lutein Introduction

Lutein is one of the carotenoids, yellow and orange pigments found in many fruits and vegetables including mangoes, corn, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, tomatoes and dark, leafy greens such as kale, collards and bok choy.  It is related to beta-carotene and vitamin A. Foods rich in lutein include broccoli, spinach, kale, corn, orange pepper, kiwi fruit, grapes, orange juice, zucchini, and squash. Lutein is absorbed best when it is taken with a high-fat meal.

Molecule structure

Where are lutein extracted from?

Lutein is a natural pigment found in plants and certain other foods that has significant health benefits. It is deposited in high concentrations in the retina and lens of your eye, where it is especially important for vision. Lutein and zeaxanthin are commonly found in dark-green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, and are well-absorbed from egg yolk. A large egg yolk contains 252 mcg of lutein and zeaxanthin.

lutein Benefit and Dosage

1. Eye health (Aged-related macular degeneration, Cataracts)

Many clinical studies has shown that a higher intake of Lutein ( along with another antioxidant carotenoid known as zeaxanthin) is associated with a superior level of eye health. Lutein are known to accumulate in the eye where they act as a high energy blue light filter and protect underlying retinal cells from oxidative stress.

Population studies suggest that people who consume higher amounts of lutein in their diet have a reduced risk of developing aged-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is an age-related degenerative eye disorder which appears to affect up to 5% of persons above the age of 65.

Some studies suggest that eating higher amounts of lutein might decrease the risk of developing cataracts. Cataracts occur when certain proteins in the lens form abnormal clumps that prevent them from seeing clearly. Cataracts usually develop because of old age.

Our body's natural supply of Lutein may decrease with age, which makes taking a Lutein supplement important.

Recommended dosage —— 20 mg of lutein per day taken with fat-containing food to improve absorption.
