In nature it helps to protect the plant from being damaged by excessive sunlight. In the human body it works in a similar way, helping to protect the delicate light-sensitive tissue that line the back of the eye (the macula). A number of clinical studies have shown that diets that are low in lutein can result in diminished levels of lutein in the macula. This research backs up what your mother always told you – you need to eat your greens! If your are not eating enough of these vegetables, you might want to make sure that you are getting enough lutein by taking it as a supplement. Up to 10mg of Lutein per day has been proven by research to dramatically reduce the risk of or indeed the progression of age related macula degeneration and cataracts. Insufficient levels of lutein in the macula have been identified as a risk factor in the onset of age-related macula degeneration (AMD). Up to 10mg of Lutein per day has been proven by research to dramatically reduce the risk of or indeed the progression of age related macula degeneration and cataracts. The main ingredients in natural eye health supplements are lutein and zeaxanthin and experts agree that marigold flowers as the best source for both. Zoom Health Lutein capsules are produced using marigold flower extract. Each lutein capsule provides a full 10mg of lutein (pure, free-form) per capsule, making our natural health supplement one of the strongest available. How to take Lutein Capsules Take 1 – 2 lutein capsules per day with water Lutein is extracted from marigolds. It is absorbed by the body where it is transported to and concentrated in the macula, the most sensitive and active part of the retina. Store these lutein capsules in a cool, dry place out of reach of children. This is a food supplement which is not a substitute for a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

I’m getting on in years now and I’ve steadily noticed a decline in my vision, especially in the last few years. I had a look around on the internet and this is where I found Lutein. Its reputation in helping with poor vision seems solid. Even though I am sceptical about taking supplements, I decided to give it a go. I must admit that after a few weeks of taking the tablets I have seen an improvement in my vision, especially when driving at night. Also my eyes seem to be a lot less dry than they were before. So overall I am please with this product. Whether the effects of taking the tablets will last remains to be seen but as the are not particularly expensive to buy on this website, I will continue to take them daily.
