Lutein+: More than Just an Eye Supplement

Lutein+: More than Just an Eye Supplement

On average how much time do you think the average person spends in front of a screen (phone, computer, TV, etc.)? Go ahead, take a guess.

If you were in the ballpark of 7 hours a day, you’d be correct. Yes, on average, people spend nearly, if not over, 7 hours a day looking at screens. We live in the digital age, and our digital devices have become a huge part of our daily lives. That’s why we see and will most likely continue to see an increase in screen time as the years pass.

As with anything, there are pros and cons to this. For the sake of the length of this blog, we’re going to spare you that lecture. However, there is one important con that we need to mention – the excessive exposure to blue light.

You’ve most likely heard the term “blue light” before as there has been some buzz around it for quite some time (blue light glasses for example), so let me briefly explain. Blue light is quite literally EVERYWHERE. It’s part of visible light (the light that allows us to perceive colors and shapes in our surroundings) and is completely unavoidable. We are all exposed to it from sunlight and artificial light (ie: LED lights) to our devices. Our eyes don’t effectively block blue light; therefore, almost all visible blue light passes through the front of our eyes and reaches the retina. Excessive exposure to blue light, especially long term, can cause short and long term issues such as:

  • Headaches
  • Dry Eyes
  • Blurred Vision
  • Eye Fatigue + Strain
  • Retinal Damage
  • Impaired Glare Recovery
  • Reduced Visual Performance
  • Age-related Eye Conditions (such as AMD – age-related macular degeneration)

While limiting your screen time is a great way to reduce your exposure to blue light, and those potential issues, it’s highly recommended to pair that practice with lutein + zeaxanthin to protect your eyes.

Lutein is an antioxidant found in the brain, skin, and back of the eye that functions within our skin and eyes to absorb blue light. Zeaxanthin is also an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals and reduce oxidative stress in the eye tissues. Together, they work to naturally protect the brain, skin, and eyes by absorbing blue light! 

But here’s the issue, well actually issues. First and foremost, your body doesn’t produce lutein or zeaxanthin. They have to be consumed through your diet or supplements. Secondly, it’s suggested that one needs to consume 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin daily via their diet, which can be found in orange, yellow, and leafy green vegetables and fruits. How many of us actually consume an ample amount of those on a daily basis to meet those dietary needs? 

Very few of us do. If you are one of the few, the other issue lies in the fact that in order for lutein to be absorbed by the body it MUST be ingested jointly with a fat (butter, eggs, vegetable fat, etc.). If not, the lutein you consumed won’t be bioavailable (easily digested or utilized) by the body. 

With all that being said, if our bodies can’t produce them and we don’t consume them through our diet, then they must be ingested through supplementation. This is where we come in, well technically, where Lutein+ comes in! 

What is Lutein+:

Lutein+ serves as a natural defense against the harmful effects of blue light! It’s formulated with FloraGLO® Lutein and Zeaxanthin to provide comprehensive protection for your eyes, from the front to the back. 

FloraGLO® Lutein is the most studied lutein on the market with over 100 human clinical trial publications and a patent showing how lutein filters blue light. It’s a natural ingredient that provides the same free-form of lutein that can be found in the foods we mentioned earlier (green leafy vegetables, orange/yellow fruits and vegetables, and eggs), making it more easily absorbed by the body.

When paired with zeaxathin, FloraGLO® Lutein forms a dynamic duo that fortifies your eyes, providing the support they need from blue light, while also promoting long-term visual wellness. 

Eye Benefits of Lutein+:

Speaking of visual wellness, when it comes to eye health, Lutein+ can help by:

  • Combating eye fatigue + strain
  • Protecting the eyes from blue light
  • Improving visual performance
  • Enhancing contrast vision in healthy eyes

These benefits can be seen at every stage of life from prenatal development to developing infants and children, and young adults to seniors! 

Additional Benefits of Lutein+:

But get this, Lutein+ goes beyond just your vision health! It can also benefit your skin and brain as well.

As far as benefits for your brain goes, earlier we mentioned that lutein is an antioxidant. Antioxidants are known for protecting the body from damage caused by free radicals that occur from stress, unhealthy diets, pollution, smoking, drinking, and more. Lutein, specifically, works to decrease this oxidative stress in certain brain regions. It can also help with cognitive flexibility, attention, visual memory, as well as visual reaction time. FloraGLO® Lutein has 10 publications from human intervention studies showing benefits for brain health.

Lutein’s ability to combat oxidative stress also impacts the health of your skin! Oxidative stress can increase skin aging, dryness, roughness, and sagging. It also contributes to skin diseases, such as skin cancer. By fighting off the damages of oxidative stress as well as absorbing blue light, lutein can improve skin hydration, elasticity, and appearance. FloraGLO® Lutein’s use in nutrition supplements is backed by three publications showing benefits for skin health.


If you made this far, we know you’re serious about your eye health! You can trust that with Lutein+ your eyes will get the support they need to thrive in today's digital world.
