Your eyes are under constant abuse from sunlight, UV rays, free radicals, smoke, pollution, environmental toxins - you name it. And, if you're not careful, this abuse can be very unhealthy for your eyes.
That's where our lutein supplement, called Lutein Plus with FloraGLO can help.
Lutein Plus supports healthy macula: The macular pigment is the yellow pigment spot found at the center of your retina known as the macula. Your macular pigment is made up of two carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect your macula from harmful light and keep your vision clear and healthy. Lutein, specifically 10 mg of lutein, has been studied in patients with age-related vision concerns. The results? Remarkable! At the end of this particular study, it was shown that those individuals taking lutein boosted macular pigment levels and also showed significant change in visual sharpness compared to a placebo.+ But we don’t use ordinary lutein; we use FloraGLO lutein, a more absorbable form your body can easily utilize so you’re getting maximum vision benefit with Lutein Plus.
The importance of zeaxanthin: Even if you're protecting your eyes from damage and you're seeing better at night with FloraGLO lutein, you still have to worry about keeping your vision clear. And for this you need great circulation in your eyes and additional protection for their lenses. The good news is Lutein Plus, our advanced lutein supplement, solves both of these problems with a breakthrough that takes you far beyond typical eye nutrients.
Zeaxanthin is the second part of the macular pigment. It is also a powerful antioxidant typically found in fruits and vegetables. Zeaxanthin is vital for clear vision because it protects the blood vessels and capillaries that supply your macular region. These are important because they delivery oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to your whole eye: macula, retina, lenses and more. Zeaxanthin is concentrated in the lenses of your eyes, and having enough of the antioxidant protects them from the most damaging portions of the light spectrum. Zeaxanthin shields your lenses from sun rays, computer screens, TV screens, fluorescent lights and other forms of harmful light like "internal sunglasses." Unfortunately, as you age you have less Zeaxanthin in your eyes - so it is wise to replenish it daily.
Added benefits of vitamin A: Vital for your eyes' health because it helps maintain the integrity of the membranes around your eyes. It also works to protect your eyes from the environment. It is found in foods like liver, fish oil and certain fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, most of us don't eat enough of these to get sufficient vitamin A intake. That's where our Lutein Plus supplement can help.
Enhanced with vitamin D: If you avoid the sun, use sunscreen, live in a northern climate or are over age 40, your vitamin D levels may be low, yet vitamin D is essential for good health. It helps your body absorb calcium more efficiently, keeps your immune system strong and promotes emotional wellness. It’s so important to good health, we’ve included a generous dose. But we don't use ordinary vitamin D. We use a form of vitamin D3 called cholecalciferol, the most active form of vitamin D and what your body makes naturally with sun exposure.
Supercharge your vision, immune and total health with this powerful formula. It's a must for anyone over 40.
