Research has shown lutein to be supportive for vision health. Inthe eye, it is found mainly in the macular region, the entire retina,ciliary iris bodies and lens.
As an antioxidant, lutein supports the body in protecting macular tissue from photo-oxidation byfiltering blue light and preventing oxidative damage by free radicalquenching. Adequate levels of lutein in the eye may potentiallybe supportive in the absorption and dissipation of damagingUV radiation.
