Carotenoid Lutein Protects Against Strong Light

Many vision scientists believe that sudden or repeated exposure to strong light, such as computer screens, cause more than just "blue spots" floating in your vision.  Researchers believe that this may trigger thinning of the layer at the back of the eye.

Lutein, which protects the eye against strong light, is therefore critical for those who spend a lot of time in front of computers.  NeoLife's experts recommend supplementing with Carotenoid Complex which is a safe and potent source of carotenoid lutein.

Carotenoid Complex is formulated so each capsule matches the carotenoid profile of an optimal serving of the carotenoid-rich foods listed above. 

Raw materials were carefully selected to contribute 15 powerful representatives of all the members of the carotenoid family:

  • Alpha-carotene
  • Beta-carotene
  • Cis-beta-carotene
  • Gamma-carotene
  • Zeta-carotene
  • Lycopene
  • Cis-lycopene
  • Lutein
  • Zeaxanthin
  • Alpha-cryptoxanthin
  • Beta-cryptoxanthin
  • Violaxanthin
  • Canthaxanthin
  • Capsanthin
  • Cryptocapsin

The above members fall into the following categories:

  • Carotenes. Carotenes, such as alpha-, beta-, cis-beta-, gamma-, and zeta-carotene, have some pro-vitamin A activity. Others, such as lycopene, do not. Most carotenes are found in yellow-orange fruits and vegetables such as apricots, mangoes, carrots, and sweet potatoes.
  • Cryptoxanthins. Both alpha- and beta-cryptoxanthin are in the xanthophyll group and are abundant in red bell peppers, peaches, oranges, tangerines, and yellow corn.
  • Lutein. This is the primary xanthophyll in spinach. It is also found in peaches, squash, kale, and broccoli.
  • Lycopene. Lycopene and cis-lycopene provide the red colour in tomatoes, guavas, and pink grapefruit. Among the carotenoids, lycopene is the most efficient quencher of singlet oxygen free radicals.
  • Xanthophylls. The xanthophylls include oxygenated carotenoids like lutein, cryptoxanthin, alpha- and beta- cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, violaxanthin, canthaxanthin, capsanthin, and cryptocapsin. High levels of xanthophylls are found in leafy green vegetables, including spinach, kale, Swiss chard, and collard greens.
