FloraGLO® Lutein is naturally-sourced, unesterified lutein with an established reputation for quality, safety and efficacy, and the first lutein brand introduced into the global marketplace. Over the past 25 years, FloraGLO revolutionized the supplemental lutein market and provided the foundation for the development and advancement of lutein for human health. At the time of its introduction, researchers were just beginning to recognize that lutein and zeaxanthin, two dietary carotenoids found to selectively accumulate in the retina, played an important role in protecting human vision. At about the same time, Kemin also recognized that supplemental lutein provided a significant opportunity to fill the dietary gap that continues to exist due to low fruit and vegetable intakes1, and more importantly, confirm the hypothesis that supplemental lutein is important for vision and other aspects of human health.
Kemin uses only the best growing and harvesting practices to cultivate its elite dietary ingredients. Our proprietary lutein manufacturing process has been developed and refined over the last 25 years.
Our marigold flowers are grown in India, meticulously handpicked, and extracted resulting in marigold oleoresin which is shipped to Kemin headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa where it is further processes into unesterified (free) FloraGLO Lutein. Each step of the manufacturing process is carefully controlled to ensure a quality naturally-sourced lutein.
FloraGLO Lutein is clinically-tested to increase and maintain MPOD (the measurement of macular pigment density in the macula.) FloraGLO Lutein is the same free-form found in common fruits and vegetables. Because it is free form, it is more easily absorbed by the body.
FloraGLO Lutein in powder form is produced with DSM’s Actilease ® microencapsulation technology, a proprietary process that combines superior bioavailabity, excellent stability and very low extrusion losses - providing lower overages and smaller tablets.
Researchers, eye care professionals and leading supplement manufacturers from around the globe rely on the consistent quality, safety and proven efficacy profile of FloraGLO Lutein.
Recommended use: a dose of = 10 mg FloraGLO® Lutein and 2 mg OPTISHARP™ Natural Zeaxanthin is considered efficacious.
