Scientific evidence indicates that Lutein helps filter out high energy blue-light from the sun and artificial light, which may otherwise induce oxidative stress and possible free radical damage to the eyes and skin. Solgar Lutein 40 mg was developed to promote eye health, healthy skin and skin hydration. This lutein supplement features FloraGLO lutein which is derived from marigold flowers.
Lutein is naturally deposited as a protective layer in the macula, a small spot in the back of the eye responsible for central vision. This layer, known as macular pigment, works like internal sunglasses inside your eyes protecting them from damaging light. Healthy macular pigment can improve your ability to react to bright flashes of light or see objects against a similar background – critical to driving at night or enjoying outdoor sports. To keep eyes healthy and protect them as they age, research indicates that people need 10 mg of lutein everyday through dietary sources and products containing lutein.
While lutein is widely recognized as an essential eye nutrient for its ability to filter damaging blue light and quench free radicals, research shows it can also enhance the look of the skin. Clinical research also shows that 10 mg of lutein per day can protect the skin against visible signs of aging caused by the sun and environmental exposure. When taken orally and/or applied topically, daily consumption of products containing FloraGLO Lutein demonstrate an increase in skin hydration, lipid content and elasticity, while decreasing skin lipid peroxidation and enhancing photoprotective activity.
