(१)दिन भर की थकान और दैनिकी के मानसिक दवाब के बाद एक ग्लास गर्म दूध (मुमकिन हो तो छुआरे के साथ देर तक लोहे की कढ़ाई में उबाला हुआ )दिन भर की थकान ,नस नस के तनाव को दूर भगा देता है। पेशियों को आराम पहुंचाता है तन और मन दोनों को ऊर्जा से भर देता है। 

(२)भुट्टा lutein से भरा हुआ रहता है। नेत्रों को स्वस्थ  रखता है।  धमनियों की दीवारों को अंदर से कठोर और खुरदरी पड़ने से बचाता है। 



Often used in treatment or prevention of eye diseases, lutein supplements contain a natural substance classified as a carotenoid (a group of plant pigments with antioxidant effects). Sometimes referred to as xanthophyll, lutein is naturally found in a number of fruits and vegetables (especially those with deep green, orange, and yellow coloring). Lutein supplements provide a more concentrated supply of this antioxidant.

Lutein supplements are typically used to treat or prevent eye diseases, such as cataracts andmacular degeneration. Known to build up in the retina and lens of the eye, lutein is thought to protect the eye from injury induced by free radicals (chemical byproducts shown to damage cells and contribute to the development of certain diseases).

Some proponents claim that lutein supplements can also help prevent colon cancerbreast cancer,diabetes, and heart disease.

other health benefits of lutein  supplements 

To date, most of the studies on lutein's health benefits have focused on dietary intake of lutein. Those studies suggest that dietary intake of lutein may help protect against atherosclerosis, age-related macular degeneration, and cataracts. While few studies have examined the health effects of lutein supplements, there's some evidence that lutein supplements may improve eye health. Here's a look at two study findings:

Good nutrition is important to keep your eyes healthy and functioning their best throughout your lifetime. Two very important eye nutrients that may reduce your risk for macular degeneration and cataracts have names you may not be familiar with: lutein (LOO-teen) and zeaxanthin (zee-ah-ZAN-thin).

Lutein and zeaxanthin are compounds called xanthophylls (ZAN-thuh-fills), which are yellow pigments that occur naturally in many plants and vegetables. Xanthophylls belong to a class of organic compounds called carotenoids, which also includes orange and red plant pigments. Though lutein is considered a yellow pigment, in high concentrations it appears orange-red.

In nature, lutein and zeaxanthin appear to absorb excess light energy to prevent damage to plants from too much sunlight, especially from high-energy light rays called blue light.

In addition to being found in many green leafy plants and colorful fruits and vegetables, lutein and zeaxanthin are found in high concentrations in the macula of the human eye, giving the macula its yellowish color. In fact, the macula also is called the "macula lutea" (from the Latin macula, meaning "spot," and lutea, meaning "yellow").

Recent research has discovered a third xanthophyll in the macula. Called meso-zeaxanthin, this carotenoid is not found in food sources and appears to be created in the retina from ingested lutein.

Lutein and zeaxanthin appear to have important antioxidant functions in the body. Along with other natural antioxidants, including vitamin Cbeta carotene and vitamin E, these xanthophylls guard the body from damaging effects of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can destroy cells and play a role in many diseases.

In addition to important eye and vision benefits, lutein may help protect against atherosclerosis( धमनी काठिन्य ,धमनी की दीवारों का अंदर से खुरदरी होना ,कठोर पड़  जाना,चिकनाई से अवरुद्ध हो जाना  )(buildup of fatty deposits in arteries), the disease that leads to most heart attacks.

Cooked spinach is one of the best natural food sources of lutein and zeaxanthin.
