ICaps Lutein and Zeaxanthin formula is specially designed for those who are concerned with taking care of their eye health, those who may be at risk from age-related eye conditions and those who may be regularly exposed to sunlight. This dietary supplement is made with lutein and zeaxanthin that help to reduce any damage to the eye that may be caused by free radicals, and added vitamins and minerals to keep up the maintenance of healthy eyes and general eye health.
ICaps can help to maintain healthy eyes, although food supplementation should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet.
How ICaps work:
- New once-daily tablet to help support eye health, with extra lutein.

- ICaps contains zinc acetate, found to be the best tolerated form of zinc with one of the greatest levels of absorption.
- Provides raised serum concentrations of lutein, which can be related to increased macular pigment density.
- Once-daily lutein supplements.
- Sustained release formula for greater absorption and less stomach irritation.
What are Lutein and Zeaxanthin?
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are considered essential micronutrients for eye health. They occur in healthy eyes as a part of the macular pigment. Eye experts often use the density of the macula as a measure of how healthy our eyes are.
Unfortunately, years of exposure to damaging light and oxidative stress can mean that the macula degenerates as we get older. The effect of this is decreased macula density and age-related vision loss.
ICaps provides a rich source of lutein and zeaxanthin which contributes to the maintenance of eye health.
How do I incorporate Lutein and Zeaxanthin in my diet?
Although the body cannot naturally produce lutein, zeaxanthin can be made from lutein. Lutein belongs to a group of compounds called carotenoids. These pigments give yellow, green or orange colouration to vegetables and fruits and are precursors for Vitamin A, which helps vision in dim light.
Doctors recommend that, to naturally add these two compounds to your diet, you should eat broccoli, kale, spinach, sweet potatoes, squash, red grapes, green and orange peppers, kiwi, mango, peaches, collard greens, papaya, lima beans and apricots.
Lutein is naturally found in egg yolk and several plants especially dark-green leafy vegetables. It is also present in some flowers (marigolds), red peppers, beetroots, okra, leeks, and peas.
