WHY LUTEIN IS LOVE
Plants produce approximately 600 carotenoids, including lutein. One way lutein enters the human diet is through the consumption of its plant hosts, which is how carotenoids enter animals. Despite its most-publicized benefits related to eye health, lutein also appears to have several other benefits.
AMAZING BENEFITS OF LUTEIN
Research finds that lutein promotes macular pigment density and multifocal electroretinogram responses. It has also been shown to reduce the harmful effects of blue light by absorbing it, and its antioxidant properties, protecting against AMD.
It can be interchanged with Zeaxanthin, which is also helpful for eye health.
Studies found that Lutein paired with β-carotene contributed to better cognition, with Lutein playing the larger role.
The more lutein you have in your body, the lower your system-wide concentration of interleukin-6 (IL-6), a prevalent pro-inflammatory compound, will be.
