Lutein and Zeaxanthin are not made in the body, so you have to get them from your diet. While Lutein can be found in a variety of foods like leafy green vegetables, peppers, mangoes, and egg yolks, many Americans still do not get enough through diet alone for optimal eye health.* On average, Americans are estimated to get less than 2mg of lutein per day from the food they eat.1
Lutein has been shown to be beneficial to long-term visual health.2* It may be of particular importance for digital device users to ensure their eyes are getting the proper nutrition, as it helps filter out blue light.* In another study, Lutein had a significant improvement in visual acuity, eye pigment and optical density when compared to the placebo.3*

Lutein is stored in your eye's macula, where it plays an important role in eye health.* Lutein and zeaxanthin are types of pigments found in plants called carotenoids. Lutein helps filter out high energy blue light from the sun and artificial light, which may otherwise induce free radical production.* Free radicals can cause oxidative stress, which may damage cells. In addition to its general benefits for the eyes, lutein helps with contrast sensitivity, one of the key factors contributing to night vision.* Lutein is also important for eye health for frequent users of digital devices and computers.*
