Lutein from natural calendula Lutein by Now Foods is a product based on lutein, a red-orange carotenoid pigment produced by plants and present in the diet in fruit and vegetables.
In the body, lutein is one of the predominant pigments concentrated in the macula, a specialist part of the eye responsible for central vision. In addition, it is known to be deposited on the skin. Lutein plays a functional role in these vulnerable tissues to protect them from light and from free radicals. This product is naturally derived from calendula flowers, which contain a wide spectrum of carotenoids, including zeaxanthin.
