Lutein and Zeaxanthin Isomers
Lutien(Marigold) [Flower] Extract 20 mgs Zeaxanthin Isomers (Marigold) [Flower] Extract 4 mgs (from Lutemax® 2020)
Lutemax is a combination of active compounds found in vegetables,(dark green leafy vegetables and yellow to orange fruits and vegetables), and select fish (salmon, sardine, and trout). Our bodies do not produce these compounds and our diets are typically not sufficient to achieve amounts needed in today's culture. Diet and supplements are important to achieve levels to promote the best effects.
Lutemax demonstrated benefits:
- Mental/Cognitive Performance (Brain Health) – Helps enhance brain function, promotes normal cognitive function in healthy young adults, helps support mental focus during a busy lifestyle*, and helps support healthy cognitive abilities.*
- Mental Flexibility* is supported for optimal mental performance and mental efficiency* and helps support cognitive ability to focus on multiple tasks
- Concentration/memory – Helps support concentration, clarity, focus, and memory support BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor)*, assist in Increasing BDNF, a compound associated with learning memory* and helps to support mental performance by reportedly increasing BDNF by 12%. It also helps supports processing speed for faster brain function* and assist in Improving neural processing speed*
- Antioxidant - Supports brain antioxidant status* and may help in reducing oxidative stress associated with healthy brain function.*
- Eye Health - Cataracts and macular degeneration are major causes of visual impairment. Two carotenoids, lutein and 2 isomers of zeaxanthin are found in the eye and act to protect it from highly damaging blue light.*
Our bodies do not make these compounds. Lutein and zeaxanthin isomers—RR-zeaxanthin and RS (meso)-zeaxanthin—are located in the eye, speciﬁcally the macula. Acting as primary filters of high-energy blue light, lutein and zeaxanthin isomers support visual health and acuity by protecting against oxidative stress and inﬂammation. Lutemax 2020 is a naturally-derived marigold extract providing all three macular carotenoids—lutein and enhanced levels of both zeaxanthin isomers (RR-and RS [meso]-zeaxanthin)—at the same 5:1 ratio as found in nature to optimally support eye health. The three compounds, each act on a different area of the macula, and are essential for eye health, are all extracted from carefully grown marigold flowers in proportions consistent with those found in nature.
