- Antioxidants for the maintenance of eye health
- Protection against macular degeneration
- Reduces the risk of developing cataracts
Bill Natural Sources® Lutein and Zeaxanthin work together to promote sharper and clearer eyesight and to relieve eye disorders. Lutein and zeaxanthin are naturally occurring fat-soluble xanthophyll carotenoids synthesized by highly pigmented vegetables and fruits. Lutein and zeaxanthin do not naturally occur in humans so we have to depend on diet and supplements. Lutein and zeaxanthin accumulate in the macular region of the retina and act as antioxidants, helping to protect and maintain healthy eye cells.
Deficiency in lutein or zeaxanthin may cause eye diseases including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and retinitis pigmentosa. Some of these diseases are caused due to damaged done by free radicals, which can be reduced with the use of antioxidants such as lutein and zeaxanthin. Some studies have shown that lutein and zeaxanthin supplements are much more effective at reducing AMD when compared to using supplements containing Vitamin A, Vitamin C or Vitamin E. Increased amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin are inversely associated with rates of AMD.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are effective at blue-light absorptions. Blue-light can generate reactive oxygen species which can cause cell damage in our eyes. Due to the blue-light absorption properties of lutein and zeaxanthin, they indirectly prevent damage done by blue-light and further reduce any damage done due to their antioxidant properties
Also, lutein and zeaxanthin are associated with the processing of visual signals within and post-retina. Even in young healthy clinical subjects, supplementation of lutein and zeaxanthin led to increased visual processing speeds and cognitive performances.
