In brief: None
Lutein supplements are given as an adjunct for the support of the health of the macula.
This is largely theoretical but there is a large nih study underway currently to study this particular substance. Since the fda does not regulate health store supplements, if you feel lutein is of value, get them from a source from a major pharmaceutical company like alcon or bausch and lom.
