AOR Lutein Wildcrafted
Lutein protects the eyes against oxidative stress; conditions associated with sunlight damage, such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, improves macular pigment optical density and helps to reduce the risk of developing cataracts.*
AOR’s Lutein is wild crafted from drought-and-heat-tolerant marigold. Wildcrafted, as the name implies, are plants that grow in the wild. They are not farmed or otherwise manipulated with extra watering or fertiliser, but must endure drought, flood, insect and animal predation, and compete with weeds. Unlike commercially or organically grown plants, wildcrafted plants are completely on their own. As is the case with humans, a certain amount of stress is beneficial. Wildcrafted plants have developed strategies to fight off insects, handle changing environmental conditions and sequester vital nutrients and enzymes to help ensure their own survival. Once harvested, they typically offer more in terms of health benefits and nutrients.*
