Supports visual function and macular health*
- Supports healthy eyes
- Formulated with free lutein for superior efficacy
- Contains zeaxanthin, an important component in the retina
Lutein is the dominant component of the peripheral retina and is present in high concentrations in the lens and macula of the human eye. Lutein’s main function is to support ocular health by promoting the absorption of blue light and ultraviolet rays. Lutein is a natural plant pigment and potent antioxidant naturally found with zeaxanthin in many vegetables and plants, especially dark leafy greens. Once consumed, lutein and zeaxanthin accumulate in the eye. AOR’s Lutein 20 mg extract is made from Tagetes erecta or marigold flower oleoresin, and it contains a small amount of zeaxanthin; wherever lutein is found, zeaxanthin is naturally present.
Since lutein is a fat-soluble nutrient, it requires fat for proper absorption. Our Vsoftgel™ technology delivers lutein to the body in an oil-based soft-gel for enhanced bioavailability. AOR’s Vsoftgel™ Lutein also provides free lutein rather than a lutein ester for enhanced absorbability. Free lutein is found in the human retina and our bodies convert lutein esters from our diets into free lutein for use. Vsoftgel™ Lutein allows the body to skip this step.
AOR’s Lutein is formulated in a carrageenan-free vegan softgel, offering optimal absorption and suitability for various dietary preferences or restrictions. As marigold is considered an invasive plant species, AOR’s Lutein is a superior option when considering environmental impact.
DISCUSSION: Lutein helps maintain normal, healthy eyesight.*
