Lutein Esters
   
 
Lutein is a yellow-to-orange pigment or phytochemical found mostly in plants. It works as an antioxidant in your body to reduce the damage done by free radicals. Lutein is a carotenoid and is related to vitamin A. Other carotenoids include beta carotene, alpha carotene and zeaxanthin.

Lutein is concentrated in the retinas of your eyes, so it's a necessary component of normal vision. Eating a diet with lots of colorful fruits and vegetables that contain lutein may also decrease your risk of cardiovascular disease. One study in Los Angeles found that people who had higher levels of lutein and other antioxidants in their blood also had healthier blood vessels. Of course, there are other healthy lifestyle factors that go along with eating a lutein-rich diet, so it's difficult to know how much (if any) of the effect was due to lutein alone.

 
  • It is an antioxidant so it eliminates free radicals from the body.
