Functions

Vision health

Lutein is essential for vision health. It does not directly function in the process of sight. Rather, it is a powerful antioxidant that protects the macula by absorbing damaging blue, violet and ultra violet light. It accumulates in the retina including at the macula, the oval-shaped pigmented area near the center of the retina, which is responsible for detail vision.

Eye disease

Lutein is also somewhat helpful in preventing and managing cataracts, central serous chorioretinopathy,and uveitis.

Macular degeneration

Abundant research has brought use of these phytonutrients into the mainstream of vision care. The landmark studies which came to the attention of many conventional eye doctors were the AREDS studies. There were two studies and an update, all tied to the Age-Related Eye Disease Study.

Immune response

Lutein is more than merely a filter for the sun's UV radiation. 2012 research has shown that it modulates immune responses as well as inflammation, including inflammation in the eye such as that is manifested in uveitis, laser-induced choroidal neovascularization, retinal ischemia and diabetic retinopathy.

Biomarker Role

In 2016 researchers identified lutein as one of the carotenoids that makes an excellent biomarker in observing women's dietary intake. In other words, the levels of lutein in the blood indicate the degree to which nutrients are actually being absorbed by the body and being used by cell tissue.

Atherosclerosis

Lutein may also be helpful in fighting atherosclerosis by improving circulation. Researchers found that lutein levels in the blood are tied to artery wall thickness, and may help to reduce accumulation of plaque by preventing oxidation of fats in the bloodstream.
