglasses to provide additional protection‚ and may be more efficient than alpha tocopherol in allowing you to see more clearly.
Good dietary sources of lutein include dark‚ leafy green vegetables such as kale or spinach. However‚ eating sufficient amounts of these foods can be difficult. While quite a few multivitamins also provide lutein‚ the levels the contain may be far lower than the amount you need. A dedicated supplement like Lutein 20 mg by Pure Encapsulations is a convenient source of this carotenoid‚ which is absorbed via tubulin‚ a carotenoid-binding protein in the receptor layer of the eye. Every softgel capsule contains 20 milligrams of FloraGlo® lutein derived from marigold flower extract; this unique form may increase bioavailability.
Take one to two softgel capsules daily with meals. At the recommended dosage‚ each 60-softgel bottle of Pure Encapsulations' Lutein 20 mg should last for about one to two months.
