Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in those over 45. While it is estimated that 20 to 25 mg lutein a day is necessary in order to provide protection, modern diets generally provide 2 mg or less a day. Lutein supplementation can prevent or slow down the development of macular degeneration. A recent study shows that lutein helps to reverse certain symptoms of AMD.
The antioxidant carotenoid lutein is particularly concentrated in the macula, where it protects against age-related macular degeneration and oxidative stress. The macula is situated behind the lens and is responsible for detailed vision and colour differentiation.
