Lutein and zeaxanthin are important nutrients that the body deposits in the macula of the eye to create a protective layer known as macular pigment. They work like internal sunglasses inside your eyes protecting them from damaging blue light. These powerful antioxidants keep eyes healthy and help maintain eye health and function.
New clinical research shows we need at least 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin each day in order to protect our eyes and keep them healthy, improve visual performance, and maintain eye health as we age. The body doesn’t make lutein and zeaxanthin on its own, so we must consume these important nutrients daily.
Eating green, leafy vegetables like spinach and kale provides the richest dietary sources of lutein and zeaxanthin but it’s difficult to get the required lutein and zeaxanthin your eyes need from diet alone. If you are like most Americans, your daily diet only provides 1-2 mg of lutein. Supplementing your diet with eye vitamins containing FloraGLO Lutein and OPTISHARP Natural Zeaxanthin is an easy way to bridge the gap in your diet and ensure you are getting enough of these nutrients.
Contrary to popular belief, people can address declining visual health that is typically associated with aging. Something as simple as taking a daily eye vitamin with lutein and zeaxanthin can help maintain eye health. Just because many eye conditions don’t manifest themselves until later in life, doesn’t mean we should wait until then to focus on caring for the health of our eyes. Current scientific evidence, including AREDS2, supports the intake of at least 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin daily for eye health and function.
Enhanced Visual Performance
Most people don’t realize that even with 20/20 vision, their eyes may not be performing at their peak. Glare recovery, sensitivity to bright light, distinguishing between objects and seeing fine details are things we often take for granted. The fact is, these components affect all of us and play a key role in the quality of our vision, from everyday activities and job performance to technically demanding sports.
Research in healthy adults shows that daily supplementation of 10 mg of FloraGLO and 2 mg of zeaxanthin can help increase tolerance to intensity from glaring light as well as significantly improve photostress recovery time. These nutrients have also been shown to help with chromatic contrast and visual processing speed.
