FloraGLO® Lutein - Your Blue Light Brandd
An Important Nutrient in Eye Supplements For Any Age1-4
Each sense is precious and indispensable. Your sight allows you to detect images, and enjoy each single moment of your life. But as you age, your visual health may decline naturally, leading to poor vision. Various eye conditions may also appear overtime due to family history or poor lifestyle choices. And even with 20/20 vision, your eyes may not be performing at their best.
One of the main culprits that can negatively impact eye health is overexposure to harmful wavelengths of blue light. Blue light is a component of visible light and you are exposed to it without even realizing it. Nearly every source of light - whether natural or artificial - emits blue light.5-7 In fact, our eyes are exposed to it all day long, both indoors and out, and at ever-increasing levels.7 Because our eyes can't filter blue light on its own, overexposure may lead to short and long term effects and negatively impact vision.8,9,14,15,16 Click here to see an infographic filled with information and statistics on blue light.
That’s why, regardless of your age, there is something you can do to protect your eyes and maintain healthy vision for a lifetime.

FloraGLO® - Protecting Eyes from Harmful Blue Light (with laser demonstration)
What is Lutein and Zeaxanthin?
Lutein (LOO-teen) and zeaxanthin (zee-uh-zan-thin) are important nutrients that our bodies use to protect our eyes and keep them performing at their best - through every stage of life. They are found in our diet in a variety of fruits and vegetables18, namely dark green leafy.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are the ONLY dietary nutrients selectively deposited in our eyes19, in the macula lutea to create a protective layer known as macular pigment.20,21This protective layer is our eye’s natural defense against harmful blue light.
Lutein and zeaxanthin prevent damage from blue light wavelenghts by acting like a:
Did you know?
Your body can’t produce lutein or zeaxanthin and the levels of lutein or zeaxanthin present in the macular pigment of your eye can decrease with age leaving your eyes unprotected and vulnerable?22
Therefore, it’s important to replenish your lutein and zeaxanthin levels daily through diet and supplementation.
Are you getting enough? Probably not
Eating green, leafy vegetables like spinach, kale or broccoli provides the best dietary sources of lutein and zeaxanthin. But it’s difficult to get the lutein and zeaxanthin your eyes need from diet alone. If you’re like most Americans, your daily diet only provides about 1-2 mg of lutein and zeaxanthin.23
