Best Free Lutein featuring FloraGLO contains high quality FloraGLO Lutein, a highly bioavailable, natural source of lutein extracted from marigold flowers, the most abundant source in nature. FloraGLO Lutein is manufactured under a patented process (US patents 5,382,714 and 5,648,564).
Lutein is a major carotenoid found in human blood, with a high tissue concentration in the retina of the human eye. Lutein functions as a potent free radical scavenger in a number of tissues, including the eyes, skin, heart and lungs. Zeaxanthin is the second major carotenoid found in the retina. Both lutein and zeaxanthin work synergistically to promote eye health.

Best Free Lutein features FloraGLO, a purified free lutein manufactured according to a patented process that ensures a standardized and potent end product every time. FloraGLO is the exact same lutein molecule found naturally in foods such as spinach, collards, kale, and certain yellow-orange fruits and vegetables. The average American consumes only 2mg per day of lutein and zeaxanthin.1Since the human body does not synthesize these carotenoids, we rely on food and dietary supplements if we wish to boost our tissue levels of these helpful compounds.
Over 20 studies have been completed in humans using FloraGLO Lutein, establishing a body of literature published in peer-reviewed journals or presented as abstracts at scientific conferences that confirms the efficacy and safety of this particular ingredient. Additionally, in vitro studies have pointed to multiple mechanisms by which FloraGLO confers benefit to eyes, skin, and overall health. No toxicological side effects were seen in clinical FloraGLO studies, providing particular confidence in this brand of lutein.
The impact of lutein supplementation is clear to see. In a 9-month randomized, placebo-controlled study of 40 subjects, daily supplementation was administered at a dose of 10mg of lutein and 2mg of zeaxanthin. A two-fold to three-fold increase in blood levels of lutein and zeaxanthin was seen at 6 months; after supplementation was stopped, the levels returned to baseline within 3 months.2
