Lutein from Tagetes erecta L. is a purified extract obtained from the petals of marigold flowers with grain alcohol, which is a carotenoid and provides nutritional support for our eyes and skin - the only organs of the body directly exposed to the outside environment. Lutein has been linked to promoting healthy eyes through reducing the risk of macular degeneration, specifically its role in reducing the risk of Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). lutein also filters the high-energy, blue wavelengths of light from the visible-light spectrum by as much as 90%. Other studies suggest that lutein may provide supplemental antioxidant capacity to the skin, helping counteract free radical damage, for cardiovascular health, lutein present in blood serum may favorably impact arterial wall thickening, a component of atherosclerosis. Women's health research suggests lutein may also have a role during pregnancy and lactation.
On the other hand, since prehispanic times, this plant has been used for medicinal purposes. It has been used to treat stomach ache, parasites, diarrhea, liver illnesses, vomiting, indigestion and toothache among other illnesses.
