Lutein - The Nutritional Vision Quest
One of the more surprising discoveries of modern nutritional science is that
the very pigments which give brilliant color to our fruits and vegetables are
powerful nutrients which can protect us from the rigors of time and environment.
Lutein is one of the most recent discoveries in this field. In our diets, it's
found most abundantly in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, collards
and kale. Like beta-carotene, lutein is a powerful antioxidant which studies
show can contribute to the protection of cells. But the most promising application
of lutein may be its beneficial influence on the eyes, particularly in regard
to macular degeneration.
Like the beta-carotene that makes carrots orange and the lycopene that makes
tomatoes red, lutein is a carotenoid. It is the pigment that makes corn yellow,
and gives marigolds their brilliant golden color. One of the most interesting
aspects of the way carotenoids interact with the human body - beyond their broad
spectrum antioxidant activity - is their tendency to be "organ specific."
Different carotenoids have an affinity for different organs in the body. In
the case of lutein, it is found concentrated in the structure of our eyes.
Source Naturals Lutein is extracted from specially grown marigold flowers high
in Lutein, and purified by an exclusive patented process. So the next time you
bathe your eyes in a golden bouquet of marigolds, remember their beauty really
is in the eye of the beholder.
