S. LUTEIN is a nutritional supplement containing 6 types of carotenoids.
Lutein, a pigment (carotenoid) found in fruits and vegetables, is known for being abundantly contained in kale, a vegetable made famous as the main ingredient of aojiru, or green juice. Spinach and broccoli are also sources of lutein. Carotenoids are pigments, available in a variety of bright colours such as yellow, red, purple, and orange, and are necessary for photosynthesis in plants. Several hundred kinds of carotenoids have been found in plants, among which, about 50 types are present in edible fruits and vegetables.
S. LUTEIN is formulated with lutein, lycopene—found in tomatoes, zeaxanthin—found in maize and egg yolk, as well as α- and β-carotene—found in the orange-coloured pigments of carrots and pumpkins. It is ideal for those with insufficient vegetable intake, providing benefits comparable to those from eating red, yellow, orange and dark green leafy vegetables.
