FloraGLO® Lutein FOR Eye Health

Your eyesight is precious and indispensable. It allows you to see your loved ones, visualize ideas and enjoy every moment to the fullest. But as you age, your visual health may naturally decline. Various eye conditions, including cataracts or age related macular degeneration (AMD) may also appear overtime due to family history or environmental factors.

FloraGLO® Lutein is a natural ingredient for vision supplements. Backed by 25 years of research, it's one of the safest, most trusted lutein brands. FloraGLO Lutein is an extract from marigold flowers, providing the same absorbable form of lutein found in common foods, such as kale, spinach, corn and peppers.

How does FloraGLO Lutein work IN THE EYE?

From Flower to Formula

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. 

Kemin’s Commitment To FloraGLO Lutein Science

FloraGLO was the first lutein brand introduced into the global marketplace and has maintained its status as the gold standard for over two decades. FloraGLO was the chosen lutein ingredient in the largest lutein supplementation trial to date, the prestigious Age-Related Eye Disease Study 2 (AREDS2) by the National Institutes of Health’s National Eye Institute.

Science backed, not borrowed

The efficacy of FloraGLO Lutein is unparalleled, as compared with other lutein brands and as demonstrated in human clinical trials time and time again. The global vitamin and dietary supplement market relies on clinical evidence in order to differentiate products in the marketplace. It's critical for manufacturers to formulate with ingredients that have clinical evidence to substantiate health benefits, which is why so many choose FloraGLO.

Superior absorption and bioavailability

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.

Not all lutein is the same 

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.
