Below is a refresher on why eye health is important, why FloraGLO®Lutein raw material is superior, as well as, the benefits of Lutein and information on what it does for eyes.
Benefits check list & quick overview of what Lutein does for you:
• Provides antioxidants for the maintenance of good health.
• Promotes clear vision, fights premature skin aging.
• Helps to maintain eyesight in conditions associated with sun damage (cataracts & age related macular degeneration).
Lutein, also known as the “eye protective nutrient”, is a carotenoid (antioxidant) found in dark green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and broccoli. This nutrient has been found helpful in the treatment and prevention of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in older adults. As some find it challenging to obtain sufficient lutein through diet, supplements are extremely convenient and beneficial – but not all are created equal. Alive Vitamins FloraGLO® Lutein, is recognized by nutritional supplement companies worldwide as a quality product that will maintain its stability and potency. Extracted from marigold flower petals, FloraGLO® Lutein has a unique and innovative purification process that has earned it patent protection in the United States, Canada and other countries. It is used in more clinical trials than any other lutein. The Alive Lutein Eye Formula also contains blueberry and bilberry, both of which contain antioxidant compounds, all working together to protect and repair the eyes. In addition, bilberry improves blood flow to the retina and this is why Alice Chung our owner and CEO takes Alive Bilberry to keep her eye health optimal.
Lutein promotes clear vision in several ways. It absorbs the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays and also blue light. In addition, lutein neutralizes free radicals in the retina which is the light sensitive part of the eye. In the center of the retina, directly behind the lens, is the macula. The cells in this area help produce the clarity of vision needed to read and see objects. A key measurement of eye health is the density of macular pigment because macular pigment protects the retina. Lutein and its co-existing molecule zeaxanthin (found in FloraGLO® Lutein) are the main antioxidant pigments and the only carotenoids found in the macula and lens.
Did you know that Lutein also Fights Premature Skin Aging?
Alice Chung our owner and CEO takes Alive Super Collagen, Alive Grape Seed Extract, Alive Alpha Lipoic Acid, Alive Hyaluronic Acid and Alive Vitamins FloraGLO®Lutein and her skin does not look 72… customers that come and see her on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at Oakridge Mall in Vancouver, are always amazed at how her skin is so soft, and youthful. So how does Lutein also work for skin?
Lutein fights against free radicals and is also believed to absorb blue light as it penetrates skin layers. In studies, lutein has been shown to increase skin hydration and elasticity and to decrease skin lipid peroxidation. Lipids are oily components in the skin that provide a barrier inhibiting loss of moisture from the skin.
Lastly, Alice and our team have assisted many people who are concerned or dealing with Macular Degeneration. Lutein and Bilberry are the perfect combination.
For best results:
