In this report, Technavio analysts highlight the health benefits of lutein as a key factor contributing to the growth of the global market:
Health benefits of lutein
The consumption of lutein, which is one of the common carotenoids that is found in fruits and vegetables, improves health in many ways. It is good for both human and animal consumption. Lutein has high amounts of antioxidant properties, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and vitamin E that protect the body from damage against free radicals. It also helps in boosting heart health by protecting the heart against atherosclerosis, which is a disease that leads to fatty deposits in arteries. Besides, as it has antioxidative inflammatory properties, it reduces the inflammation of heart and arteries.
Lutein is also found to occur naturally in the human skin. It filters the high energy wavelengths and slows the rate of oxidative stress. This helps in lowering the risk of skin cancer and other light-induced skin damage. Thus, the addition of lutein to the diet can help in protecting the skin from harmful rays.
According to a senior analyst at Technavio for food, “Consumption of lutein diet is very helpful for boosting eye health. It is present naturally in small amounts in the retina of the eyes and blocks blue light from entering the underlying layers of the retina. This prevents the risk of light-induced oxidative damage and AMD. It also reduces the risk of disease progression and enhances visual acuity in AMD patients.”
