Lutein & Zeaxanthin
Lutein & Zeaxanthin is extract from marigold flower(Origined in Shandong, China)
Lutein (LOO-teen) and zeaxanthin are important nutrients found in green leafy vegetables and various yellow to orange-colored fruits and flowers. Lutein is also found in significant quantities in the yolk of the egg, and in corn. One of the richest sources of lutein and zeaxanthin in nature ismarigold flowers.
Many studies have shown that lutein and zeaxanthin reduce the risk of chronic eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
The highest concentration is found in the macular area of the retina. They are also present in the lens
Lutein Powder: 5-40% UV & HPLC
Zeaxanthine Powder: 5-40% UV & HPLC
Lutein 2-5% UV powder use for Animal Feed Additive
Feed grade lutein powder is mainly used for adding color to the surface of the chicken, fat, tibia and egg yolk.
Feed-grade lutein powder is a pure natural feed additive obtained from saponification of lutein resin taken from the marigold and then add a mixture of carrier.
Application: feed additive, mainly used for adding color to the surface of the chicken, fat, tibia and egg yolk.
Recommending dosages: Adding 1--3 KG lutein to one metric ton feed or according to customers’ requirements.

Good nutrition is important to keep your eyes healthy and functioning their best throughout your lifetime. Two very important eye nutrients that may reduce your risk for macular degeneration andcataracts have names you may not be familiar with: lutein (LOO-teen) and zeaxanthin (zee-ah-ZAN-thin).
Lutein and zeaxanthin are two types of carotenoids (kuh-RAH-teh-noids), which are yellow to red pigments found widely in vegetables and other plants. Though lutein is considered a yellow pigment, in high concentrations it appears orange-red.
In nature, lutein and zeaxanthin appear to absorb excess light energy to prevent damage to plants from too much sunlight, especially from high-energy light rays called blue light.
It is believed that lutein, zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin in the macula block blue light from reaching the underlying structures in the retina, thereby reducing the risk of light-induced oxidative damage that could lead to macular degeneration (AMD).
