Lutein science has more than tripled over the last few years and now more than 200 published studies support lutein's eye health benefits. Research suggests 10 mg of lutein each day is vital for increasing macular pigment density and reducing the likelihood of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and other serious eye conditions. The next major independent study will be the second Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS2) conducted by the National Eye Institute.
