Marigold Flower Extract (Lutein/Zeaxanthin)

These bright yellow brilliant flowers are rich in an incredible trio of eye-loving carotenoids: lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin. These compounds are highly concentrated in the macula region of our retinas. A healthy macula dense in these yellowish pigments is what allows us to see details — what is called visual acuity. These pigments are like internal sunglasses, protecting our delicate eye surfaces from the ravages of light. Strong evidence suggests that many of us do not get nearly adequate amounts of zeaxanthin and lutein, both of which are sadly lacking in today's modern diets. A nutritional cousin of lutein and zeaxanthin called meso-zeaxanthin is produced from lutein in the retina itself, a transformation that slows down as we get older, hence the need to supplement these in their pure, natural form every day. Countless studies indicate that these carotenoids are invaluable to eye health at relevant concentrations.

Our lutein and zeaxanthin are extracted with our unique SuperPure processing method that disallows the use of any and all toxic chemical solvents (because who wants these anywhere near their eyes?). We use only the "free" forms of lutein and zeaxanthin, which research shows are up to two times or more bioavailable than the cheaper, more commonly used ester form, and are therefore considered the gold standard.
