Table of contents
Lutein by HSNessentials is a food supplement made from lutein in vegetable capsules.
- Lutein by HSNessentials provides 40mg of lutein per serving (2 vegetable capsules) extracted from the Tagetes erecta plant, which is commonly called 'Marigold'.
- Lutein is a fat-soluble pigment. Specifically, it is a dihydroxylated carotenoid that belongs to the xanthophyll class that can be found in many vegetables, algae, bacteria, and plants.
- The sources of lutein that are used to produce supplements are very different. Most of the Lutein supplements that are found in the market are obtained from the petals of the Marigold plant, which is regarded as one of the best sources of this carotenoid.
- Lutein extracted from the Marigold plant: The Mexican Marigold, also known as Aztec marigold or cempasuchil, is an annual plant native to Mexico. Its flower is very aromatic and its tones range from orange to yellow. This plant grows in warm climates with a low humidity. The Mexican marigold flowers (Tagete erecta) are the most important source of lutein, since they can also be found in some varieties of alpha and beta-carotene as well.
- Vegetable capsules: No ingredient of animal origin has been used to produce these lutein capsules, therefore, it is suitable for vegetarians/vegans.
Lutein can be combined with a wide range of products. You just have to make sure that the combining product does not provide additional lutein.
