    Carlson Labs Lutein 15 mg + Kale - 60 Capsules

    Carlson Labs Lutein and Kale helps to promote and maintain healthy vision. Lutein is a carotenoid found in a variety of plants, especially kale. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found within tissues surrounding the macula of the eye - an area vital to sharp vision. Carlson Labs Lutein plus Kale provides lutein, with naturally occurring zeaxanthin, in a base of 260 mg of Kale.

    Lutein, a pigment, is a vital component of our retina. It helps protect the retina from the effects of UV light and free radicals. Lutein can be found naturally in fruits and vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, green beans, sweet potatoes, squash, red grapes, oranges, kiwi and mangoes.

    Zeaxanthin, another pigment, works closely with lutein to help protect the macula area of the retina from the effects of UV light and free radicals. Zeaxanthin may also help to maintain lens clarity. Yellow corn, honeydew melon, squash, oranges, mango, kale, apricots, peaches and orange bell peppers are dietary sources of zeaxanthin.

    Carlson Labs Excipients

    • Binder: Holds the ingredients in a tablet together. One of three types of binders are used as required: Plant fiber known as cellulose, acacia gum from the stem of the Acacia tree or brazil wax from the leaves of a palm tree.
    • Filler: Fills out the size and shape of a tablet or capsule making it practical to produce and convenient for the consumer to use. Plant cellulose (pure plant filler) is the filler of choice in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules. Soybean or safflower oil is used in soft gelatin capsules.
    • Disintegrant: Expands when wet causing the tablet to break apart in the digestive tract releasing the nutrients for absorption. We prefer to use plant cellulose as a disintegrant.
    • Lubricant: Prevents ingredients from clumping together and from sticking to the tablet punches or capsule filler. Common minerals, silica, and forms of vegetable oils known as vegetable stearin, magnesium stearate or stearic acid are the most often used lubricants in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules.
    • Coating: Protects tablet ingredients from deterioration by moisture in the air and makes large tablets easier to swallow. For most coated tablets, a cellulose (plant fiber) film coating is used which is free of sugar and potential allergy-causing substances. Occasionally, other coating materials are used such as corn protein (zein) or an extraction from trees (pharmaceutical glaze).
    • Sweeteners: Added to make the nutrients more palatable only in chewable tablets or liquids. Sweeteners found naturally in fruits such as fructose and sorbitol are chosen. More information on fructose and sorbitol can be sent to you upon request.
    • Flavors and Colors: Added to improve the taste or appearance of a formulation. We use flavors and colors only when necessary and choose the natural ones.

    Vitamins
    Vitamins are organic compounds that are necessary for normal growth and maintenance of life. As we are unable to synthesize vitamins, we must rely on foods and food supplements to maintain adequate amounts in our body.

    Thirteen essential vitamins have been isolated and these are divided into two categories, water-soluble and fat -soluble vitamins. The water-soluble vitamins include Vitamin C and the group of B-Vitamins. These water-soluble are not stored by the body and can be readily depleted. The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E remain in the body for longer periods of time.

    Minerals
    Although minerals make up only a small fraction of total body weight (4-5%), they are essential for human metabolism. Minerals act as the catalysts for many biochemical reactions within the human body. They are involved in responses of the nervous system and muscles, the absorption and secretions of the body's fluids, and maintain a delicate water balance within the body. The bones and teeth of our body have high mineral contents which accounts for their hardness and rigidity. Minerals, like vitamins, must also be supplied by dietary means as we are unable to synthesize them in our body.
