Retinex® (Lutein)

60 Tablets

Key Features

  • Naturally sourced from marigolds
  • Most purified source available
  • 1000mcg zeaxanthin per tablet

Product Overview

  • Gluten Free
  • Suitable for Vegans
  • Gelatin Free

Retinex® contains the powerful ingredient Lutein, a natural carotenoid that is found in many fruits and vegetables as well as in the eye, where it is partly converted into zeaxanthin. Each Healthspan Retinex tablet contains 10mg of natural Lutein and 1,000mcg of Zeaxanthin.

In the eye, Lutein is deposited mainly in the lens and in the central retina (the macula) where it is partly converted into Zeaxanthin.

Our experts recommend upgrading to OptiVision®, which contains 12mg Lutein along with 280mg DHA and 40mg EPA, 2,400mcg zeaxanthin plus vitamin B2 to support the maintenance of normal vision.

Used them for a couple of years

22 February 2015

My husband was been diagnosed with macular degeneration 6 years ago He immediately started the Retinex and has seen improvements in his sight. The opticians wanted to know what he was taking as they were amazed of the change.

22 February 2015

Ordering from Healthspan is quick and easy. The products come well-packed and most fit easily through the letterbox.

Hoping to help prevent Macular Degeneration which is in the family

21 February 2015

Seems to be improving my dry eye sumptoms

21 February 2015

My vision has not deteriorated since taking the Retinex so it is hard to comment on how successful it has been. *This also makes it impossible to rate this product so I will choose excellent in order to be able to submit my feedback.*

21 February 2015

I have in the past found this product helpful since I have slight AMD in my right eye.
Sight always improves when I take this product regularly. Clarity and contrast improves which is useful for night driving. With my worst eye I can now read (with my glasses of course!) car number plates at up to 45 yards. At times in the past I have been down to 25 yards! Again, cutting the sugar right down helps too!

We old folk require 2 per day to protect our eye sight.

I think they are definitely helping my eyesight.

16 February 2015

taken together with other products so I am not sure how this one would help me independently. However, I am not about to stop taking it as I am sure it works for my good overall health.

Helps to maintain good health.
