What is "Super Lutein"

Super Lutein contains five of the most important types of carotenoids, five types of the most essential nutrients based on the human needs and combines this vegetative function by the best proportion.

Lutein is an essential nutrient for humans but it is unable to synthesize in the human body. Apart from the good result for human eyes, Super Lutein also shows very good results for the skin, uterus, liver, blood, kidney, head and stomach.

Research proves that oxidation causes many diseases affecting us today. This is because our bodies lack sufficient levels of antioxidants that prevent attacking cells from taking in excessive oxygen. This generates a potentially damaging by-product called 'free radicals'.

Super Lutein provides significant nutrition for your immune system, working to neutralize free radicals and reduce potentially damaging oxidation. Super Lutein is great at protecting your eyes as well as helping you to take care of your overall wellbeing.

Lutein is obtained by solvent extraction of the natural strains of edible fruits and plants, grass, lucerne (alfalfa ) and tagetes erecta. The main colouring principle consists of carotenoids of which lutein and its fatty acid esters account for the major part. Variable amounts of carotenes will also be present. Lutein may contain fats, oils and waxes naturally occurring in the plant material. Only the following solvents may be used for the extraction: methanol, ethanol, propan-2-ol, hexane, acetone, methyl ethyl ketone, dichloromethane and carbon dioxide.

Calendula officinalis (pot marigold, ruddles, common marigold, garden marigold, English marigold, or Scottish marigold) is a plant in the genus Calendula of the family Asteraceae. It is probably native to southern Europe, though its long history of cultivation makes its precise origin unknown, and it may possibly be of garden origin. It is also widely naturalised further north in Europe (north to southern England) and elsewhere in warm temperate regions of the world.Calendula officinalis is a short-lived aromatic herbaceous perennial, growing to 80 cm (31 in) tall, with sparsely branched lax or erect stems. The leaves are oblong-lanceolate, 5–17 cm (2–7 in) long, hairy on both sides, and with margins entire or occasionally waved or weakly toothed. The inflorescences are yellow, comprising a thick capitulum or flowerhead 4–7 cm diameter surrounded by two rows of hairy bracts; in the wild plant they have a single ring of ray florets surrounding the central disc florets. The disc florets are tubular and hermaphrodite, and generally of a more intense orange-yellow colour than the female, tridentate, peripheral ray florets. The flowers may appear all year long where conditions are suitable. The fruit is a thorny curved achene.
