Prostate & Breat Cancer Prevention

Lutein, one of the two pigments in the human body, is found only in the central part of the retina called the macula. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in people over 55. Studies show that Lutein’s antioxidant properties may help protect the macula from light-induced free radicals. Lutein is not made in the body and can only be obtained from supplemental or dietary sources. Also useful for prostate protection.
