Why you should care about Lutein and
Zeaxanthin

There are approximately 600 carotenoids found in nature. Carotenoids are responsible for the bright yellows, reds, greens and oranges we see in fruits and vegetables including: yams, kale, spinach, watermelon, cantaloupe, bell peppers, tomatoes, carrots, mangoes and oranges. Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids, which are beneficial antioxidants that support your health and wellness. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the only two carotenoids that are concentrated in the macula, which is the part of your eye that processes what you see directly in front of you. They have been shown to support eye health and vision performance. Lutein and zeaxanthin are used by the body throughout life: during pregnancy, as infants, while our vision is developing; as we mature during childhood; and as our eyes become more vulnerable with age. Therefore it is imperative to get enough through our diet or supplementation.

What is the Lutein For Every Age
educational initiative?

Lutein for Every Age is a consumer education initiative, built to inspire and empower people to better understand how lutein and its lesser known carotenoid partner, zeaxanthin—two nutrients found in foods—can positively impact our eye and brain health throughout life. The campaign’s purpose is to showcase the science behind these powerful nutrients, make people aware of how low our intake of these nutrients typically is, and introduce creative ways to increase our consumption of these powerhouse nutrients no matter how old or young we are.

We further hope to raise awareness of the benefits of early and consistent lutein and zeaxanthin intake to maintain proper eye, brain, skin, and general health throughout a lifetime.
