Lutemax 2020 and Blue Light: How Does It Work?
Before we try to explain how Lutemax 2020 helps our eyes’ ability to safely filter blue light, let’s find out exactly what blue light is and why it’s important to protect yourself from too much exposure. One of those protective layers is taking Lutemax 2020 supplements like ADDA.
What is Blue Light?
Visible light has many color wavelengths and blue light is one of those wavelengths. It is one of the shortest, highest-energy wavelengths, and just beyond blue light is the ultraviolet (UV) radiation wavelength. We all know that UV radiation has important benefits (vitamin D manufacture in the body) and serious dangers (that awful, painful sunburn). The same thing is true about blue light.
The main source of blue light is the sun. But there are in-door sources of blue light, too. Where does blue light come from? Some examples are flat-screen TVs and LED lighting. But far more disturbing is the amount of blue light being emitted by computer screens and smartphones. We all know none of us are ever too far away from one or the other of these digital devices.
What Does Blue Light Do?
Blue light is beneficial during the day because it helps to boost mood, reaction time, and attention. But not so much for the nighttime. Blue light disrupts sleep. It messes with your circadian rhythms by suppressing the secretion of melatonin. Blue light can damage light-sensitive cells in our retinas. It seems that the eye is not really good at filtering and blocking blue light like it does UV rays. Blue light causes damage to retinal tissue by not only promoting oxidative stress but also increases stress in the endoplasmic reticulum (let’s just say this is damage at a cellular level which can lead to blindness). Blue light damage can lead to anywhere from eye fatigue to macular degeneration which can lead to permanent vision loss. There is also a possible link to cataract formation.
So What Can We Do About It?
There are several things you can do to protect your eyes from blue light. For better sleep, avoid looking at your computer or smartphone two to three hours before sleep. And when you are using your digital devices use a blue light filter or glasses.
In today’s environment, with work-at-home here to stay and students schooling remotely, the use of digital devices has increased dramatically. This calls for a blue light blocking heavy-hitter. This heavy-hitter is Lutemax 2020.
How Does Lutemax 2020 Work?
Let’s start by explaining how the eye tries to protect itself from blue light damage. Pigments in the eye called carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin, and meso-zeaxanthin) which are found in the retina act as internal filters to absorb harmful blue light. These pigments are antioxidants also found in leafy greens, and yellow and orange fruits and vegetables, that prevent damage to plants from too much sunlight. Only 10% of adults eat the recommended amounts of these fruits and vegetables. Lutemax 2020 is a natural extract from the sunflower that contains all three of these powerful antioxidants in the correct ratio that they are found in the diet.
Lutemax 2020 Studies: How It Works Against Blue Light
There are multiple clinical studies that show Lutemax 2020 increases the protective layer of the carotenoids in the retina and thereby improves visual performance. They also show Lutemax 2020 protects the eyes during prolonged exposure to digital device use, improves sleep quality, and supports cognitive performance.
Lutemax 2020 Supplements: ADDA
Why risk any damage to your eyesight? You can either step away from the computer, tablet, or smartphone (not really an option) or take a supplement containing Lutemax 2020 (definitely the better choice). Our ADDA daily supplement contains the clinical level of Lutemax 2020 used in the clinical studies talked about above. Oh, and don’t forget to add more of those fruits and vegetables to your everyday meals. Your eyes will thank you.
