Science overview

The science behind lutein

Known as “the eye vitamin,” lutein has been clinically shown to help protect against eye health issues, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts, and retinitis pigmentosa. Moreover, lutein has been shown to possess multiple health benefits:


  • Protects eyes from oxidative stress and filters blue light
  • Represents 75% of the carotenoids in the brain
  • Major carotenoid in breast milk and important for prenatal development
  • Important for every age
  • Shown to support healthy skin

Poor dietary intake, higher blue light exposure, and lifestyle changes are creating a greater need to ensure adequate levels of this important nutrient throughout life.
