- Promotes healthy vision.
- Guards the macula against oxidative stress and the effects of aging.
Lutein may offer nutritional support to those organs directly exposed to the environment, the eyes and skin. Lutein is found in the retinas of the eyes and is essential for proper vision. It has been shown to lower the risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration, and atherosclerosis. Lutein may also give supplemental antioxidant ability to the skin. Dietary lutein and zeaxanthin occur naturally together and they concentrate in the macula and lens of the eye to help protect the macula from oxidative stress.
Jarrow Formulas® Lutein is derived from the petals of the marigold. Each softgel offers 20 mg lutein from 40 mg lutein esters, which occur naturally, are more stable, and are well absorbed.
: Take 1 softgel per day with food, or as directed by your qualified health care consultant.

Notes: Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin, a closely related carotenoid. Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eye’s macula and lens, as well as in the skin, breast and cervical tissues.* Both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from degradation normally associated with aging and oxidative stress.* The macula is responsible for focus and color differentiation. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in dark green, leafy vegetables. While the average American intake of lutein is only 2 mg per day, other population groups consume up to 20 to 25 mg per day.*
