Why Lutemax Kids?

Naturally derived and sustainably sourced, Lutemax Kids delivers an efficacious dose of all three macular carotenoids [lutein, RR-zeaxanthin, and RS (meso)-zeaxanthin] in a similar 5:1 ratio as naturally found in the diet. In a recent clinical study, just 10 mg of lutein and 2 mg of zeaxanthin isomers from Lutemax Kids was shown to support both eye and cognitive health in children.

  • Provides higher levels of zeaxanthin isomers than most commercial forms
  • Available in a variety of 100% vegetarian beadlets and oil suspensions for formulation flexibility
  • Produced through a vertically integrated supply chain for sustainability, traceability, transparency, and greater assurance of supply continuity
  • Sourced from premium marigolds grown from non-GMO seeds

Science overview

Supporting eye health and cognitive performance in children

In a 6-month randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 60 children aged 5-12 years, Lutemax Kids was shown to:

  • Increase lutein and zeaxanthin status
  • Increase visual processing speed
  • Reduce eye strain and fatigue as a result of digital device use
  • Significantly improve aspects of cognitive health including attention, focus/concentration, episodic memory and more

This is the first supplementation study of lutein and zeaxanthin to be completed in children.

These data are consistent with the eye and brain health benefits in our flag ship ingredient Lutemax 2020.

Market insights

An adequate intake of the three macular carotenoids (lutein, RR-zeaxanthin, and RS (meso)-zeaxanthin) are important to support brain and eye development. Unfortunately, similar to most adults, children also tend to consume inadequate amounts of the vegetables and fruits that contain these beneficial macular carotenoids. In the US, only 1 in 11 children eat enough fruits and vegetables to get adequate amounts of carotenoids.

In this modern era of technology, where the increasing reliance on digital devices is on the rise, it is important to provide children with the necessary support for their eyes and brains. According to our proprietary Omni Insights, most children aged 4 and over, spend at least 4h a day on digital devices and 80% of parents are either extremely likely or likely to purchase a supplement to protect against the potential negative impact of blue light.
