Lutein is a carotene found in green leafy vegetables, egg yolks, animal fats and is used by organisms as an antioxidant. But recent studies are showing that the xanthophyll can also protect against the formation of plaque in the arteries and macular degeneration.

A recent news report by Byron Richards of CCN detailed a study in which Lutein supplements were given to animals over a 12-week period and despite and otherwise poor diet, the Lutein protected against the formation of plaque in the arteries.

This study shows again why Lutein is an important carotene and needs to be a part of everyone’s daily intact.

According to Nutritionalist Robert Redfern, Lutein should be taken as a supplement, especially as we age. As people get older, the body has a more difficult time absorbing nutrients and that leads to many chronic illnesses.

MaxiFocus, a supplement by Good Health Naturally, is a sublingual spray that is easily absorbed and delivers 23 nutrients for eye, brain and body health. Within a matter of a few weeks, those who take MaxiFocus have reported a reverse of lost eye sight.

Age-related macular degeneration, a condition that erodes vision, is believed to be the result of these nutritional deficiencies and therefore can be prevented.

According to the CCN report, mammals with the longest lifespan have the highest concentrations of carotenes in their blood.

However, fruits and vegetables grown today are loosing their nutritional punch due to poor soil conditions and that is why supplements are so important.

MaxiFocus has the highest amount of nutrients for the lowest cost compared to other supplements on the market and the delivery system _ a spray_ makes it very easy for the body to absorb.

According to the CCN piece, the body is either loosing Lutein or gaining it. If your body’s Lutein is declining, then you need to supplement and do so daily.

Lutein is found to help reverse the effects of aging in many systems of our bodies and also supports brain health.
