6-10 mg for healthy eyes and skin
Products with FloraGLO® Lutein contain the same lutein naturally found in spinach, kale and other green leafy vegetables, as well as eggs.
Numerous peer-reviewed studies link the important eye-health benefits of this natural antioxidant with reducing the likelihood of age-related macular degeneration1-3and other serious eye conditions.
Newer science also reports that consumption of lutein may promote the health and improved appearance of skin.
Lutein’s benefits for eye and skin health are based in part on lutein’s antioxidant properties that provide protective effects against blue light. Lutein, present in the eye’s macula and lens, and also found in the skin, filters high-energy blue wavelengths of visible light from both natural sunlight and indoor light. Lutein also quenches free radicals that may lead to oxidative stress that can damage cells in these tissues. Studies indicate that daily intakes of 6 mg to 10 mg are beneficial for promoting eye and skin health.
