Lutein is a carotenoid which is present in our daily diet since it is found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach. However, the intake needed to notice its health benefits is very high (6-10 mg per day), according to research.
As other carotenoids, lutein is an effective antioxidant that protects from blue light absorption and it is also, selectively, accumulated in the macula of human retina, and filters potentially phototoxic blue light and near-ultraviolet radiation. In addition, several studies demonstrate that Lutein reduces the risk of macular degeneration. Due to this, presence of lutein has been associated with a healthy vision. Lutein not only supports eye health, but also reduces the skin´s sensibility against UV light damages.
