10:10:2 is the milligram ratio of Meso-Zeaxanthin, Lutein, and Zeaxanthin, has been shown to increase macular pigment density. You think ok so why do I care about macular pigment density. Well, the macular pigment is the shield that protects the retina. If macular pigment density drops too much, our retina becomes exposed to the damaging effects of blue light. Blue light can cause severe damage to the eye which can lead to macular degeneration.
Getting the right nutrients is essential to good health. But getting the right amount of each nutrient is just as essential. And when it comes to the carotenoids meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin, there’s a very specific milligram ratio that’s most effective for supporting eye health—10:10:2.
Why is this the best ratio of these critical eye antioxidants?
Well, for one, it’s been shown to increase macular pigment density. In case you don’t know, meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin are used by your body to create something called macular pigment. Macular pigment is located in your retina, and acts as a filter for blue light, which can damage your retina.
Blue light is everywhere nowadays. You’re exposed to it when you look at your phone, watch TV, work on your laptop, surf the internet on your tablet or use any other digital devices. It’s also in energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs, LED lights and even sunshine. Exposure to too much blue light without enough macular pigment to protect you can lead to eye problems. It can even increase your risk of serious eye diseases like macular degeneration.
But scientific trials show that it’s possible to increase the amount of macular pigment in your retina by taking meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin supplements in that perfect 10:10:2 ratio—10 milligrams of meso-zeaxanthin, 10 milligrams of lutein and 2 milligrams of zeaxanthin.
By increasing the amount of macular pigment in the eye, studies show that this 10:10:2 ratio of macular carotenoids can support eye health in several ways. It can improve visual performance, make your eyes more resilient to the stress caused by blue and other types of light and enhance chromatic contrast (your ability to see the difference between colors).
Does that mean you should try a 10:10:2 ratio of meso-zeaxanthin, lutein and zeaxanthin for yourself?
It’s the most scientifically-backed way to support your eyes with supplements. And it’s one of the few ways to increase the density of that protective macular pigment in your eye. So, if you’re ready to take a step toward better eye health, it’s by far your best bet.
