Found in dark leafy greens, lutein is a natural plant pigment and potent antioxidant. It is present in high concentrations in the lens and macula of the human eye. As an antioxidant, it has the important role of maintaining eye health. Lutein also protects sensitive retinal cells by absorbing blue light, which can be especially damaging to our eyes. Lutein is naturally found with zeaxanthin in many vegetables and plants. Once consumed, lutein and zeaxanthin accumulate in the eye, suggesting that they both play an important role in eye health.
Since lutein is a fat soluble nutrient, it requires fat for proper absorption. Vsoftgel™ technology allows lutein to be delivered to the body in an oil based softgel for enhanced bioavailability. AOR’s Vsoftgel™ Lutein also provides free lutein rather than a lutein ester for enhanced absorbability by the body. Free lutein is what is found in human serum and our bodies will convert lutein esters from our diets, into free lutein for use. Vsoftgel™ Lutein allows the body to skip this step. AOR’s Lutein extract naturally contains a small amount of zeaxanthin because wherever lutein is found, zeaxanthin is naturally present.
Lutein helps maintain normal, healthy eyesight.* Formulated as a softgel, AOR’s patent pending Vsoftgel™ technology for this fat-soluble nutrient.
