Protect the soft tissue of your eyes with this dynamic antioxidant from Swanson Health Products. Lutein is one of the major antioxidants from the carotene group and can help not only support your vision but deliver healthier skin & cardiovascular assistance too.
Existing as one of over six hundred naturally occurring carotenoids (powerful antioxidants), Lutein is known to be an incredible boon to our immune systems. The clever folk at Swanson have managed to isolate that carotenoid and package it, ready for your use in just a solitary daily softgel capsule.
Antioxidants are nutrients which help in the fight against rogue cells called 'free radical cells' which can be dangerous and even carcinogenic. This particular antioxidant, Swanson Lutein, is most commonly found in spinach, kale and eggs. In fact, as a carotenoid, it is actually what gives yolks their yellow colour.
More than just a colour pigment though, Swanson Lutein is a powerful ally in the constant battle to keep your vision, skin and cardiovascular system in good check. Best to be taken with a meal including some fat content, Swanson Lutein is truly a welcome addition to your nutritive repository.
Lutein is found in several different areas of the body and by using Swanson Lutein you can help supplement those important bodily functions with little to no hassle or change to your daily routine.
The main way our body stores Lutein is in the eye, or the macula to be more precise. The macula is an oval-shaped, pigmented area located near the centre of the retina. Regrettably, age related macular degeneration or ARMD is relatively common as we get older and the results can be quite scary - a loss of sight in the centre of the field of vision, meaning that it's harder to recognise faces.
Fortunately Swanson Lutein can help slow this degeneration by boosting your eye's supply of Lutein in the soft tissue of the eye. And the nutritive benefits of using Swanson Lutein don't stop there either.
By boosting the levels of Lutein in your blood, Swanson Lutein acts by preventing the buildup of fats and cholesterol. This one of a kind antioxidant is an easy choice when it comes to making the right decisions about taking care of your body.
Just take one softgel per day with food and water. Easy.
