What are the functions of lutein?


Vision protection
Lutein is a kind of fat-soluble vitamin. Its absorption spectrum contains near blue-violet light, which can help the retina of the eye resist ultraviolet rays. For the eyes, lutein is an important antioxidant. Supplementing a large amount of lutein to the human body helps maintain the durability of vision, increase the visual response time, and reduce visual damage. For myopia, supplementation of lutein can delay the increase in myopia.

Lutein is widely used in the processing of condiments, tobacco, cakes, candies and various feeds. In China, lutein has been widely used as a colorant.

Anti-oxidize effect
Oxygen free radicals in the human body are an important cause of many age-related diseases. Lutein has a strong antioxidant capacity, which can inhibit the activity of oxygen free radicals and prevent the damage of oxygen free radicals to normal cells.

Anticancer effect
Lutein has a unique biological effect in inhibiting tumor growth, and its mechanism mainly includes antioxidant activity, inhibition of tumor angiogenesis and cell proliferation.

Delay the effect of early arteriosclerosis
The latest research findings have found that lutein can slow down the development of early arteriosclerosis. Through animal experiments, it was found that mixing lutein and mouse feed together, and feeding them, the incidence of arterial thrombosis was lower than that of those without feed containing lutein.

Preventing diabetes
Lutein can be used as an effective adjuvant to strengthen the function of insulin to lower blood sugar. Therefore, eating foods such as fruits and vegetables rich in lutein can reduce the risk of diabetes.
