Well known for its anti-cataract properties among natural antioxidants and carotenoids. Studies show a major cause for cataract formation are free radicals (damaging molecules) which mediate the formation of a cataract. They form a filter (macula pigment) over the part of the retina responsible for detailed vision. This filter blocks out blue light and haze from strong light which increases the eyes’ tolerance for bright light. In a healthy eye, we see fine details and can distinguish between different objects (contrast) and recover sight after a flash of bright lights. Evidence points to Lutein as playing a role in healthy visual performance.
