Lutein & Zeaxanthin are natural carotenoids found in dark green leafy vegetables at high level. Carotenoids give fruits and vegetables yellow to red colors. Lutein & Zeaxanthin are also found in the eye, especially, in the macula lutea. Lutein & Zeaxanthin forms a protective layer that absorbs harmful lights such as blue light emitted from phone screens, computers, LED lights and sunlight. With the increase of digital screen use, daily supplementation of Lutein & Zeaxanthin is essential for eye and vision health.
Astaxanthin is another natural carotenoid in red color and is highly concentrated in algae. Sea foods such as salmon, lobster, red trout and even flamingos turn to red-orange color in various degree when they are fed on algae. Scientists believe Astaxanthin gives salmon the endurance to swim miles and jumps over several-foot rapids. Astaxanthin is also found in the front of eye, where it supports the endurance of ciliary muscle that controls the eye to focus on objects that are at a distance or are nearby. Astaxanthin is found to relieve eye fatigue and improve the tear break time in clinical studies.*
DHA is an essential Omega 3 fatty acid that body cannot make and must obtain from foods. 90% of fatty acids found in brain and eye is DHA for providing optimal mental performance (neuronal functioning) and visual acuity. DHA is known for cognitive and visual development in infants, however, dietary DHA is needed to replenish and maintain optimal DHA levels for functioning throughout the lifespan. It has been discovered that daily supplementation of DHA helps improve tear quality and support dry eyes.*
