NATURAL FACTORS EYE FACTORS
Lutein is the principal carotenoid concentrated in the macula, the central area of the retina responsible for vision. Lutein and companion carotenoid zeaxanthin work in synergy to provide nutritional support to our eyes and skin – the only organs of the body directly exposed to the outside environment.
Natural Factors Eye Factors provide comprehensive nutritional support for eye health.
Lutein and zeaxanthin filter harmful high-energy blue wavelengths of light and help protect and maintain healthy cells in the eyes. Of the 600 carotenoids found in nature, only these two are deposited in high quantities in the retina (macula) of the eye.
Below are some conditions with which lutein and zeaxanthin may help:
- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD): Consumption of lutein and zeaxanthin may protect against AMD progression to blindness*
- Cataracts: Cataracts are cloudy patches at the front of your eye. Eating foods rich in lutein and zeaxanthin may slow their formation*
- Diabetic retinopathy: In animal diabetes studies, supplementing with lutein and zeaxanthin has been shown to reduce oxidative stress markers that damage the eyes*
- Uveitis: This is an inflammatory condition in the middle layer of the eye. Lutein and zeaxanthin may help reduce the inflammatory process involved*
