Table of contents
Lutein + Zeaxanthin 20mg/1mg by EssentialSeries is a food supplement in vegetable capsules made from Tagetes erecta flower extract with a high content of xanthophylls such as Lutein and Zeaxanthin.
Lutein is a xanthophyll and one of more than 600 known carotenoids occurring in nature. Lutein is synthesised only by plants, and like other xanthophylls is found in relatively large amounts in green leafy vegetables (DrugBank, n.d.).
Our Lutein + Zeaxanthin is made from an herbal extract and its capsules are manufactured using a non-animal cellulose derivative, consequently:
This product is 100% suitable for use by vegetarians and vegans.
Because the Tagetes erecta plant contributes to the improvement of visual acuity.
Lutein is a carotenoid that is naturally present predominantly in green leafy vegetables such as kale and spinach, so obtaining it from herbal extracts is possible.
However, many companies resort to chemically synthesised sources in order to reduce production costs.
Not in HSN!
We have used the flower petals of the Tagete plant, one of nature's most important sources of lutein. For this purpose:
We have used a 25:1 of Tagetes erecta extract.
With a standardised content of active ingredients:
- 10% Lutein.
- 0.5% Zeaxanthin.
This ensures you get a highly concentrated extract in small capsules.
As Lutein + Zeaxanthin is obtained from an herbal extract, the raw product is vegan.
Many food supplement companies market products in capsules which, although the raw material may be suitable for vegetarians and vegans, the product is rendered unsuitable by the use of gelatine as a coating agent for the capsules.
In HSN we want all our products to be suitable for vegan diets and therefore we use a vegetable glazing agent:
This makes Lutein + Zeaxanthin 20mg/1mg a food supplement completely suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Take two capsules, once a day, with a meal.
Because of the lipophilic profile of carotenoids, it is preferable to consume the food supplement in a high-fat meal.
It goes great with other products containing carotenoids such as:
