Lutein and Lutein Esters

Lutein vs Lutein Esters

Lutein is a carotenoid, which is a vitamin that comes from plants — it functions as an essential nutrient and antioxidant in our bodies. An ester is a chemical compound derived from an acid — they are naturally occurring, and can also be produced synthetically. A lutein ester has two extra fatty acid molecules, as opposed to pure lutein.
