Lutein is a xanthophyll, or an oxygen-containing carotenoid. Carotenoids are responsible for the naturally occurring yellow, orange, and red pigments found in foods. They are considered essential nutrients— since our bodies cannot make them, we must get them through food or supplementation.
Research has shown lutein and zeaxanthin reduced the occurrence of advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) by 25% over 5 years in people diagnosed with AMD.
High dietary intakes of lutein and high levels of circulating lutein have been associated with better heart health.
Lutein, along with other carotenoids, may improve cancer prognosis.
Research indicates that a high dietary intake and high lutein circulating levels are associated with better cognitive performance and enhanced memory.
