Lutein is a carotenoid naturally found in the eye
Lutein is a carotenoid that is naturally concentrated in the eye. The content of Lutein stored in the body can decrease due to damage caused by oxidative stress or by the natural ageing process.
This supplement is for those who are concerned about maintaining an adequate supply of lutein as they age.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are also in your eyes, especially the lens, retina, and macula. That’s why doctors believe they play a key role in healthy vision.
Lutein and zeaxanthin can help protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays in sunlight. Studies suggest that a high level of both Lutein and zeaxanthin in eye tissue is linked with better vision, especially in dim light or where glare is a problem.
Supplementing your diet with Lutein and zeaxanthin may help hold off age-related eye diseases. Some researches showed that if you have macular degeneration, supplements with lutein and zeaxanthin can slow its progress.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only carotenoids in nature out of about 600 carotenoids found in the eye. In the eye, their concentration is also considerably higher than elsewhere in the body.
Carotenoids are not produced by the body itself, so they must be obtained from food. Spinach and other green vegetables contain some lutein and zeaxanthin, but they are especially abundant in the isosvet flower, from which the lutein and zeaxanthin in the VisioBalance® Junior dietary supplement are also derived.
Lutein and zeaxanthin protect important visual pigments in the eye, especially the macula, from the harmful effects of blue light and sunlight, prevent oxidation of the visual pigment, and maintain vision.
Lutein and zeaxanthin enhance the adaptation of the eye to varying amounts of light and improve twilight and contrast vision.
