protect you eyes!!

Posted by iHerb Customer on August 19 2010 | Verified Purchase

I am an eye doctor. Ophthalmologic research now proves the necessity of lutein and zeaxanthin in our daily diet. It protects us from macular degeneration, improves night vision, decreases glare, and reduces cataract onset by 38%! These findings are from the AREDS ll study. Lutein and zeaxanthin are now standard of care treatment in ophthalmology! I personally have taken this product for several years. On Macular Pigment Optical Density testing, I score 45% above the minimum needed to protect the macula from degeneration!

Thanks for your feedback!

Eye health!!!

Lutein is a carotenoid, not a vitamin. Humans consume 1 to 3 mg lutein per day. Food sources: dark green leafy vegetables and egg yolks. Kale and spinach have high concentrations. Corn and collard greens also have this substance. Oral supplementation with lutein and zeaxanthin increase the levels of macular pigments in the retina and plasma. Helps to prevent age related macular degeneration. Improves night vision and color perception. Good for skin and other tissues. May help reduce the risk of certain types of cancer, particularly of the breast and lung, as well help prevent heart disease and stroke. Human eye cells treated with lutein and zeaxanthin showed less damage after being exposed to ultraviolet rays, the sunlight ingredient considered a major contributor to cataracts. Cataracts occur when proteins in the eye's lens begin to clump together, forming a milky cloud that obscures vision. It is thought that the more sunlight a person is exposed to in life, the greater the risk for cataracts. Suggested Use: One capsule with breakfast two or three times a week. There is a possibility that taking too high a dose could negatively alter the carotenoid balance in the retina and thus be counterproductive (if you get fuzzy vision, reduce the dose or take a few times a week, instead of daily, and it will normalize). *Age Related Macular degeneration symptom Loss of central vision is the most serious symptom. The first sign or symptom may be a need for more light during close-up work. Fine newsprint may become harder to read and street signs, particularly at night, more difficult to recognize. Gray or blank spots may mask the center of your visual field. Symptoms of macular degeneration usually develop gradually, but may sometimes progress rapidly, leading to severe vision loss in one or both eyes. There are two major types wet and dry. *Other supplements & vitamins for eye health: DHA (fish oil)

Great eye supplement

Jarrow is usually one of my favorites & I got this lutein for my husband who was diagnosed with macular degeneration & retinal issues early last Fall. Immediately he started taking lutein, bilberry, & a vision formula and within weeks noticed that the blurred central vision and diminished overall vision had started to improve, to the point that he no longer needs reading glasses all of the time.Additionally,his general distance vision has greatly improved. We can't wait to revisit his eye specialist to get the official results of how he is doing. I started taking the lutein too and notice much less eye strain when reading, on the computer, etc.

Thanks for your feedback!

I have been taking it since my lasik surgery- you literately SEE the difference. I am glad that I was taking it though all my pregnancy, and very surprised it is not widely advertised by OBGYN. Since it supports women health as well as eyes

Thanks for your feedback!

Great Product

Hi Potency formula contains more Lutein than higher priced nationally advertised "occular" type formulas. Have been on this formula for 6 years and seems to have stopped and reversed my symptoms of macular degeneration. Iherb has the best price I have found on this formula.

Thanks for your feedback!

An optometrist suggested that I start taking 20mg of Lutein a day to help maintain healthy eyes and it might help prevent Macular Degenerate Eye Disease.

Thanks for your feedback!

Super effective the first time used !!! LOVE IT!!

I was using a quality name brand eye/vision supplement which had many good ingredients. I read the reviews on here, iherb, and decided to try it. Goodness !! After stopping the former supplement the day before (due to finishing the bottle) and starting this one there was an immediate and NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE for the BETTER. I cannot recall when I had such an immediate result from a supplement. I love Jarrow products as well. It is better than the former vitamin which was supposed to do the same thing. Sometimes, Less IS More ! Thank you iherb for selling this quality item. Keep up the good work !

Thanks for your feedback!

Great product.

I have macular degeneration, & this product was suggested. While there is no cure for it, after 9 months, my vision is no worse, & that's a good thing.

Thanks for your feedback!

Jarrow Lutein as above

Posted by iHerb Customer on March 29 2009 | Verified Purchase

I was diagnosed as having dry macular degeneration quite a few years ago. I have been taking Jarrow's Lutein for some four years to supplement my use of mind power. My recent check at my eye clinic informed me that my AMD is "negligable" -- the consultant's own word.

Thanks for your feedback!

The potency is certified for this eye health support supplement

I use lutein for eye health support, and this brand's potency is certified to be all there, so I re-order over and over.
