So, what is lutéines?

Lutéines, also known as lutein, are a group of naturally occurring pigments found in various plants, particularly dark green leafy vegetables. These carotenoids are responsible for the yellow, orange, and red colors in fruits and vegetables, and are known for their powerful antioxidant properties. Lutéines are believed to play a key role in maintaining eye health, as they accumulate in the retina and protect against age-related macular degeneration. Additionally, lutéines may have anti-inflammatory and cancer-fighting properties. This nutrient is commonly found in foods like spinach, kale, and eggs, and can also be taken as a dietary supplement.
