Overview
Lutein is a naturally occurring carotenoid found primarily in fruits and vegetables. When ingested by humans, it concentrates in a section of the eye called the macula, which is a small area in the center of the retina. Researchers have discovered that Lutein protects the macula by filtering out potentially damaging forms of light. Lutein has been called our "natural sun glasses" due to its ability to protect the eyes against radiation damage by acting as an optic filter and an antioxidant. Moreover, various studies have shown that a direct relationship exists between Lutein intake and pigmentation in the eye; research indicates an increase in macula pigmentation decreases the risk for eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration. Corn, egg yolks, spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, peas, leeks and collard greens all contain high concentrations of Lutein.

Our Lutein is derived from calendula and is available in 100 vegetarian capsules.
