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.*
