What is lutein?Where does Lutein origin from?
The names of both of these yellow colored phytonutrients reflect their natural hue with lutein being derived from the Latin word luteus meaning golden yellow while zea refers to the corn genus and xantho- is derived from a Greek word that means yellow. While these carotenoids both have yellow pigments, they are found concentrated in foods of others colors, notably leafy green vegetables, since these foods also feature a host of other phytonutrients pigments in addition to lutein and zeaxanthin.
Lutein is a yellow plant pigment in the carotenoid family. Yellow and orange vegetables have only trace amounts of lutein; large amounts are found in green vegetables like broccoli, collard greens, kale, and spinach. Lutein is also available as a supplement made from marigold flowers. Lutein is part of the zanthophyll(Zanthophyll family of pigments, which also includes astaxanthin and canthaxanthin). Because they do not have the pro-vitamin A activity of beta carotene, these "other" carotenoids have been over-looked until recently.
Lutein as cancer inhibitor and Lutein as inhibitor of tumor:
Lutein consumption has also been associated with reduced risk of heart disease and cancer of the cervix, breast and lungs possibly due to its anti-oxidant ability and concentration of these carotenoids in these body tissues, even during diseased states.
A recent study by Tufts University and Korean investigators revealed a dramatic 88% drop in breast cancer in women who had the highest blood concentrations of lutein.
