Consumer awareness towards eye health continues to grow steadily, which is why the market for eye health related products is on the rise. The eye supplements accounted for more than 4% of the global supplement launches in 2016. Eye health becomes one of the major concerns in most developed consumer health markets. With current hectic lifestyles and diets often lacking in many crucial nutrients, health supplements provide a convenient solution to all people concerned for their eye health.
Maintaining strong vision, eliminating free radicals and protection from UV radiation are the prominent features enhancing product penetration. Consumers are increasingly more aware also of the potential eye health benefits of the carotenoids – Lutein and Zeaxanthin. These ingredients remain the most popular components of the eye health supplements market.
So what Exactly Is Lutein?
Lutein is one of two major carotenoids found as a color pigment in the human eye (macula and retina). It is thought to function as a light filter, protecting the eye tissues from sunlight damage. Lutein is naturally found in leafy green vegetables, where it also plays a protective role for the plant, protecting it from excessive sun damage. Lutein cannot be made by human body, so as we age, our body’s natural supply decreases, which is why it’s important to either ensure a steady supply of this nutrient from diet or to supplement it.
The link between Lutein and eye health was first reported in 1994 by Dr Johanna Seddon and her co-workers at Harvard University, who found a link between the intake of cartenoid-rich food and a significant reduction in age-related macular degeneration. Researchers from Illinois University claim that Lutein has enough scientific evidence that it should have its own established dietary intake an join the ranks of vitamins, minerals and macro-nutrients which are part of public nutrition policy.
In addition to important eye and vision benefits, lutein acts as an antioxidant, helping protect cells against free radicals and against atherosclerosis (buildup of fatty deposits in arteries), the disease that leads to most heart attacks.
