Vitacost ROOT2 Lutein Softgels 20mg
What is lutein?
- Lutein is a compound found in fruits and vegetables (especially dark leafy greens) and egg yolks. Lutein is a member of the carotenoid family. It is an antioxidant that can help protect healthy cells from free radical damage.*
- Lutein is found naturally in the body, concentrated in the macula of the eyes. The macula, located in the center of the retina, is responsible for producing the sharp central vision required to see fine detail (for reading, sewing, etc.). Lutein helps protect the macula by scavenging free radicals and filtering out potentially dangerous, high-energy blue light and ultraviolet radiation.*
- The body cannot make lutein on its own; it must be consumed through diet or supplements. Studies recommend obtaining 6 mg to 20 mg of lutein daily for eye health and antioxidant protection.*
