Replenishes nutrients eyes need to filter blue light
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.
Blue light comes to us naturally in the form of sunlight. But that same
wavelength is also produced by many digital device screens, such as those
found on computers, smartphones and tablets.1
The health effects of blue light
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 all the way at the back. Macular pigment is
full of lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that help the eye absorb blue
light. So we’ve created a delicious, berry-flavored gummy that delivers
lutein and zeaxanthin to support eye health.2,3
More About Lutemax 2020®
The main ingredient in Gummy Science™ Digital Eye Support is clinically
studied Lutemax 2020®. This patented marigold extract provides three
macular carotenoids, including lutein and both zeaxanthin isomers at the
same 5:1 ratio found in nature.
Lutein & zeaxanthin
These compounds are just two of more than 600 carotenoids found in nature.
But lutein and zeaxanthin are called macular carotenoids for a reason:
isomers of these compounds are the predominate carotenoids found in your
eyes. Specifically, these compounds are located within the protective dot
of pigment called the macula.
Macular Pigment Ocular Density (MPOD)
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
Clinically studied vision health support
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. But how bright is too bright can
actually vary. Over a 12-month period, Lutemax 2020® improved the tolerable
threshold of intensity 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
More about Blue Light
Excessive exposure to blue light, especially late in the day (as can occur
while viewing digital displays before bed) can disrupt our circadian
rhythms, and the delicate structures in our eyes cannot block blue light
efficiently without sufficient macular pigment density.
Since many of us use our digital devices as many as 11 hours a day, it is
imperative that we give our eyes the nutritional support they need to
filter out the blue light.
Delicious Support for Your Eyes
Gummy Science™ Digital Eye Support gummies have a delicious berry flavor
with no sugar. Two gummies a day help protect eyes from oxidative stress
and the blue light that our digital world throws at us. At home or at work,
keep a bottle of Gummy Science™ Digital Eye nearby.
