Lutein Powder
I have been using the Lutein powder for around three months as part of my morning mix of supplements. I hadn’t really given it much thought except for the idea that this substance has proven to help prevent cataracts and macular degeneration. Who wouldn’t want that? After a few weeks to a month I kept asking myself if my night vision wasn’t better. Now I am sure of the added benefit! As a footnote, I have been taking roughly a quarter teaspoon per day which was suggested by another reviewer.*

Reduced Eye Strain
After taking this product for a few weeks I feel like I’ve definitey noticed a difference. My eyes feel under less strain when I’m walking around outside without sunglasses. The product seems high quality and I’m excited to see what continued benefits I’ll get from it. *

Eye health and function
Lutein is reported to relieve dry eyes and remove or ;lessen eye floaters, which are small various shapes speckles seen when looking at a clear surface. Promotes eye health, eye function and night vision. Beautiful dark orange color. Tastes great alone or easily mixable. *

On 3/27/2019 Joseph said...

very convenient
I don't like taking pills. Having lutein in a powder form allows me to mix it with yogurt so that taking it is completely painless! *

Great Product!
Great product for eye health. I can always trust the quality of products from this company. The shipping and customer service are top notch! Thank you!*

What A Surprise
I had no idea the effect this product would make on my dry eyes !!! They are more lubricated and now have increased tolerance to bright sunlight...and I find it improving more and more... I hope you try this and find the same positive results, as well.*

Eyes Feel Less Dry
This lutein powder smells very fresh. It has a vivid golden color and is ground very fine. It mixes easily and completely into my morning green drink and I cannot taste it. I have used the product for the past four days and amazingly my eyes feel less dry. I will continue to take the lutein daily at the recommended dosage and I hope that my eye dryness will be managed by the supplement.*

On 12/1/2017 Shirley said...

I bought this for eye health. After taking it only a few days my eyes seem to be less tired and less dry. It's a beautiful color. The taste is ok. Thank you for another wonderful product.*

Lutein 5% - 250g Pure Powder
I have been taking lutein 5% capsules from other places, but I never seem to be able to take a large enough dose. Since I bought this from Bulk Supplement, I am able to take about 800 milligram once a day. Time will tell if it works since I have only been taking it for about a month. However, I know that this is the purest form of Lutein out there.*

Lutein powder
I love this, the colour is specatcular, and the taste is pleasant, I tried putting into water, but directly in the mouth works best, it just melts...*

On 2/1/2017 Nina said...

Double the dose worked for me
I began using the Lutein 5% at the recommended dosage, but i was not seeing much change after 2-3 weeks. After reading a review here that someone used TWICE the recommended dosage and was having results i gave that a try. I took 800mg 1/day. And it worked at that dosage for me! I started having less eye strain and tired eyes.
I am in front of a computer screen for most of a day and this truly helps with eye strain for me.
I also started using saffron as well for the dryness and that helped me too. I started this about a month after i was seeing results from the Lutein.
This is my second order of Lutein in powder form, it seems to work better that the capsules i have found in other stores. I will continue using this product!*

Customer service is outstanding
I have only been taking it for a few days so I have not realized any benefit as of yet. I anxiously await...*

I use it and I give it to my elderly dogs to keep keep their eyes healthy, too.*

Fabulus Product
Lutein is one Fabulous Product! I don't go a day without it. The first 2 times I have taken it, I went through such an immediate detox with my eyes and nervous system, I couldn't believe it. *

wow, great stuff*

On 5/7/2016 Sharon said...

Another arrow in the quiver
Glad to have this in the antioxidant arsenal. It's very orange. It is also a better value than capsule form, as is the case with all of the bulk supplements I've ordered from

Love how fast they get the product out the door - pretty much in 24 hours or less every time - can't beat that. Don't love the post office that took right at a week each time to deliver product to an adjacent state, missing their own estimates twice in the process.

With regard to the lutein itself, I bought it to supplement eye health.*

For macular degeneration and floaters
i have been using this product for 10 days. I have macular degeneration and will continue to take this as a preventive measure against further degeneration. My eyes feel less dry so I think it is accomplishing something positive. Several months ago I had several large floaters appear in one eye and had an eye exam done. The doctor said the floaters should gradually decrease. I located this product as I thought I should be doing something to help with the floaters. In 10 days I have noticed this has helped a bit in having the size of the floaters decrease. I have noticed that my night vision has improved a bit. *

Good for eyesight

Lutein 5%
Great for AMD - some support for cognitive function.
Great flow so needed less mag stearate for encapsulation.
Importantly, good price in a pinch,*

Tastes like carrots
It tastes good. I'm having eye problems. I thought this might help. *

On 1/19/2016 Patricia said...

I've been taking lutein for my eyesight, for some time now.
But was thrilled to find Bulk Supplements carried it in 5% form... mixed only with the marigold leaves it comes from... instead of nasty excipients and fillers.

I mix mine with a bit of oil and lecithin, pour hot water over it, stir, drink as a tea.

Thank you, Bulk Supplements.


On 10/14/2015 Laurie said...

This is my reorder of Lutein 5% from the Bulk Supplement. After taking it every day since my last order, there is a definite improvement of how my eyes feel and see now. I'll never stop taking it as long as it helps my vision. *

Twenty-five milligrams per day for the rest of your life
The following, abstracted from MEDLINE (GreenMedInfo), are the benefits of lutein:

High combined intakes of vitamin C, beta-carotene, beta-cryptoxanthin, and lutein/zeaxanthin from food significantly inversely correlated with DNA translocation damage in persons such as airline pilots subjected to chronic ionizing radiation. There was no correlation with intakes of vitamin E, alpha-carotene, or lycopene from food.

Lutein for eye strain
After several years of eye strain, I decided to try supplements for some level of relief. I am happily to report that after only 2 weeks of taking 800mg of 5% lutein powder daily I am experiencing less eye strain every day. The only problem I have with the product is that it doesn't mix completely when using a shaker bottle, otherwise I am very happy with the outline, bulk supplements, and their great shipping department.*

Seems to be helping eyes.
Have tried this for 2 months now for my eyes. Don't seem to be as dry and itchy as they were. Will continue to use this. I like having an alternative to capsules and that it is pure. *

On 9/25/2014 Shirley said...

Needed to try this for the eyes and it is a bit soon to tell if it is working. It is a bit hard to mix for liposomal. We will keep at it for the next batch.*

On 9/25/2014 Carole said...

Solid solution
High quality and hard to find better price.
The amount you get is geared toward long-term and consistent supplement usage for vision. So, give it a try and don't turn a blind eye to your health.

Lutein 5%
I used this for a small production run. Came with COA but ran an HPLC to verify – and it did. Ran micro on the final product and it was within limits. Thus, excellent quality and great service.*

delicious supplement
I ordered this lutein supplement because I have dry eyes as a consequence of chemotherapy. I wanted to help protect my eyes from further degeneration, especially since I am out in the sun a lot. I also wanted to see if the lutein would help remoisturize my eyes. It has only been two weeks of lutein use but my eyes have started to feel a little more comfortable.

In addition, the lutein has a nice carroty/pumkiny aroma and taste, so I enjoy adding it as a flavoring to my food.

I usually shop for completely unadulterated supplements, but I couldn't find lutein or other carotinoids without other ingredients. I wasn't sure that I would like this supplement because it is only 5% lutein, 95% maltodextrin. But it turns out to be fine; it makes the lutein really easy to mix into water and it's easy to measure out the tiny serving size.

I had no idea what maltodextrin was before I ordered this. While waiting for the supplement to arrive, I started to do some research. It turns out that maltodextrin is pretty harmless and inoffensive, and it also has some interesting and useful properties. So I am also using this lutein/maltodextrin combination for mad science experiments as well as boring lutein supplementation.

I am so glad to find this site to order pure powders, and I ordered 500g of Lutein for my family, since people overuse their eyes on 3C stuffs. The taste is OK, at least my kids can accept it, but still need time to evaluate it. *

Product Questions

Hello. I see this product is sourced from marigolds. Does it also contain zeaxanthin? You may want to advertise the amount as added value, if so.
