What is Lutein?
Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that gives fruits and vegetables a yellow color. Lutein is found in large quantities in dark leafy vegetables like spinach & kale, and carrots. Lutein can also be found in animal fats and eggs. People are born with a certain amount of Lutein in their eyes, but the body does not reproduce it.
This Lutein is standardized at 5% and is taken from the flowers of the marigold plant (Tagetes erecta). The remaining 95% is plant matter that results as a byproduct from the extraction process.
Lutein is a powerful antioxidant that plays an important part on human health. Most notably, Lutein supports the eyes and promotes healthy vision.† It may also promote heart health and protect the lungs.†
