5.Can people with eyes problem take it?
ANS:Yes.For people with eye illness as well as those with a physician diagnosed medical condition should consult with physicians. The product is a nutritious supplement with help to regulate body function.
6.How long should I take for a better result ？
ANS: Healthy supplement is to provide nutrients for your body. The dietary supplement, however, is not used as medicine to cure symptoms. According to research, it usually takes about 2~6 months of time for better and consistent result when using Lutein. We suggested you to include eggs, corns, spinach and other green leafy vegetables and cook them with oil as such vegetables also rich in Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
7.Why need to take Zeaxanthin when we already taking Lutein supplement?
Lutein and zeaxanthin are the main dietary carotenoids source. Our body cannot synthesis such nutrients but derived from diet. Carotenoids are commonly found in natural fruits and vegetables, such as kale, spinach, broccoli, corn, lettuce, egg yolk and others. We should be aware of those two nutrients as they are important nutrients that are nutrients in retina and help to protect the macula from blue light exposures. The nutrients also help to improve visual acuity and remove harmful free radicals.
8.What is Lutein?
Lutein is a carotenoid. It is found in natural dark green vegetables (such as sweet potato leaves, mustard greens, broccoli, and cabbage), orange fruits and pumpkins, etc. Our lutein is extracted from marigolds. Lutein is an key element of protect good eye vision.
9.How much Lutein we need?
The recommended dosage of lutein is 6mg. According to TFDA, lutein is limited to be less than 30mg per day in the form of capsules and tablets. Excessive intake is not recommended.
10. Why there are esterified and free form of lutein in the formulation?
Lutein is extracted from marigold flowers. There are two form of lutein, free and esterified. The differences between the two are as following: free form of lutein is derived by using hydrolysis technology that have remove the fatty acids from structure. The free form of lutein has better absorption than esterified lutein, however, not stable and poor heat tolerance. The esterified lutein has fatty acid attach on it, therefore larger molecular weight and poorer absorption than free form of lutein. Taking the advantages of those two form of lutein, we put them both in our formation.
11.β-carotene and lutein will compete with each other for absorption. Does the content of β-carotene and lutein in the product affectingtow nutrients absorption?
ANS: According to the literature:
1. The content of lutein in the retina is not affected by the supplementation of β-carotene
2. The experiment has conducted in a very high supplement of β-carotene to cause an impact
3. With normal food intake, the absorption rate of lutein is better than β-carotene
4. Althoughβ-carotene and lutein have similar chemical structure, they compete absorption in human GI tract only when the ingested dosage is extremely high. In our product, we formulated β-carotene in a right amount, therefore do not affect the absorption of lutein.
