Also known as plant lutein, it is found in nature with Zeaxanthin.Lutein and zeaxanthin are the main components of plant pigments such as maize, vegetables, fruits and flowers, as well as the main pigments in the retinal macular area of the human eye.In nature, lutein is highest in dark green leafy vegetables such as kale, kale and spinach, as well as marigold and marigold flowers.Human eyes contain high amounts of lutein and zeaxanthin, but these two elements is made, the body cannot must rely on food containing lutein and zeaxanthin to supplement, if lack of these two elements, eyes will fail.
Lutein is a beneficial nutrient found in certain vegetables, fruits and egg yolks.It belongs to the carotenoid family.Carotenoids are chemicals associated with vitamin A.Alpha-carotene is known as A precursor to vitamin A, but in this family there are about 600 other compounds that need to be understood.They also have a lot of lutein, such as prun-carotene, lycopene, maize xanthan, and caoutine.
In the plant world, carotenoids such as lutein are mainly used to color vegetables and fruits such as sweet potatoes, carrots and so on.Lutein and zeaxanthin form the main pigments in the center of the retina, the most visually sensitive.Although lutein is not considered a necessary nutrition, but research has shown that it is to maintain normal vision and play a big role, prevent eye diseases such as senile macular degeneration (age - related macular degeneration, ARMD), cataracts (cataracts), etc.Adequate intake of carotenoids can also reduce the risk of colorectal cancer and heart disease.
Lutein and other carotenoids are considered antioxidant.Antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals, a destructive byproduct of normal metabolism.Free radicals in the body rob other molecules of electrons and damage cells and genes, a process called oxidation.By the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture, the USDA) Agricultural Research, Agricultural Research Service) studies show that lutein like vitamin E to fight free radicals, which is a powerful antioxidant.Lutein concentration is found in the retina and in crystals and protects the eye by neutralizing free radicals and increasing the density of pigment.Lutein also has a shading effect for destructive glare.In 1997 the journal of Experimental Research on Eye (Experimental Eye Research) in the journal published a small study showed that lutein can significantly reduce reach eyes sensitive parts of the blue light damage to human body, to participate in the experiment of two subjects per day for five consecutive months is equivalent to 30 mg lutein.
