Get Vision Health Support With Lutein Plus
Lutein is a carotenoid found in fruits and vegetables. Lutein is not produced by the body and can be only be obtained by eating large amounts of certain fruits and vegetables or through food and vitamin supplements. Lutein products are in high demand by consumers who don't have time or don't choose to consume enough lutein. If you are concerned about the health of your vision, consider taking a supplement which contains Lutein.
Lutein is the primary carotenoid found in the macula. The macula is the central part of the retina. Lutein can be found in the eyes, serum, skin, cervix, brain, and breast. Lutein deposits itself in the macular region of the human eye, as well as in the entire retina, ciliary iris bodies, and lens. Lutein is not a vitamin, it is an antioxidant that can help to protect the macula tissue from destructive reactions by free radicals. Lutein also helps to filter high-energy blue light that can damage the macula and skin.
Lutein Lowers Your Chances For Macular Degeneration and Cataracts
Harvard researchers found that eating 6 mg of lutein every day lowered the odds of developing macular degeneration by 43%. Macular Degeneration is a leading cause of blindness in the elderly. Studies have shown that loading up on lutein can also reduce the likelihood of cataracts by 20% to 50%. However, further research is necessary before a specific health benefit can be determined.
Lutein can be found in green leafy vegetables, but few people eat enough of these vegetables to get a sufficient intake of lutein. To get your recommended dose of 6 mg per day, one must eat a large bowl of spinach salad.
Why Does Vitabase Use FloraGlo Lutein?
Vitabase uses FloraGlo® lutein extract in Lutein Plus. FloraGlo® lutein is the highest-quality lutein you can buy. FloraGlo® lutein is purified from marigold extract using a patented process which ensures it is the same lutein found in nature.
Unlike other forms of lutein, like lutein esters, FloraGlo® lutein is chemically identical to the lutein you would find in spinach, kale, collard greens, and other green leafy vegetables. In fact, 93% of the lutein absorbed by the human body is present as lutein, not lutein esters.
