Lutein is a well known carotenoid extracted from Marigold and found in the human diet, blood, and tissues. Evidence suggests that lutein consumption is inversely related to eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. This is supported by the finding that lutein is specifically deposited in ocular tissues, such as the lens and the macula lutea, an area of the retina responsible for central and high acuity vision. Lutein is believed to function in two ways: First in a photo-protective way as a filter of damaging blue light from sunlight. Second as an antioxidant that quenches free radicals and reactive oxygen species.
Function & Uses of Lutein:
Lutein is one of two major carotenoids found as a color pigment in the human eye (macula and retina). And the Lutein is thought to act as a light filter, protecting the eye tissues from sunlight damage.
