Twinlab Lutein 6000 mcg. - 100 Capsules
Twinlab Lutein 6000 mcg. is the most abundant carotenoid found in fruits and vegetables, and is especially concentrated in the macula of the eye. Lutein is an antioxidant in the carotenoid family (a group of naturally occurring fat-soluble pigments found in plants). Lutein is the primary carotenoid present in the central area of the retina called the macula. Spinach, kale, collard greens, romaine lettuce, leeks, peas, and egg yolks are good sources of lutein.
Twinlab was created in 1968 when founder David Blechman leveraged his 20 years of expertise in the pharmaceutical industry to develop and market a liquid protein supplement. Working out of his family’s garage, he and his wife named their developing business Twinlab, after the couple’s two sets of twins. Sales soared, and in the 1980s, Twinlab branched out to a broader range of vitamins, minerals, herbs and teas.
In late 2003, ISI Brands Inc. acquired the Twinlab brand. Their mission is to combine a complete range of dietary supplements with knowledge from foremost experts in the nutrition field to help people of all ages lead happier, healthier lives.
Their brands include some of the most recognizable and trusted in the industry: Twinlab, Metabolife, Nature’s Herbs, Alvita Teas, and Cole Water. They also provide private label and contract manufacturing expertise to some of the world’s largest retailers.
They are a proud member of the local business community in American Fork, Utah, where they have located the 170,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing facility from which they manufacture, package and distribute over 1,000 premium quality capsule, tablet, powder, liquid, herbal and tea products. They also maintain corporate offices in New York, NY and Grand Rapids, MI, as well as an aquifer and water bottling facility in Peru, IN.
