There are two carotenoids that have the ability to penetrate ocular tissue - lutein and zeaxanthin from lutein formed in the retina. These carotenoids are responsible for visual acuity, the lack of them can lead to irreversible deterioration of visual function.
The properties of lutein Lutein complex due to the ability of the structure to protect the eyes from the aggressive part of the light spectrum, neutralizing its harmful effects. Also, lutein prevents the action of free radicals and prevents the cataract tissue destruction.
Vitamin C is involved in the restoration of visual pigments, it plays an important role in many biochemical processes, and normalizes blood capillaries. Vitami A is actively ESTATE in the synthesis of essential substances to the eye, improves color perception, rejuvenation of cell populations. Vitamin E is an important component of many processes of tissue metabolism and prevents increased fragility and permeability of capillaries, many of which are in the eyes.
It should be noted that in a preparation Lutein complex contains vitamin E derived from natural raw materials of vegetable origin, which is significantly more active in comparison with its synthetic analogs.
Taurine is an amino acid that takes part in the program photosignals stimulating metabolic and regenerative processes in the eye tissues. Zinc helps maintain the levels of vitamin A, to synthesize protein molecules. Copper deficiency adversely affects the strength of the blood vessels and can lead to hemorrhage. Selenium causes the drug's ability to protect the complex Lutein eye tissue from the harmful effects of free radicals.
Lutein complex responses suggest an effective drug that prolongs the natural youthful eye due to its powerful antioxidant effect, which manifests itself in the form of sensory organ protection from aggressive forms of active oxygen.
Children older than 7 years are advised to take Lutein complex for children in which the composition and quantity of active ingredients the most adapted to the needs of the visual system in this age group.
