Lutein is a well known carotenoid found in the human diet, blood,
and tissues. Evidence suggests that lutein consumption is inversely
related to eye diseasessuch as age-related macular degeneration
(AMD) and cataracts. This is supportedby the finding that lutein is
specifically deposited in ocular tissues, such asthe lens and the
macula lutea, an area of the retina responsible for centraland high
acuity vision. Lutein is believed to function in two ways: First in
aphoto-protective way as a filter of damaging blue light from
sunlight. Secondas an antioxidant that quenches free radicals and
reactive oxygen species.
