Lutein Lutein

Scitec Essentials Lutein is a natural dietary supplement containing lutein obtained from Mexican marigold (Tagetes erecta). The plant is believed to be the best source of lutein and zeaxanthin, as it contains the compounds in their highly assimilable esterified forms. The preparation is designed to protect the eyes from oxidative damage. The recommended portion provides 6 mg of lutein, including 300 mcg of zeaxanthin.

The basic factor in multiple degenerative diseases and inflammations in the organism is oxidative stress, which results from the activity of free radicals, such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). Free radicals can interfere with the structure of cell elements: genetic material, protein, sugar, and lipids, that way leading to their dysfunctions and, consequently, diseases and disorders in the functioning of the eyes.

Carotenoids are natural, highly antioxidant compounds that neutralise natural oxygen species and their negative effect on the organism. They are substances present in the cellular structures of plants that give them colour and protect them from free radicals formed in the process of photosynthesis. Carotenoids are not synthesised in the human organism, so they should be regularly delivered with the diet in order to support the endogenous antioxidant system. The carotenoids that are relevant in terms of the health of the eye are lutein and zeaxanthin.

Lutein is a yellow colourant of the xanthophyll subgroup. Thanks to its powerful antioxidant activity, its synergy with zeaxanthin has the ability to neutralise free radicals in the eye. By filtering harmful UV radiation, it prevents any damage to sensitive photoreceptors, which are rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. Lutein is an important element of preventing age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataract, as it reduces the risk of developing them.

Macula lutea is found in the retina of the eye and is a place with the highest concentration of cone cells, so it is responsible for the quality and clarity of vision and colour perception.

Macular degeneration manifests itself through, for example, deteriorated vision and colour perception, distortions of the perceived picture, and may eventually lead to blindness. The disease is the most common reason of blindness in seniors in developed countries. It has been demonstrated that lutein and zeaxanthin deficiencies in the diet increase the risk of developing age-related macular degeneration and cataract.

Lutein protects low-density lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidation, that way reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular system diseases: atherosclerosis and ischaemic heart disease. Moreover, it exhibits potential anticancer activity, especially in the case of lung and bowel cancer.

Zeaxanthin, similarly to lutein, is a xanthophyll colourant. It supports lutein’s antioxidant activity and absorbs harmful blue light, preventing photoreceptor damage.

To sum up, Scitec Essentials Lutein is a dietary supplement that supports the normal functioning of the eye. The product is particularly recommended for people who feel their eyes are tired, those who work on a computer, complain of deteriorated vision, are exposed to cigarette smoke or UV radiation, and for seniors.

Lutein

Information

Lutein, a derivative of alpha-carotene is a natural plant dye, colouring in yellow, is also present in the yolk of egg. In the body, located primarily in the retina of the human eye (together with Zeaxanthin), it acts as a natural filter for the eye, absorbing ultraviolet radiation. It is a powerful antioxidant, neutralizing free radicals. Available in the form of mono-preparation supplements and multi-compound supplements with antioxidant, protecting the eyes, action, as well as multivitamins, creatine stacks and no-boosters.

Zeaxanthin

Information


Zeaxanthin is a natural plant dye, a compound classified as carotenoids found in foods of plant origin, essential for the proper functioning of vision. Located on the retina, the so-called. yellow macula, it is responsible for visual acuity. Together with lutein (belonging to the carotenoid) it is an antioxidant, also it has the ability to absorb energy of blue light protecting eyes from organ damage.
Zeaxanthin is a component of formulations (often in combination with other carotenoids) enhancing the functioning of the organs of sight.
Dosage: Up to 2 mg per day.
