Lutein Fortified Milk

 In Uncategorized

Researchers from Madrid’s Hospital Universitario Puerta de Hierro report that fortifying fermented milk with lutein may have health benefits, including eye health, according to results of a human study published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry. Lutein, a nutrient found in various foods including green leafy vegetables and egg yolk, has a history in the dietary supplement market as a nutrient to reduce the risk of age related macular degeneration (AMD). The study looked at a new delivery method for the nutrient. Twenty-four volunteers were recruited to consume the fortified fermented milk at a low and high lutein doses over 14 days. The results of the study showed the higher the dose of lutein, the greater the blood level of lutein.*

Lutein can be found in Viteyes AREDS Formula Plus Lutein, Viteyes AREDS Advanced, Viteyes Plus Lutein Beta-Carotene Free, Viteyes Advanced Beta-Carotene Free, Viteyes Essentials and Viteyes Complete.
