The “Happy” Vitamin Too Few are Taking

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are well known for promoting eye health. Lutein and Zeaxanthin are two carotenoids that work together to protect the eye from oxidative stress, which can cause major eye diseases and blindness, such as Age Related Macular Degeneration. Did you know that Lutein and Zeaxanthin now have even more to offer to your health?

A new study released in Nutritional Neuroscience* is now reporting that Lutein and Zeaxanthin is linked to lower levels of psychological stress. The study was observed over the course of 12 months with 59 participants.

According to the study, supplementation with either Lutein or Zeaxanthin for a minimum of 6 months produced significant improvements in measures of psychological stress, serum cortisol, and measures of emotional and physical health compared to placebo.

Lutein and Zeaxanthin are commonly found in leafy green vegetables, like spinach and kale. The average person does not eat enough leafy greens on a daily basis, so supplementing with Lutein and Zeaxanthin may help some individuals who are not confident with their daily intake.

Viteyes Essentials is a high quality formulation of Lutein and Zeaxanthin, containing a potent dose of Lutein and Zeaxanthin for optimum eye health. Ask your doctor if supplementing with Lutein and Zeaxanthin is right for you. The benefits for both eye health and mood enhancement may be worth it.
