Lutein benefits three areas: eye and skin health, and brain function
Lutein is a vitamin that our eyes need in order to see properly. Have you ever felt like you just can’t keep your eyes open after you’ve been staring at your computer screen for awhile? That might be because your screen’s blue light is bothering your eyes making them feel scratchy or tired. This is something lutein can help with.
We’re born with lutein in our bodies. But, we can’t produce it. The only way to replenish lutein is through our diet. But the types of food you have to eat are quite specific, and quantities are very high (think three cups of raw spinach every day). So, depending on your diet, you may not be getting as much lutein as your body needs.
May protect you from cataracts and vision loss as you age
We are surrounded by screens in our daily life. Computer screens at work, TV screens at home, and our phone screens all give off blue light. Over time, this light can damage our eyes. One of the body’s main defenses against blue light is lutein. In our eyes, lutein is deposited in the back of our eye which is an important area for our sight. Maintaining lutein levels through supplements is shown to help your eyes stay healthy longer, and may protect you from common problems like cataracts and vision loss as you age.
Shown to improve skin hydration and elasticity
Your skin is your first line of defense against disease and plays a major role in your immunity. It’s the body’s largest organ and protects us from the germs and bacteria we encounter every day. But our skin can be damaged by blue light. So to help repair it, FloraGLO® Lutein treats the skin from within. It may help your skin stay better hydrated and improve its elasticity, which can help your skin maintain a healthy youthful look.
Shown to play a role in memory, reaction speed, and decision making
Early tests indicate FloraGLO® Lutein is shown to benefit memory recall and reaction speed, helping the body’s nervous system process information rapidly to make decisions faster. And in older, healthy adults, the lutein we use has been shown to support the mental ability to multitask and maintain focus.
- Improves visual memory
- Supports healthy brain function
- Reaction speed may improve
FloraGLO® Lutein is a specialized lutein source that’s easy for your body to absorb
Lutein is a plant extract mostly used for its perceived health benefits for healthy eyes and skin. New research shows there could also be a connection between healthy brain function and lutein, especially as you get older.
FloraGLO® Lutein is a specialized lutein source that’s easy for your body to absorb. It gives you a daily dose of this important antioxidant to replenish lutein levels in your eyes, skin, and brain.
Is it safe?
FloraGLO® Lutein used in Future Proof is backed by two decades of research. Very few side effects are associated with taking lutein supplements.
Disclaimer: It’s always a good idea to talk to your doctor before you take any type of supplement. And if you experience any negative side effects when you are taking one, contact a healthcare expert immediately.
How big is the dose?
There is no specific, recommended amount of lutein for adults to consume each day. A typical U.S. diet may contain 1-3 mg/day of lutein. In studies, consuming about 6 mg/day of lutein has shown possible benefits related to eye health (specifically a decreased risk of age-related macular degeneration).
In our supplement we include a 10 mg dosage of lutein. In order to get a similar amount from common foods, you would need to consume 3-4 cups of kale, 3-4 cups of spinach, or 16 egg yolks.
