For Eye (& Brain) Health: Lutein or Zeaxanthin?

Safeguard Your Eyes Now So You Can SEE & SEE WELL, Right Into Your Later Years
"Both (of these carotenoids, Lutein and Zeaxanthin) are known as powerful antioxidants important for eye and brain health. Dr. Jim Stringham discusses both as well as which is more prevalent when it comes to both the eye and brain."
"These carotenoids need to be taken together." In what ratio then in terms of dosage, for optimal eye and brain health?
"In terms of function they do the same thing but the eye prefers lutein, 2 to 1. "
"The brain, however, to the exclusion of all other carotenoids prefers lutein. The brain is picky. It doesn't let just anything in. But it's been shown in crucial areas, like the hippocampus, which is the gateway to forming memories, lutein is the one, 50 to 1 above the other."

Product Information on "Eye Support" by Dr. Mercola: "This is formulated with some of the most powerful ingredients available for supporting your eye health - lutein, zeaxanthin, astaxanthin, bilberry, and black currant.

Lutein, a naturally occurring carotenoid, is used by your body as an antioxidant and by your eyes for blue light absorption. It protects cells from oxidative damage by fighting free radicals.

Zeaxanthin is the strongest antioxidant carotenoid found in your retina. Once transported to your eye, zeaxanthin relocates to your lens and your macula tissues, etc. to support their daily tasks.

Naturally occurring astaxanthin (often lacking in the average diet) also offers powerful antioxidant protection for your eyes.

Eye Support also  includes 50 mg of anthocyanins from high quality black currant.

The combination of lutein, zeaxanthin, bilberry, black currant and astaxanthin means that Eye Support includes the best and most important ingredients known for eye health today."
