Lutein and Zeaxanthin - Vision Help for Aging Eyes

Lutien and Zeaxanthin for healthy Eyes


Of the 20 to 30 carotenoids found in the human body,   Lutein and zeaxanthin are the two that are found in the highest concentration in the macula, which is the central area of the retina that is responsible for detailed vision and consequently the part that fails in AMD. It is here in the macula that these two eye protecting ingredients are believed to limit damage to our retina by quenching reactive oxygen species and by absorbing incoming damaging blue light.


A multitude of studies over the last 15 years have shown that people with a higher intake of lutein and zeaxanthin are at a decreased risk for cataracts and AMD.


A recent double-blind, placebo controlled study in 2014 showed significant vision improvement and macular pigment optical density with a daily intake of 10mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin.     Also in this same year another landmark study showed that the addition of meso-zeaxanthin made the results even more powerful.


Meso-Zeaxanthin is difficult to get from food sources and may be converted in the retina from ingested lutein, but it has been theorized that as we age we lose a lot of our ability to create meso-zeaxanthin and therefore supplementation may be crucial for aging eye health.


Most western diets are very low in lutein and zeaxanthin, and therefore as we age daily supplementation may become necessary. The two foods that have by far the highest concentrations are cooked Spinach and Kale; and if you consume a full cups worth daily then you would get an adequate amount to protect your eyes. The problem is most people are not going to consume a cup of these daily, and the next best sources would be 5 cups of corn, 6 cups of broccoli or a dozen eggs daily.


Getting the proper researched amounts of these important nutrients through diet alone is not really possible; and therefore we recommend MacuGuard Ocular Support; as it is the only eye supplement that contains the proper researched dosages of lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin; plus it also contains beneficial dosages of C3G and Astaxanthin which you are about to learn about here.
