LUTEIN (MARIGOLD EXTRACT)
Ultimate pm - 10mg
Lutein is a xanthophyll, or naturally occurring carotenoid, found in high quantities in the Marigold Flower.
HOW IT WORKS
Lutein is an essential component of the eye (e.g. lens/macula), but research has shown that it is also present in the skin, and is responsible for protection against UV induced damage caused by sunlight. Recent clinical studies have demonstrated that lutein is able to block melanin pathways, down regulate cytokines, and promote antioxidants, which promotes tone/texture improvements and improves skin appearance.

RESEARCH &CLINICAL STUDIES
"Overall skin tone and skin-lightening-improving effects with oral supplementation of lutein and zeaxanthin isomers: a double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial"
Overall skin tone was significantly improved in the L/Zi group compared to placebo (P<0.0237), and luminance (L*) values were significantly increased in the L/Zi group. Mean minimal erythemal dose was increased with L/Zi supplementation after 12 weeks of supplementation.
"Effects of a Lutein and Zeaxanthin Intervention on Cognitive Function: A Randomized, Double-Masked, Placebo-Controlled Trial of Younger Healthy Adults"
Supplementation with L + Z improves CNS xanthophyll levels and cognitive function in young, healthy adults. Magnitudes of effects are similar to previous work reporting correlations between MPOD and cognition in other populations.
"Lutein and Zeaxanthin Isomers Effect on Sleep Quality: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial"
The results of the current study show that supplementation with L/Zi had a significant effect on sleep disturbance, daytime dysfunction, medication requirement for sleep, and quality of sleep.
