Lutein 10% – Powder, 50g
Lutein is a oxygenated carotenoid found in vegetables and fruits, it is also found in the macula of the eye, where it is believed to act as a yellow filter, decreasing sensitivity and damage caused by blue light. Lutein is also thought to protect cells against the damaging effects of free radicals.
Animals obtain lutein by ingesting plants. In the human retina, lutein is absorbed from blood specifically into the macula lutea. Although its precise role in the body is unknown, it is thought to be beneficial to eye health. Lutein is also found in egg yolks and animal fats.

What is Lutein?Lutein is a xanthophyll and one of 600 known naturally occurring carotenoids. Lutein is synthesized only by plants, and like other xanthophylls is found in high quantities in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and yellow carrots. In green plants, xanthophylls act to modulate light energy and serve as non-photochemical quenching agents to deal with triplet chlorophyll (an excited form of chlorophyll), which is overproduced at very high light levels, during photosynthesis.
