Source Naturals, Lutein, 20 mg, 60 Capsules10 Reviews
Expiration Date: Jul 2018
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Lutein is a potent antioxidant carotenoid found in abundance in fruits and green leafy vegetables. Lutein is also one of the dominant pigments found in the macular region of the retina in the eye. In the macula, lutein is selectively accumulated from plasma and filters out visible blue light. Recent studies suggest this filtering process serves to protect the retina from photic damage or other oxidative damage. Source Naturals Lutein is extracted from the marigold flower and purified by an exclusive patented process (US Patent No. 5,382,714).

iHerb Customer Reviews
This is a good clean brand of lutein. Anyone with macular degeneration or cataract needs to take between 20 - 60 mg / day. If you already have cataract I would take 20mg 3 times per day...this may help stop its progression.
My mother takes this product to help stabilise her age related macular degeneration. Although it's more expensive than the Jarrow Formulas, Lutein, she finds it easier to swallow.
