Lutein Protects Your Eyes
I owned a natural food store in Richmond, Virginia. This was in 1971. I don't remember exactly when I started taking Lutein but it was in the 1970s. I will be 71 in September of 2018. I don't wear glasses, I can read the phone book (outside at least, inside if the light is good) and I can also see well at long distance. I'm not sure if the results would be the same if you start taking it late in life but Lutein helps maintain macular health in the eyes so I assume no matter when you start consuming it, you will be doing something positive for your vision. If I stop taking it (as when I run out), after a week or so I notice my eyes are not as sharp as they were when I take it. You can't double blind your life but this is one health supplement that has an effect on me that I can see. I take Vitamin E for my heart but there's no way to tell how that's going. But I play tennis often, can still run at full speed and take no prescription drugs. I must be doing something right!!!
