PreserVision® Lutein by Bausch + Lomb
PreserVision Lutein is a high-potency antioxidant vitamin and mineral supplement for eye health
The Soft gels contain the caretenoid Lutein for Macula health, plus high levels of the anti-oxidant Vitamins C and E and zinc.
PreseVision Lutein contains no Vitamin A (betacarotene) and so is suitable and safe for smokers (some studies have found that in smokers and ex-smokers, taking Vitamin A supplements can increase the risk of lung cancer)
Lutein is highly concentrated in the macula, the part of the retina responsible for central vision.
It plays a part in cell repair, renewal and protection and is a building block of macular pigments
Macular pigments absorb harmful blue light and protect the retina
As we age, the level of macula pigment reduces.
Lutein can't be manufactured by the body - it comes solely from our diet.
It can be difficult to obtain sufficient quantities of lutein, from diet alone
Taking regular supplements of lutein and some other substances was found to reduce the progression of Age Related Macular Degeneration in those who already had it, in the Age Related Eye Disease Study
Pack size: 60 capsules : 1 months supply (take 2 capsules per day)
Each capsule contains 5 mg of FloraGlo Lutein per soft gel, which gives 10 mg of lutein per day.
