Pure Encapsulations Lutein-Zeaxanthin offers support for eyes. The retina is a form of tissue located at the back of the inner eye. This tissue is light-sensitive, meaning that its functioning is managed by exposure to light (thats why it is harder to see in dim light, and impossible to see things in total darkness). Above all, the retina acts like a camera by retrieving the images that come from the lenses and converting them into electric signals that then reach your brain through the optic nerve. Like any camera, it has to be maintained in order to stay in optimal condition; older equipment tends to require additional care, as well. Carotenoids like zeaxanthin and lutein can help manage ocular health, especially during the aging process. Lutein-Xeaxanthin by Pure Encapsulations provides the major carotenoid pigments that are stored in the central portion of the retina, known as the macula. They may help maintain the functioning of its photoreceptors and its ability to focus through their formation of a protective layer; this protective layer helps filter light, like internal sunglasses. Both of these carotenoids also have antioxidant properties. They work to support the density and quality of macular pigment, which is dark yellow. The macula is responsible for absorbing excess ultraviolet and blue light, while also promoting high-resolution central vision. Recommended use: 1 capsule daily with a meal, or as directed by a healthcare professional.
