What is Lutein?
Lutein is an organic yellow pigment that is exclusively created by plants. It is found in high quantities in green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale, and yellow carrots. Animals obtain lutein either directly or indirectly from plants. Egg yolks, animal fat, and the macula of the eye all contain the pigment- causing their yellow hue. Animals use it as an antioxidant and light absorber.
