Lutein 10mg (Marigold Extract) Capsules
A carotenoid that gives marigolds their characteristic colour, Lutein is found naturally in the macula, a part of the eye. Lindens Lutein 10mg Capsules contain a standardised extract of marigold yielding 10mg lutein.
Lutein is a yellow carotenoid that is not produced in the body, and so it has to be obtained from leafy green vegetables in the diet. In nature it helps to protect the plant from being damaged by excessive sunlight. In the human body it works in a similar way, helping to protect the delicate light-sensitive tissue that line the back of the eye (the macula).
A number of clinical studies have shown that diets that are low in lutein can result in diminished levels of lutein in the macula. This research backs up what your mother always told you – you need to eat your greens! If your are not eating enough of these vegetables, you might want to make sure that you are getting enough lutein by taking it as a supplement.
Up to 10mg of Lutein per day has been proven by research to dramatically reduce the risk of or indeed the progression of age related macula degeneration and cataracts.
Insufficient levels of lutein in the macula have been identified as a risk factor in the onset of age-related macula degeneration (AMD). Up to 10mg of Lutein per day has been proven by research to dramatically reduce the risk of or indeed the progression of age related macula degeneration and cataracts.
The main ingredients in natural eye health supplements are lutein and zeaxanthin and experts agree that marigold flowers as the best source for both.
Zoom Health Lutein capsules are produced using marigold flower extract. Each lutein capsule provides a full 10mg of lutein (pure, free-form) per capsule, making our natural health supplement one of the strongest available.
