What are Lutein & Zeaxanthin and why are they so important?

Carotenoids, such as lutein and zeaxanthin, are beneficial antioxidants that can help protect your health and wellness. Carotenoids are responsible for the bright yellows, reds, greens and oranges we see in foods including yams, kale, spinach, watermelon, cantaloupe, bell peppers, tomatoes, carrots, mangoes and oranges.

Specifically, lutein and zeaxanthin are concentrated in the macula of our eyes. They have been shown to protect healthy cells in the eyes and therefore getting enough through diet or supplementation is important for eye health and vision performance throughout life.

In summary:

  • The body cannot make macular carotenoids—dietary intake is the only way to get beneficial amounts
  • Most people are not eating the necessary servings of fruits and vegetables a day to get adequate amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin
  • Foods rich in lutein and zeaxanthin are: kale, spinach, broccoli, peas, lettuce and egg yolks
  • The benefits of the macular carotenoids are cumulative
  • Now, more then ever, we are dependent upon our digital devices for work and play, leading to excessive blue light exposure
  • Lutein and zeaxanthin have been shown to protect our eyes from within, helping to filter out the high energy blue light from digital screens

Benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation

Did You Know?

1 in 10 US adults and only 1 in 11 US children eat the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables per day. And, since our bodies can not produce lutein and zeaxanthin, we MUST get it through our diets.

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.
