Benefits of lutein and zeaxanthin supplementation on blue-absorbing macular pigment, sleep quality and visual performance
The results of the study were published in Foods
The macular carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin isomers, are known as high-energy blue light filters. Blue light penetrates deep into the eye and can cause the formation of free radicals. In the short-term, blue light can cause eye strain and eye fatigue.
Researchers examined 48 study subjects over the course of six months. The participants were assigned to one of two groups: one group was supplemented with Lutemax 2020 (macular carotenoids) and the other group was a placebo group. What researchers discovered was a notable improvement in visual performance and increased visual processing speed, photo stress recovery and increased contrast sensitivity.
Lutemax 2020 is a component of the VisiVite R.B.I Vision Performance Formula
