◆ Organic Lutein Powder CAS 127-40-2 from marigold Asteraceae Tagetes. Lutein is one of the most common Carotenoids widely presented in plants especially dark-green leafy vegetables. Lutein is synthesized only by plant itself and like other xanthophylls which is usually found in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and Marigold Flower.
◆ In green plants, lutein act as modulate light energy and serve as a non-photochemical quenching agent to deal with triplet chlorophyll (an excited form of chlorophyll), which is over produced at very high light levels, during photosynthesis. Lutein is also a very important natural yellow pigment in our lives due to its color.

◆ Organic Lutein Powder CAS 127-40-2 is concentrated in the central part of the retina, called the macula. In the macula are yellow pigments (macular pigments composed of zeaxanthin and lutein) which protect the retina from damage of the photo-oxidative effect of blue light.
◆ Powdered Lutein can also reduce the risk for artery diseases. Studies have shown that persons with the highest lutein intake showed the lowest artery wall thickening.
