Lutein is the main pigment that makes up the macular region of the retina of the human eye. However, this element cannot be manufactured by the human body and must be supplemented by foods containing lutein. Without these two elements, the eyes cannot work properly.
Lutein is the main pigment that makes up the macular region of the retina of the human eye. However, this element cannot be manufactured by the human body and must be supplemented by foods containing lutein. Without these two elements, the eyes cannot work properly. Studies have shown that it plays a great role in maintaining normal vision and preventing eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), cataracts and so on. Adequate intake of carotenoids may also reduce the risk of colorectal cancer and heart disease.
Lutein and other carotenoids are thought to have antioxidant properties. Antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, a damaging byproduct of normal metabolism. Free radicals in the body rob other molecules of electrons and damage cells and genes in a process called oxidation. Research conducted by the Agricultural Research Service of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) shows that lutein, like vitamin E, fights free radicals, a powerful antioxidant . Lutein is concentrated in the retina and lens and protects vision by neutralizing free radicals and increasing pigment density. Lutein also has a shading effect against damaging glare. A small study published in the journal Experimental Eye Research in 1997 showed that lutein can significantly reduce the damage caused by blue light reaching the sensitive parts of the eye.
