Lutein for Eyes Supplement - 20 mg pills for Macular Degeneration

If you haven’t heard of lutein, you’re probably wondering, what is a lutein supplement? Lutein is a naturally occurring substance synthesized by plants. Supersmart’s lutein for eyes supplements are extracted naturally and directly from marigolds (Tagetes erecta), making our supplement 100 percent free of pesticides, dioxin and GMOs, and it has GRAS status (Generally recognized as safe).

Lutein Benefits

The biggest health benefit of lutein supplements is related to vision. Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in those over 45. And while it is estimated that 20 to 25 mg of lutein a day is necessary in order to protect your eyes, modern diets generally provide 2 mg or less a day.

Simply put, lutein supplementation can prevent or slow down the development of macular degeneration. Lutein, a carotenoid that behaves similar to antioxidants, 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 color differentiation.

This is just one of many lutein supplement benefits that have been researched.

What’s in our lutein supplement?

The best lutein supplement will provide the proper daily dosage and should be easily absorbed.

Our lutein eye supplement contains 20 mg of free lutein from 80 mg of marigold extract (Tagetes erecta), standardized to 25% free lutein.

Studies show lutein pills may help reduce the risk or prevent age-related macular diseases, which would otherwise lead to vision impairment or blindness. And, because our pure lutein supplement comes in the form of lutein pills, you will also receive the benefit of having a formulation that’s easy to absorb.

And that’s why you should choose Supersmart’s luteinizing hormone supplement

Are there any lutein side effects?

Studies show there are very few lutein supplement side effects. One study that lasted more than five years found the only potential side effect was yellowing of the skin, but it wasn’t considered harmful.

Another study found that while taking lutein for macular degeneration, a woman developed microscopic crystals in her eyes after taking a supplement daily and eating a high-lutein diet for eight years. The study found she also experienced no issues with her sight and her visual acuity was 20/20 OD and OS. Other research shows taking up to 0.45 mg of lutein per body pound is completely safe.

However, while lutein supplements are considered safe to take, you should consider speaking with a healthcare provider before starting any sort of new supplement regimen. Depending on what health concerns you have or medications you take, a professional might suggest doing something different.

For most healthy individuals, taking lutein 20 mg pills is a great way to support overall optical health.

Our lutein for eyes formula comes in a bottle with 60 capsules. Each capsule contains 20 mg, the ideal lutein supplement dosage. And, as one of the best lutein eye supplements available, it's guaranteed to absorb faster and more efficiently than many other lutein supplements.

We recommend taking one capsule of our lutein supplement for macular degeneration each day. This dosage ensures the lutein vision supplements you purchase last for sixty days, providing a great value.

Still, you may be wondering when to take a lutein supplement. The best time of day to take a lutein supplement is any time you eat a meal. Our formula absorbs best when taken with food, so the best time to take our lutein supplement is either with breakfast, lunch or dinner.
