Benefits for Vision and Eye Health
Lutein is one the most important member of the carotenoid family, it plays an important role in ensuring the proper functioning of the eye. Carotenoids are a group of colored pigments produced by plants. The colors are usually Red, Yellow, and the likes. Any colored part of the plant is a result of carotenoids. Lutein is part of this family of carotenoids. Lutein is contained in some food sources like vegetables.
Lutein is so much important to maintaining good sight because it is one of the essential carotenoids found on the Retina. Deficiency of it would lead to malfunction of the Retina and thereby causing vision impairment. Eye impairment like cataracts can be prevented through regular uptake of lutein. Lutein reduces the chances of developing cataracts. Lutein also helps to reduce the chances of coming up with Age-related macula denegation. This is because lutein forms part of the components of the macula. The deficiency of lutein predisposes people to age-related macula degeneration.
As carotenoids, they are important antioxidants, they help to continuously remove free radicals from the body. They can help to reduce free active radicals that can damage the eyes
Riboflavin or simply Vitamin B2 is one of the many members of Vitamin B collectively called vitamin B complex. It is found in many food sources like eggs, green leafy vegetables, and meat. Riboflavin is essential or central to many metabolic pathways in the body.
Riboflavin also helps to maintain normal vision. It can potentially help to lower the risk of coming up with cataracts. It is believed that people with a normal level of Riboflavin are less likely to develop cataracts.
