Nutritional Knowledge: Lutein, also known as plant lutein, is a type of carotenoid and is the main pigment in the human retinal area, playing a crucial role in protecting the eyes. It is mainly concentrated in the macular region, the most sensitive area of vision in our eyes, and acts as a “guardian” for the macula.
Research has found that lutein itself has lower light and heat stability, as well as a narrower tolerance range for pH in the human body compared to lutein ester. Due to these factors, lutein has lower bioavailability during storage and consumption. Lutein ester, on the other hand, is a stable form of carotenoid fatty acid ester, which is relatively stable and can be broken down into free lutein after absorption by the body for utilization.
What are the Functions of Lutein (Lutein)?
- Antioxidant and Blue Light Filtration: UV and blue light from sunlight entering the eyes generate a large number of free radicals, which can damage the optic nerve. Lutein can inhibit the formation of free radicals, reducing the damage of UV and blue light to the eyes. It can also filter blue light, which can penetrate the eyeball and damage the retina and macula, especially the vulnerable outer fatty layer of the macula. Lutein can form a protective film, filter out blue light, prevent harmful solar radiation to the eyes, and relieve symptoms like eye fatigue, dryness, blurriness, and light sensitivity.
- Promotes Rhodopsin Regeneration: Rhodopsin is one of the three photosensitive pigments contained in cone cells of the human eye, essential for maintaining visual acuity. Lutein promotes the regeneration of rhodopsin in the retina, making vision clearer.
- Prevention of Eye Diseases: Lutein is an excellent antioxidant that can eliminate tissue damage caused by free radicals. There is a close relationship between macular degeneration and free radicals. The abundant lutein in the macula can eliminate damage from free radicals to the macula and prevent and control the occurrence and development of macular degeneration. Lutein also has preventive effects on age-related macular degeneration, retinal pigment degeneration, cataracts, myopia, and eye fatigue.
- Improves Vision: Lutein is a strong antioxidant that can help filter blue light, reduce chromatic aberration, and enhance visual accuracy.
- Prevention of Glaucoma: Lutein can reduce the oxidation intensity of eye globulin, and the higher the intake, the lower the incidence of glaucoma.
- Delaying Cataract Formation: Lutein is the only carotenoid present in the crystalline lens, which can enhance the antioxidant capacity of the lens, resist damage from sunlight and free radicals, and delay or prevent the formation of cataracts.
- Preventing Consequences of High Myopia: High myopia can lead to retinal detachment, accumulation of fluid, floaters, and even permanent blindness. Adequate lutein supplementation provides the eyes with sufficient nutrition, reducing the occurrence of these conditions.
- Reducing Macular Degeneration and Pathological Changes: Macular degeneration is a leading cause of blindness in the elderly. Experiments have shown that lutein can help improve vision in patients with age-related macular degeneration.
Blueberries, rich in nutrients and sweet-tart in taste, are deeply favored by people. They are a good source of anthocyanins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and more.
Functions of Anthocyanins:
- Antioxidation: Anthocyanins have strong antioxidant properties and can inhibit enzymes that damage eye cells, clear free radicals that harm ocular blood vessels, prevent various eye diseases, and avoid macular degeneration and retinal pigment degeneration. They also have a certain therapeutic effect on glaucoma, cataracts, and other eye diseases.
- Promote Rhodopsin Regeneration: Rhodopsin is a protein complex composed of retinal and opsin. Anthocyanins can promote the regeneration of rhodopsin in retinal cells, enhance dark adaptation, improve night vision, and enhance low-light adaptation, preventing myopia and enhancing vision.
- Regulation of Retinal Blood Microcirculation: By improving blood circulation in the eyes, accelerating substance metabolism and exchange, enhancing protection of capillaries, providing abundant nutrients, preventing eye fatigue, protecting vision, and effectively relieving myopia, amblyopia, and pseudo-myopia.
Vitamin C and Vitamin E: Vitamin C is one of the components of the crystalline lens. It can prevent oxidative damage to lens epithelial cells, inhibit apoptosis of lens epithelial cells, and delay cell aging. Vitamin E has good nourishing effects on the eyeball itself and the eye muscles.
Cranberries have a significant protective effect on human eyes, mainly due to their vitamin A content. Vitamin A is a basic nutrient for the eyes and plays an important role in maintaining eye health. In addition, cranberries are also a good source of many antioxidants, such as vitamin C and other antioxidant compounds (such as polyphenols and phytonutrients). These antioxidants can protect the eyes from oxidative damage caused by free radicals, improve retinal function, promote rhodopsin synthesis, maintain healthy eyes, stabilize vision, and greatly reduce the incidence of myopia and night blindness, as well as the risks of age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye diseases.
