NANOBOOST : Lutein & Zeaxanthin

High levels of Lutein and Zeaxanthin (L/Z) are found in the eyes, brain and skin. Both L/Z carotenoids accumulate in the eye, brain, and skin. With age and bad eating habits, levels of (L/Z) decline, leaving the eyes, brain, and skin more susceptible to damage. The reason that L/Z helps protect the eyes is because they absorb light. In particular, they absorb light on the violet to blue end of the spectrum. With digital technology devices i.e. phone, laptops, energy-efficient indoor lighting, and television screens we see an increase in exposure to blue light, thus we are seeing an increase in problems related to blue light exposure. Blue light damages the retina through photo-oxidation.

Why we choose Nano supplementation & what makes Nano Technology Unique
Most powder or tablet supplements have poor absorption in their free form in the gastrointestinal tract. 

We have invested heavily in the latest Nano supplement technology. We are nano sizing the supplement particles to increase the absorption through the circulatory system. By doing this we increase the absorbable surface area, thus making the one act like a million. Nano bypasses the full digestion process and delivers its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties to our bodies with maximum bioavailability.

It is the science behind our Nano that makes it unique. At the core of the Nano platform, the technology involves manipulating the particle size of various compounds to the nano scale – somewhere between the width of a DNA strand and an atom. By reducing to sub-micron nano particle sizes, its ability to pass through tissues and cells is dramatically improved and the exposed area of the compound is increased,
thus, improving its overall activity and bioavailability.

Stated by Science Direct: Nanoemulsions (NE) are advantageous nanosized delivery agents for ophthalmic medications because of their ability to penetrate into the ocular structure, as well as their sustained effects. The lutein loading NEs demonstrated a significant increase in lutein release and sustained release. In contrast, lutein prepared with oil and starch had limited drug release profiles under 5%.

Eye Health As noted, one of the primary mechanisms by which L/Z helps protect the eyes is by the absorption of blue light. Levels of L/Z in the retina have been shown to be photo-protective of the retina and correlated to a reduced risk of advanced age related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is the leading cause of vision loss and cataracts in aged population 60 y and older. This includes dry eyes, eye strain, and eye fatigue. Long term eye fatigue can contribute to a gradual loss of visual function. Dietary supplementation of L/Z has been shown to increase their levels not only in the serum but also in the macula. One reason that L/Z helps protect the eyes is because both supplements absorb blue light.

MP (Macular Pigment) is a yellow pigmented spot that is found in the center of the retina known as the macula. Made up of two different carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, the MP plays a critical role in protecting the macula from harmful blue light and in helping to maintain the function of the macula.

Macular Pigment Optical Density (MPOD) is a measure of the density of the macular pigment. The density varies among individuals and may change with time. Since high MPOD is associated with healthy eyes, it's an important measure of vision health. Conversely, Low MPOD is a leading risk factor in AgeRelated Macular Degeneration (AMD). Supplementation with lutein and/or zeaxanthin increases MPOD, and supplemental lutein enhances retinal sensitivity, in patients with early AMD.

Lutein is known to improve or even prevent age-related macular disease which is the leading cause of blindness and vision impairment

Brain Health Several studies have established that central nervous system (CNS) levels of L/Z are related to brain function. Levels of L/Z have been shown to be correlated with white matter integrity in several regions of the brain, including those that are vulnerable to cognitive decline. Z inhibits amyloid beta aggregation, and, combined with L, reduces Alzheimer Disease mortality. Supplementation with L/Z showed improved cognitive function in community-dwelling, older, men and women.

Skin Health L/Z are also important for the health of the skin. Here, they may help protect against the damaging effects of another portion of the electromagnetic spectrum: ultraviolet (UV) light. Studies have shown that supplementation of L/Z reduces inflammation and edema. More interesting regarding L/Z and skin health is the protection they provide against the damaging effects of blue light as well. The magnitude of blue light damage to skin is less than what UV rays impart, but because of the regular exposure we have to blue light, and the lack of protection that sunscreen provides, blue light exposure not only causes its own damage, it renders us more susceptible to damage from the intense UV-A and UV-B rays as well. Damage from each of these forms of light is cumulative—which is why we see more signs of skin aging and skin cancer on light-exposed regions of our skin with increasing age.

How much L/Z do we need? There is not a dietary guideline for L/Z intake, however research suggests that one should consume 6 mg/day to prevent age-related macular degeneration. However, dietary studies have shown that U.S. adults only consume 1 to 2 mg/day. L/Z are the ONLY nutrients deposited specifically into the eyes to help filter harmful blue light. The human body doesn't naturally produce L/Z so it's important to get these nutrients through supplements and foods.
