What is Lutein?

Lutein is one of the most common representatives of carotenoids. These belong to the phytochemicals and are known for their antioxidant properties. The word lutein comes from the Latin word luteus and describes an orange-yellow color. In the plant world, lutein is especially found in yellow and green plants, such as kale and spinach. The greener a plant is, the more lutein it contains, as a rule of thumb. But it can be also present in the petals of the African marigold (Tagetes erecta). Animal organisms, on the contrary, cannot produce lutein themselves, but have to take it in with food. The macula of the eye contains lutein, in reptiles and birds as well as in the egg yolk, which gives the yellow to orange color.

Of plant origin

The biosynthesis of lutein occurs only in plants, the human body cannot produce it. The rule of thumb is that the greener a plant is, the more lutein it contains. Nevertheless, there is so much lutein in the bright flowering of the African marigold that it is ideal for medical and commercial purposes. The carotenoid colours the petals orange to red. They contain up to 0.85% lutein; by comparison, for example, only about 0.025% lutein is found in kale. Therefore, the lutein that is extracted from the marigold is used in its pure crystal form in food and medicines.


Lutein is a sensitive substance that easily reacts to light. It is not heat resistant and gets oxidised in contact with air. In this way, the substance is undergoing decomposition and loses its effect. Therefore, it is necessary to stabilise the golden yellow crystals. ZeinPharma uses the microencapsulation process for this purpose. Cellulose capsules surround the powdered lutein and immobilise it. Therefore, it is protected from oxidation and decay; Heat, oxygen and light can not affect its quality now. Only in the digestive tract, the capsules dissolve and release the substance, so that your body can take it unhindered.


Each capsule contains 20 mg of pure lutein. The well-digestible capsules are easy to swallow and contain the recommended daily allowance. In order to absorb this amount of lutein daily with the food, you would have to eat a large abundance of as dark as possible, green vegetables day after day. In everyday life, it is much easier to simply take a single capsule daily and in order to reach the daily dose. In order to make it easier for you to receive lutein, it is therefore highly-dosed. This high dosage is only possible because, with the lutein capsules, you do not take any other additives that would stretch the powder and make the consumption of more capsules necessary.

Without additives

The manufacturer renounces both additives and auxiliaries. This happens very consciously, because you should give your body lutein in its absolute pure form. Thanks to the microencapsulation, the crystals are resistant to disturbing and damaging external influences; therefore, further aids are not necessary. Additives, that you often find in supplements, have been also renounced, since your body can absorb well the lutein in its pure form. For these reasons, the lutein 20 mg capsules provide you exclusively with the extract of the African marigold in its original crystalline form.
