Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Natural support for eye health

About Lutein and Zeaxanthin

Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids naturally occurring in plants, especially in green leafy vegetables like spinach and kale.

Lutein is well known and has been extensively studied for its benefits to eye health, particularly in aging. In other studies, lutein has demonstrated anti-inflammatory properties and improvement in skin elasticity*.

Zeaxanthin is also an antioxidant, limiting oxidative damage and supporting the immune system*.

Lutein can also be used as a food colorant, helping food manufacturers in their transition to clean labels**.
