100677 Lutein Softgel Capsule (vit Eye) 50 New

Indications: Lutein is known to improve or even prevent age-related macular disease which is the leading cause of blindness and vision impairment.

Lutein is a type of vitamin in the carotenoid family. It is similar to beta-carotene and vitamin A, making it good at treating many different eye disorders. Lutein can be naturally found in food like egg yolks, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash.

Lutein supplements are also available and can be taken orally to prevent eye diseases, especially ones that lead to vision loss in older adults (age-related macular degeneration or AMD), and cataracts.

Each lutein capsule contains:

  • Lutein

What are the lutein capsules used for?

The vit-eye lutein capsules can be used to treat the following:

  • Age-related macular degeneration or AMD
  • Cataracts

How much and how often should you use the product?

Lutein capsules are taken orally. Consult your doctor on the right dosage or number of capsules you should be taking each day based on your age, overall health, and medical conditions.

It is recommended that you should take one capsule every day. Some AMD trials have used lutein in 10 to 20 mg per day for 3 to 6 months. Again, consult with your doctor for the appropriate dose.

Lutein supplements are best taken with high-fat meals because lutein is a fat-soluble nutrient. Omega-3 rich food like tuna, salmon, eggs, and avocado work well with lutein.

Mechanism of Action

Lutein is naturally present in the macula of the human retina and functions as a filter of potentially phototoxic blue light and near-ultraviolet radiation. It is able to do so, in part, due to the reactive oxygen species quenching ability of the carotenoids, which lutein is a part of. Lutein is more stable to decomposition by pro-oxidants as compared to other carotenoids like beta-carotene and lycopene. Carotenoids have also been found to provide protection against cancer. One mechanism of this is by increasing the expression of the protein connexin-43, which then stimulates the gap junctional communication and prevents uninhibited cell proliferation.
