Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature with zeaxanthin, a closely related carotenoid. Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eye’s macula and lens, as well as in the skin, breast and cervical tissues. Both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from degradation normally associated with aging and oxidative stress. The macula is responsible for focus and color differentiation. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in dark green, leafy vegetables. While the average American intake of lutein is only 2 mg per day, other population groups consume up to 20 to 25 mg per day.
Jarrow FORMULAS® Lutein is extracted from marigold petals. Each softgel contains 20 mg elemental lutein from lutein esters, which are naturally occurring, more stable and are well absorbed.

You can actually SEE the difference Literally!
By Mike B. from Oakland, California on July 6, 2012
If you have general poor eye heath, or are like my and want to fight getting older one pill at a time, then here is a supplement to consider adding to your overall plan.
I've always *had* 20/20 vision, however now I'm 39, and I can tell that my vision isn't the perfect numbers that I've always been accustom to. Once I consciously realized that I was holding my reading material a little bit farther away to focus better, I started to get VERY serious about my eye health. I've been taking Luteinfor a month now and yes, I can see what all the fuss is about taking Zeaxanthin. When I realized that Jarrow Formulas was distributing Lutein I bought with confidence.
Pros:VERY Easy to Swallow
I would recommend this item to a friend.
