OcuSave contains essential antioxidiants plus 50mg of lutein and 10mg of zeaxanthin to help promote healthy eye vision.

Lutein and zeaxanthin are compounds called xanthophylls, which are yellow pigments that occur naturally in many green leafy plants and colorful fruits and vegetables. Found in high concentrations in the macula of the human eye, lutein and zeaxanthin are two very important nutrients that may help to reduce the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts.

Lutein and zeaxanthin have important antioxidant functions in the body. It is believed that lutein and zeaxanthin in the macula block blue light (high-energy light rays) from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to macular degeneration (AMD).

A number of studies have found that lutein and zeaxanthin either help prevent AMD or may slow progression of the disease.  The six-year study, performed by National Eye Institute, found that lutein and zeaxanthin help protect against blindness (macular degeneration), which affect 1.2 million Americans, mostly after age sixty-five. Studies also found that eyes with greater levels of macular pigments were less likely to have or develop macular degeneration.
