Novopure Lutein Esters is a rich and safe source of lutein to the human body. Lutein supplementation is necessary for the human body because the human body does not produce lutein and its intake is through dietary sources only. Health benefits of lutein supplementation as indicated by studies are given below:
(i) It improves eye function and slows progression of Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD), cataract and glaucoma

Novo's patented Super Critical Fluid Extraction (SCFE) process, uses CO2 under supercritical condition of pressure and temperature to dissolve lutein ester in fluid CO2. The lutein ester is then separated from fluid CO2, in its pure form, as it was in nature. The final product is stable, has a long life and is competitively priced.
