XanMax® for Eye Health: The Benefits and Dosage Information

Lutein is a well-known antioxidant compound known to support eye health. XanMax® is a 100% natural lutein concentrate from marigold flowers and provides optimal eye support. 

Lutein, along with another antioxidant zeaxanthin, are major components of the retina, which is responsible for clear vision. XanMax® contains both to support retina health and long-term vision.

Antioxidants for Eye Health

Lutein and zeaxanthin are two of the most abundant carotenoids found in the body, and they are concentrated mostly in the retina. Both compounds work to reduce typical oxidative stress to the epithelial cells in the eye lens. 

Lutein, in particular, has been found to act as a highly effective filter of blue light. As antioxidants, lutein, and zeaxanthin help reduce typical oxidative stress to support vision cells from the harsh effects of blue light. 

Lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin are carotenoids that cannot be converted into vitamin A. They are similar to other carotenoids in that they are both fat-soluble and the body is unable to produce them. 

It is necessary to get these powerful antioxidants from diet or supplementation. Unlike lutein and zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin is found only on the macula and is produced in the retina through the isomerization of lutein.

XanMax® provides a comprehensive dose of lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin. Although other carotenoids can also support eye health, these are the only three that directly deposit onto the macula.

The Benefits of XanMax®

XanMax® provides lutein and zeaxanthin (and meso-zeaxanthin, once it converts from lutein) to promote eye health and long-term vision. The retina is the most metabolically active tissue in the eye and the entire body, and this high metabolism is associated with typical oxidative stress. 

These carotenoid pigments have the ability to absorb blue light that comes from televisions, smartphones, computer screens, and other forms of artificial lighting. By helping to reduce occasional oxidative stress, these compounds help promote visual acuity, and promote complete vision health

Lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin within the retina are measured as macular pigment optical density (MOPD). The thickness of this pigment varies from person to person and is what provides protection for the harsh effects of blue light. A thicker macular pigment will mean better protection, and XanMax® helps promote pigment thickness.

Taking XanMax® daily can support vision cell health which helps increase visual acuity, improve contrast sensitivity, and decrease the risk of developing age-related eye symptoms like hazy, blurred, or double vision.

Additional Benefits of XanMax®

Lutein is a powerful cleansing agent that is known to help support your eyes, but as the largest component of the XanMax® supplement, it can provide additional benefits too. 

Lutein has also been found to support arterial and circulatory health to promote optimal heart function. By promoting antioxidant capacity in the body, XanMax® also helps to reduce typical oxidative stress to support the health of your skin, and protect against common environmental factors.

Taking XanMax®

XanMax® is considered safe for adult consumption when taken as recommended. With each capsule, you get 20mg of lutein and 10mg of zeaxanthin. Once it reaches the retinas, some lutein will be converted into meso-zeaxanthin, making sure your eyes have all the support they need.

Always consult your doctor before starting a supplement, and if you experience any changes in your health, it’s important to bring them to your doctor’s attention immediately. You also need to consult your doctor if you currently take any prescription medications.

The Bottom Line

You cannot stop the aging process, but you can stay ahead of it by promoting optimal vision health with supplements that contain XanMax®. Your eyes work at high metabolic rates, so they need the right nutrients to help reduce typical oxidative stress, so you can see your world, through healthier eyes
