Several new studies offer even more evidence that a branded eye health ingredient (lutein and zeaxanthin) is quickly bioavailable in the body and elicits an important response in the retina.

Researchers worked with Lutemax 2020 from OmniActive Health Technologies, based here, which contains three carotenoids—lutein, RR-zeaxanthin and RS-zeaxanthin—in a 5:1 ratio of lutein to zeaxanthin isomers. These carotenoids accumulate in the macula and deactivate blue light-generated ROS, quench free radicals, stabilize membranes and help filter blue light. Over time, blue light from smartphones, tablets, LED lights, televisions and computer screens can lead to eye fatigue, headaches, muscle spasms, blurry vision and more.
