Lutein Z™ with Antioxidants treats and protects against macular degeneration and cataract conditions. It acts as a powerful antioxidant for vision health by protecting the eyes from damage caused by light-induced free radicals. Lutein and its stereoisomer, zeaxanthin, are carotenoids that play a critical role in the maintenance of normal visual function. These compounds are the predominant carotenoids in the centre of the eye’s retina (the macula), which is responsible for fine, detailed vision.
Lutein and zeaxanthin impart yellow-orange colours to fruits and vegetables such as pumpkin and red peppers. High concentrations of lutein and zeaxanthin are responsible for the yellowish colour of the macula, and they are also the predominant carotenoids in the lens of the eye.
