Contributing to normal, age related vision loss, blue LED light is harmful not only to your eye’s retina but also to your natural body rhythms. It inhibits the production of melatonin, your sleep hormone, and can cause occasional headaches and vision fatigue.
Three carotenoids – lutein, meso-zeaxanthin and RR-zeaxanthin – are highly concentrated in your eye’s macula, which is responsible for your central vision and visual acuity. These carotenoids make up three-fourths of the carotenoids in your brain, specifically the areas responsible for cognitive function and data-processing.
With today’s increased demands on your eyes and brain, lutein and zeaxanthin have truly become essential “lifestyle” nutrients, especially as good dietary sources are limited.
