What is lutein?

Lutein, an Eye Health Supplement

Lutein is another antioxidant very important to eye health. This eye health supplement can help prevent eye diseases such as macular degeneration, and is found naturally in many fruits and vegetables like spinach, kale, broccoli, corn, peas, and others. If you don't eat enough fruits and vegetables, you can look for an eye health supplement that included lutein to help make sure your eyes remain healthy throughout your life.

You need to take at least 6mg of lutein per day to help reduce the risk of eye diseases, so look for an eye health supplement that contains at least this much lutein in the daily dosage. Many experts believe up to 10 mg of lutein per day is an even better amount to look for in your eye health supplement. Check with your doctor to find out the right amount for you so you can choose just the right eye health supplement with lutein.
