Lutein: See information on macular degeneration and lutein - http://www.Areds2.Org/ lutein is synthesized only by plants and like other xanthophylls is found in high quantities in green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and yellow carrots. Lutein was found to be concentrated in the macula, a small area of the retina responsible for central vision and helps keep the eyes safe from oxidative stress.
