MYTH BUSTER: Lutein Benefits Your Eyes Only

The carotenoid lutein, commonly referred to as the "eye vitamin", is making its scene beyond eye health. While Lutein is proven to reduce risks of age-related macular degeneration and prolong the onset of cataracts, researchers believe we have only scratched the surface of Lutein's health-promoting benefits. Nearly 100 peer-reviewed published papers involving 400,000 individuals confirmed that higher lutein consumption can reduce the risks of coronary heart disease, stroke and metabolic syndrome. Even more recently, Lutein has increasingly been linked to cognitive benefits and brain health. This may sound curious, but because the eyes and brain are so tightly connected it actually makes complete sense. In fact, Lutein has now been found to not only exist in the retina, but in the actual brain as well!

What is Lutein?

Lutein is a powerful plant-based pigment [also known as a carotenoid, i.e., science's fancy word for nutrient] that can be found in leafy greens like spinach, kale, broccoli, and peppers. Even though Lutein is a small plant-based pigment, it has major antioxidant benefits. It neutralizes dangerous free radicals and reduces oxidative stress on both the eyes and the brain.  It's because of this that Lutein has now been linked to improvements in brain health, cognitive function, memory and even mood!

The Memory Health formula was developed and tested in clinical trials on both diseased and healthy brains. The results of these trials showed improvement in cognition, memory, mood, and overall brain health across both segments of healthy and diseased brains.
