Super Lutein contains 6 types of carotenoids, anthocyanin, vitamin E, DHA, and various other nutrients, offering a host of health benefits.
Six Types of Carotenoids
Carotenoids are plant pigments responsible for bright red, yellow and orange hues in many fruits and vegetables. These pigments play an important role in plant health. People who eat foods containing carotenoids get protective health benefits as well.
1. LUTEIN - for Eyes, Skin & Brain
FloraGLO Lutein is the main ingredient in Super Lutein. Lutein itself is a carotenoid nutrient originating from plants. In the body, lutein is present in the skin and in high concentration in the macula, where it is a necessary component for healthy vision. It is not produced by the body, and so must be obtained by absorption through the digestive system. Foods that are rich in lutein include cabbage and spinach.
FloraGLO Lutein is the most clinically researched lutein brand worldwide and the lutein brand most trusted by doctors. It is clinically proven to be absorbed by the body and increase macular pigment. Marigold oleoresin, the raw material for FloraGLO Lutein, is original lutein derived from dried petals of African marigolds. It is then processed using a proprietary manufacturing process, which involves removing fatty acids from lutein esters to obtain free lutein in crystal form. The subsequent drying and screening processes result in high-purity and high-quality FloraGLO Lutein.
LUTEIN & ZEAXANTHIN for Eye Health & Prevention of Eye Diseases
LUTEIN for Immune System, Cancer & Cardiovascular Disease
2. β-cryptoxanthin - for Bone, Eyes & Immune Response
β-cryptoxanthin is an orange pigment abundant in satsuma mandarin oranges, red capsicums, papayas, persimmons,etc. It plays a vital role in bone health, antioxidant defense and cell-to-cell communication. β-cryptoxanthin is a precursor of vitamin A, which is an essential nutrient needed for eyesight, growth, and immune response.
3. α-CAROTENE - for Lung and Skin
4. β-CAROTENE - for Pancreas, Heart & Bone
α- and β-carotene are Vitamin A precursors that transform vitamin A in the body. They are found in the yellow and orange colour pigments of carrots and pumpkin. They have been used as a colour additive in foods, drinks and cosmetics since ancient times. Carotenes will be transformed into vitamin A according to the needs of the body. Carotenes that have not undergone transformation have greater anti-oxidation effects.
Deficiency in vitamin A is associated with blindness in third world countries.
5. LYCOPENE - for Mammary Glands, Liver, Bladder & Prostate
Lycopene is the red colour pigments in tomatoes and has powerful anti-oxidation effect. When turning ripe under the sun, tomatoes protect themselves from the sunlight by producing lycopene.
Processed foods can release the benefits of lycopene better than fresh vegetables, and as lycopene is fat soluble, adding a little oil when cooking can enhance the absorption of lycopene by the body.
6. ZEAXANTHIN- for Eyes & Skin
Zeaxanthin has composition similar to that of lutein. It is stored in large quantities in the yellow spot area of our eyes. Zeaxanthin is a member of the yellow orange pigment and is found in large quantities in plants such as maize and persimmon, as well as green tea, egg yolk, animal fats and the liver. Through the process of metabolism, lutein is transformed into zeaxanthin, both of which are stored in the yellow spot area of the eyes. The latest research shows that lutein and zeaxanthin are located in
different areas of the retina. The centre of the yellow spot has a higher ratio of zeaxanthin, while the periphery is mainly lutein.
Other Essential Nutrients
ANTHOCYANIN - for Eyes & Heart
Anthocyanin is a type of polyphenol found in blackcurrants and blueberries. Research on anthocyanin was inspired by a World War II story that a British pilot attributed his excellent vision, even in the dark, to his love for blueberry jam.
DHA - for Nerve, Blood Circulation & Eyes
DHA improves blood flow, reduces bad cholesterol count, support brain development and protect the ophthalmic nerve. Lutein and DHA are found in breast milk: the combination of which is said to contribute to infant eye, brain and cognitive development through breastfeeding.
VITAMIN E - for Nerve, Blood & Skin
Vitamin E is a fat soluble antioxidant. It has a very good oxidation resistance in the body and forms a protection to the cell membrane. It maintains the integrity of the red blood cells, keeping skin, heart, circulation, nerve and muscles healthy. It is widely used in anti-aging products for the skin. Vitamin E is known as tocopherol, which has a natural moisturizing ability and anti-oxidation ability. It promotes metabolism to accelerate regeneration of wound epidermis and improve skin condition. It improves skin's blood circulation, maintains normal permeability of blood capillary and prevents skin aging as well as enhancing the effectiveness of skin's enzyme.
VITAMINS B1, B2, B6, and B12 - for Nerve, Blood & Skin
Vitamins B1, B2, B6, and B12, help to maintain proper function of human's brain and muscle. The main role is to metabolise carbohydrate, fat and protein, promote growth of human body cells, form red blood cells, renewal of the epithelial cells and maintenance of the nerve's function. They can also reduce restlessness, prevent depression, improve mental concentration, enhance memory and fight fatigue. The B Vitamins are essential in improving skin conditions such as eczema.
