Lutein is naturally found in a number of fruits and vegetables, especially those with deep green, orange, and yellow coloring. Lutein is a type of xanthophyll often used in treatment or prevention of eye diseases. Lutein supplements contain a natural substance classified as a carotenoid—a group of plant pigments with antioxidant effects. Lutein supplements provide a more concentrated supply of this antioxidant.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are two types of carotenoids, yellow to red pigments found widely in vegetables and other plants. Though lutein is considered a yellow pigment, it appears orange-red in high concentrations.
In nature, lutein (LOO-teen) and zeaxanthin (zee-ah-ZAN-thin) appear to absorb excess light energy to prevent damage to plants from too much sunlight, especially from high-energy light rays called blue light.
In addition to being found in many green leafy plants and colorful fruits and vegetables, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in the macula of the human eye, giving the macula its yellowish color. In fact, the macula also is called the "macula lutea" (from the Latin macula, meaning "spot," and lutea, meaning "yellow").
Recent research has discovered a third carotenoid in the macula. Called meso-zeaxanthin, this pigment is not found in food sources and appears to be created in the retina from ingested lutein.
Lutein and zeaxanthin appear to have important antioxidant functions in the body. Along with other natural antioxidants, including vitamin C, beta-carotene and vitamin E, these important pigments guard the body from damaging effects of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can destroy cells and play a role in many diseases.
In addition to important eye and vision benefits, lutein may help protect against atherosclerosis (buildup of fatty deposits in arteries), the disease that leads to most heart attacks.
1. Promoting the healthy of eye and skin through reducing the risk of macular degeneration, supporting normal eye functions, and protecting the retina by blocking the harmful blue light.
2. Eliminating free-radicals, protecting the human body from improving immunity, protecting skin from the harmful solar ray.
3. Eye Health Benefits
A 2018 review of research concluded that there are many studies supporting lutein beneficial effects on eye health. The researchers suggested that not only should a diet rich in fruits and vegetables containing lutein be encouraged, they also suggested that supplementation could be beneficial, particularly in populations at high risk of certain conditions such as the elderly.
Lutein is a widely found in vegetables, flowers, fruits and other plants in the natural material, living in "Class carrot category of" family matter, now known to exist in nature, more than 600 types of carotenoids, only about 20 species exist in the person's blood and tissues. In the human body found in carotenoids include d a-carotene, P1 carrot category,cryptoxanthin, lutein, lycopene, and are not flavin. Medical experiments prove that the plant contains a natural lutein is an excellent anti-oxidant in food by adding a certain amount of lutein can prevent cellular senescence and aging body organs, but can also prevent age-related macular degeneration eye due to decreased vision and blindness,through a series of medical research, carotenoids have been proposed as cancer prevention agents, life-prolonging agent, ulcers resist agent, a heart attack and coronary artery disease resistance agent.
