Lutein is an antioxidant carotenoid that occurs in nature, such as dark green leafy vegetables, with zeaxanthin, a closely related carotenoid. Lutein and zeaxanthin concentrate in the eye’s macula and lens, as well as in the skin, breast and cervical tissues. Both lutein and zeaxanthin protect the macula from the degradation normally associated with aging and oxidative stress. The macula is responsible for focus and color differentiation. While the average American intake of lutein is only 2 mg per day, other population groups consume from 6 to 20 mg per day.
LuteinSorb is a patent-pending delivery of free lutein as a dispersion of lutein laid onto a hydrophilic carrier consisting of marigold (Tagetes species) fractions - all materials GMO-free. It combines lutein with both zeaxanthin isomers (3R, 3'R zeaxanthin and meso-zeaxanthin) in a balance of all three macular carotenoids to support superior eye health.

Taking this has made my eyes feel so much better. No more waking up with gritty eyes. Now my eyes feel great in the morning and when I put my lenses in they feel like pools of cool liquid, rather than the burning coals they have been lately. I can work on the computer for hours without strain AND I have not used my reading glasses in ten days (when I realised this, I immediately sat down to write this review). So for me, this has been somewhat of a miracle. It worked pretty much immediately, so I would say if you are suffering from tired, dry, sore eyes, give it a go. I also take Jarrows Carotenall every other day. But through process of elimination, this is the one doing the work.
Although this is supposedly more effective than the regular lutein Jarrow sells, I found it even less effective than the regular kind. If I take two of the regular capsules, it is far more effective than these pills, even though these should be much more effective.
