Pharmaceutical Highest Quality Lutein.
Note: Many lutein supplements that claim to have 6 mg of lutein per capsule may use an herbal extract that has 5% lutein. For instance, common supplements of lutein 6 mg are derived from 120mg of 5% marigold extract. Our lutein supplement comes from a marigold extract that is more than 94 percent lutein, not 5 %.
Lutein is a carotenoid found in abundance in fruits and green leafy vegetables. Dr. Ray Sahelian, M.D. says, "I have personally taken this lutein supplement and have noticed clear benefits. This lutein supplement is top quality. Do you want to improve your vision, see clearer, improve color perception along with distance and close vision improvement? For those who wish to improve their vision with a combination formula, Eyesight Rx with lutein and zeaxanthin is an exceptional product." It is a revolutionary new product with lutein and zeaxanthin along with additional carotenoids, flavonoids, eyebright, goji extract, ginkgo, lipoic acid, carnosine, alpha lipoic acid, and several other herbs and nutrients. You are likely to notice improved vision within days.
Lutein is one of the dominant pigments found in the macular region of the retina. The retina is unique in the human body in containing three carotenoids; 3R,3'R-zeaxanthin, meso-zeaxanthin and lutein. Humans consume 1 to 3 mg lutein per day and the lutein:zeaxanthin ratio in the diet is about 5:1.
Lutein in this product is extracted from the marigold flower.

Q. Can I take a lutein supplement and Eyesight Rx the same day?
A. Since both of these supplements are potent, we suggest not using them the same day. You could alternate their use, and it is a good idea to take a day off a week. Your vision may not be as sharp if you take too high doses of lutein or Eyesight Rx compared to lower amounts. Each person is unique on the ideal dosage that works for them, and you will find, after a few days or weeks of taking these supplements, the ideal amount and frequency that works for you.
Q. What is the ideal lutein dosage to take on a daily basis?
A. This is a good question and modern medicine does not have an answer yet. Much depends on one's diet. Some people have excellent diets with a large amount of fresh fruits and vegetables and thus would not need any lutein supplement at all, whereas others would benefit from a lutein supplement a few days a week.
Q. What is your opinion on taking a lutein 20 mg or 40 mg capsule daily?
A. We spoke with Dr. Ray Sahelian and he says It is possible that too high an amount of lutein ingestion, such as lutien 20 or 40 mg, may shift the delicate balance of carotenoids in the retina and fovea centralis, and thus interfere with optimal vision. We prefer using smaller amounts.
Q. Your lutein supplement dosage recommendations appear to be reasonable. However, I have come a product that has 100 mg lutein per capsule. They claim that people need 2 mg of lutein per kg of body weight.
A. High dosages of lutein may disrupt the balance of nutrients in the eye and cause blurriness. Our medical adviser, Dr. Sahelian, does not believe it is necessary to ingest more than 20 or 30 mg of lutein per week. 100 mg per day is quite excessive.
Q. I am vegetarian and I see this product has gelatin forming the capsule. Can I open the capsule and mix the contents in food?
A. Yes, that is fine.
Lutein and Eyesight Rx
If you buy this lutein zeaxanthin supplement along with Eyesight Rx eye formula, we suggest not taking the lutein and the eye formula the same day. Use Eyesight Rx three or four days a week and use the lutein supplement once or twice a week.
Lutein Bilberry extract combination
If you buy lutein and bilberry extract supplements, take them separately at first for about a week before combining. If you do combine lutein and bilberry, use half the dosage of each.
Most lutein supplements come in 6, 10 mg and 20 mg dosages. The ideal daily intake of lutein from food for optimal vision and healthy eyes is still being researched. Your daily dosage may depend on your dietary intake. On average, most people will do fine taking about 20 to 30 mg per week.
Lutein side effects
No major lutein side effects have been reported in the medical literature. It is possible that if too high a dosage is taken that the balance in the retina may be shifted and vision may not be as sharp. Therefore, taking a high dosage of lutein supplements every day may not lead to the best visual enhancement. By trial and error you will find the ideal dosage that works for you while minimizing adverse effects.
