Lutein with FloraGLO® from Doctor's Best with FloraGLO® and Zeaxanthin maintains a healthy visual function and supports the density of the macular pigment.
Lutein supports the health of the epidermis and helps prevent aging of the skin. FloraGLO® Lutein is a very high quality, natural and highly bioavailable source of Lutein. Together with Zeaxanthin they are two of the main carotenoids present in man and are highly concentrated in the retina of the human eye.
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are also powerful free radical neutralizers that contribute to the body's spectrum of antioxidant defenses.

How does it work?
Most of the beneficial effects of xanthophylls, which are photochemical transformations of Lutein, are attributed to their ability to extinguish reactive oxygen species and to eliminate other substances from free radicals that are absorbed by the environment or generated internally by natural metabolic processes.
In vitro evidence for the free radical scavenging activity of Lutein has been found in studies of its effects on human lens epithelial cells. In one of these studies, cell cultures were exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light after pretreatment with lutein or alpha-tocopherol. Both nutrients have been found to reduce UV-induced damage to lens epithelial cells. However, lutein has been shown to have significantly higher photoprotective activity than alpha-tocopherol, demonstrating its potential as a high potency antioxidant. It has also been discovered that Lutein is an effective "blue light" filter, another daily source of oxidative stress on the photoreceptors enriched with polyunsaturated fatty acids in our eyes.

Why take Lutein with FloraGLO®
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are yellow pigments in a class of carotenoids called xanthophylls. Since the human body does not synthesize them, we rely on food sources for these carotenoids. The average user consumes only about 2mg per day. The best sources of these important nutrients are dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, cabbage, as well as some yellow-orange fruits and vegetables. Lutein, Zeaxanthin and Meso-Zeaxanthin are called "macular pigments", as they are the only carotenoids present in the lens and in the macular region of the retina of the human eye. Over 20 human studies with FloraGLO® have established a body of publications published in peer-reviewed journals or presented as abstracts in scientific conferences that confirm the efficacy and safety of this particular ingredient.

Take 1 capsule a day.
