Also known as
Lutein is a bright yellow to orange colored phytochemical of the carotene class. It is synthesized only by plants and is found in high quantities in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and yellow carrots, but can also be found in egg yolks and animal fats, dependent on diet. Lutein has broad range antioxidant properties, and is most linked with eyesight and general eye health.
Recommended amount per dose is 30-150 mg per day for normal supplementation. Do not consume without an accurate mg scale.
Lutein is a dietary antioxidant belonging to the carotene family. While lutein is a carotenoid, like beta-carotene, it is not a precursor for vitamin A, and should not be treated as such. Rather, lutein itself is supportive to the eyes, and is believed to block blue light from reaching the inner retina, helping protect the eye from light-induced oxidative damage.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
