Natural Lutein

LuteinĀ (pronounced loo-teen) is a naturally-occurring carotenoid and antioxidant found in nature. Numerous studies have found this antioxidant to be beneficial in eye health, helping to prevent and treat a variety of eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts. Lutein supports macular health by helping filter harmful blue light which helps keep the macula of the eye healthy. This carotenoid is most commonly found in plants, egg yolks, and animal fats thus giving them their rich yellow and orange pigmentation. PIVEG extracts this natural pigment for application in the nutritional supplement, cosmetic, and pet health industries.
