Lutein 5% Powder
Because Lutein is not made naturally by the body, it must be supplemented or found through dietary means. The darkest vegetables (including dark green veggies) are usually great sources of Lutein. Also, Carotenoid containing vegetables are more easily absorbed, and their Carotenoid content more easily absorbed when the vegetables are steamed.
Most of the time it is hard to get the correct amount of Lutein needed by the body by way of one's diet. For this reason it is best to supplement a Carotenoid such as this.
