Lutemax, used in Ridgecrest Products, wins the prestigious NutraIngredients Sports Nutrition Ingredient of the Year Award for their work with Essential Eyes!

When you think of RidgeCrest Herbals, you may picture breezy meadows, snow-capped mountains, and wildflowers soaking up the sun. Your mind may not immediately go to the competitive world of gaming and e-sports - but maybe it should. 

E-sports and gaming is an exciting place to be, filled with talented and skilled individuals who excel in their field. But like an office job, there can be some health risks associated with the work involved. That is why RidgeCrest Herbals is thrilled that our partner, OmniActive Technologies, has won the prestigious NutraIngredients Sports Nutrition Ingredient of the Year Award for their product, Lutemax 2020 - which can be found in RidgeCrest Herbals’ Essential Eyes™ product. 

The strain of blue light from our electronics affects everyone, especially people who spend their work day in front of a screen. Blue Blocking Glasses and dark modes can help fight eye strain, but many people don’t know that there are specific nutrients that benefit eye health that you can use to supplement your eyes from the inside, as well.

Award-winning, globally-recognized Lutemax 2020 is a naturally-derived marigold extract providing all three macular carotenoids: lutein and zeaxanthin isomers (RR-and RS [meso]-zeaxanthin). Lutemax 2020 is formulated at the same 5:1 ratio as found in nature to optimize eye health. The body doesn’t produce lutein and zeaxanthin, and their specialized locations and functions emphasize the need to consume all three macular carotenoids through diet or supplementation.

There are hundreds of carotenoids, but only two are located in the human eye - lutein, and zeaxanthin. These aren’t produced by the human body and must be ingested, but the Western diet is severely lacking in this area. Carotenoids help the body filter blue light and defend the eye from oxidative stress. 

It’s no wonder that Lutemax 2020 has become popular among the gaming community. You can try Essential Eyes here!
