Swanson's Lutein contains one of the highest strengths of FloraGLO® brand of lutein, an active carotenoid derived from concentrated marigold flower extract, formulated with an exclusive, patented purifying process. While lutein is found in many common foods, most adults may not get sufficient quantities of this beneficial nutrient for their daily diet.
Scientific studies indicate that a minimum of 20 mg of lutein is the critical threshold of efficacy for adults who need to support healthy eye function. The cofactor in Swanson's Lutein, zeaxanthin, also a marigold derivative, synergistically enhances lutein's natural antioxidant strength.
Lutein is a carotenoid occurring naturally in fruits and vegetables, and research suggests that it’s antioxidant properties may help to maintain the health of the skin, eyes and heart and may also be beneficial to women’s reproductive health. The human body cannot manufacture Lutein, so it needs to be obtained from the diet.
