Lutein [Vital Nutrition]. Years ago, researchers established a link between a
diet rich in dark, leafy green vegetables and overall macular health. Recently,
researchers have found that adding vegetables high in the phytonutrient lutein
to your diet helps support macular health. The macula lutea is a yellow spot at
the center of the retina (the back of the eye). The density of the pigment in
the macula decreases with age. Lutein (a carotenoid) helps protect the macula
lutea because of its capacity to filter short-wave visible light. It intensifies
the yellow color of the macula and promotes lasting eye health. Due to their
antioxidant properties, lutein and zeaxanthin (another carotenoid) may also help
protect the lipid membranes of the macula lutea against oxidation. They support
eye health and visual function. Lutein may also support breast health and may be
of particular importance to women. Getting more lutein in the diet or through
supplementation is especially important for women. NSP Lutein provides 10 mg
lutein per capsule. Also available in Perfect Eyes, which provides 3 mg lutein
