Lutein: What It Is and Benefits
As a carotenoid, Lutein is a pigment that is responsible for giving fruits and veggies their bright and deep colors. It has recently been popularized as a vision and eye health supplement, often taken in combination with Zeaxanthin. These two are commonly taken as an alternative remedy for cataracts and macular degeneration, and also provide a range of other eye related benefits.
People generally consume lutein for cataracts because of its powerful antioxidant effects. Cataracts disease can cause vision loss from the growth of patches in and around the front of your eye. This is caused by the oxidation of lens structures, a process that lutein can slow or even prevent. The antioxidant effects are amplified when lutein is combined with zeaxanthin.
Lutein is also believed to have a few non-vision related benefits. Since its naturally present in the brain, there are many studies being done on its potential of slowing down age-related cognitive deterioration and the likelihood of reversing damaged cognitive functions.
