Health Benefits at a Glance:
During a day we are exposed to blue light wavelengths produced by smartphones, computer screens and other digital devices up to 11 hours.
The ability to filter the light is essential to maintain healthy vision.
The eye’s cornea and lens are unable to filter out blue light before it enters the eye.
The only part of the eye that can block blue light is the macula, located in the retina.
Macular pigment is full of lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that help the eye absorb blue light. To help protect the eye and maintain vision health, we’ve created this unique product with a patented blend of lutein and zeaxanthin.
Why it Works:
What we see as light is only the visible portion of a broad spectrum of electromagnetic radiation wavelengths. We perceive different wavelengths within that spectrum as different colors. Wavelengths in the range of about 400–500 nanometers, which we perceive as the color blue, can influence mood, circadian rhythms, attention, and more.
Excessive exposure to blue light, especially late in the day can disrupt our circadian rhythms, and the delicate structures in our eyes cannot block blue light efficiently without sufficient macular pigment density, as the macular pigment filters blue light before it hits the photoreceptors in the retina.
This formula delivers the macular carotenoids lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin.
These nutrients help revitalize the density of the macular pigment, hence helps maintain vision health.
The Science Behind the Product:
These compounds are two of more than 600 carotenoids found in nature. Lutein and zeaxanthin carry pigmentation, which helps absorb blue light, and are called macular carotenoids. Isomers of these compounds are the predominant carotenoids found in your eyes, specifically located within the macula, the so-called protective dot of pigment.
The more lutein and zeaxanthin your macular pigment has, the better it can do its job: acting as primary filter against blue light. These compounds also support visual health and acuity by protecting delicate eye tissues from oxidative stress.3-5
The main ingredient in Gummy Science™ Digital Eye Support is clinically studied Lutemax 2020®. The patented marigold extract provides three macular carotenoids, including lutein and both zeaxanthin isomers at the same 5:1 ratio found in nature.
In a double-blind, placebo-controlled 12-week clinical study, Lutemax 2020® was given to young, healthy adults once a day. The researchers measured several variables, including macular pigment density, serum carotenoid levels, and response to glare and visual stress caused by excessive light. The results were promising.6
We’ve all experienced the effects of light glare, where exposure to bright light makes it difficult to see clearly. Over a 12-month period, Lutemax 2020® improved the tolerable threshold of intens ity where a subject’s eyesight was affected by glare.6
Sometimes, after being exposed to a bright light, it takes time for the eyes to adjust and start re-transmitting visual cues to the brain from the world around you. This whiteout period where we cannot see clearly is called photostress and it is completely normal. But as with light glare, photostress recovery time can vary. Lutemax 2020® improved scores of photostress recovery times.6
