At Inca Health we manufacture natural botanical extracts from herbs found in the Peruvian Rainforest and Andes Mountains.

Everyday people are discovering the benefits of Lutein. A natural antioxidant in their diets to maintain better health; in particular, people concerned with age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness in the industrialized world. As we age, the macula becomes scarred from damage caused by exposure to ultra violet light. More recently, scientific studies indicate that Lutein or Lutea may also reduce the risk of other major chronic diseases such as breast cancer, skin cancer and cataracts. Lutein is the most abundant carotenoid. It is present in green vegetables, such as spinach, kale, broccoli, brussels sprouts and certain fruits.

Lutein is a natural part of human diet when fruits and vegetables are consumed. For individuals lacking sufficient Lutein intake, Lutein-fortified foods are available, or in the case of elderly people with a poorly absorbing digestive system, fortification via a sublingual spray ensures maximum benefit to the eyes. As early as 1996, Lutein has been incorporated into dietary supplements. While no recommended daily allowance currently exists for Lutein as for other nutrients, positive effects have been seen at levels of 6 mg/day. The only definitive side effect of excess Lutein consumption is the same observed for carotene overdose: bronzing of the skin (carotenodermia). The normal levels of Lutein found in a daily vitamin tablet can be as low as 0.25mg. The human body cannot manufacture Lutein and therefore it must be obtained from dietary sources.
