We all know that we need to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables for a healthy diet yet fresh fruits and vegetables have become increasingly expensive since 2010?
Unless you live in Australia or New Zealand, it is super expensive to eat asparagus, avocados and blueberries.
Furthermore, intensive high-technology farming practices have greatly reduced the amount of nutrients we get from fresh foods:
Lutein, zeaxanthin, lycopene, alpha-carotene, beta-carotene in fruits and vegetables
When you take 3 soft gel capsules of Super Lutein, you get the nutritional benefits of:
– FOUR servings of fruits and
– FIVE servings of vegetables from 6 colours of fruits and vegetables.
Lutein is a phytonutrient (plant-based nutrient) that helps in
- protecting our eyes,
- boost immunity and
- supports healthy skin, tissues and blood.

Have you been applying Vitamin E oils, creams or lotions for scar prevention or treatment?
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble nutrient found in many foods. In the body, it acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun.
The body also needs vitamin E to boost its immune system so that it can fight off invading bacteria and viruses. It also helps to widen blood vessels and keep blood from clotting within them. In addition, cells use vitamin E to interact with each other and to carry out many important functions.
The amount of vitamin E you need each day depends on your age. Average daily recommended intakes are listed below in milligrams (mg) and in International Units (IU). Package labels list the amount of vitamin E in foods and dietary supplements in IU.
Life Stage | Recommended Amount
Birth to 6 months 4 mg (6 IU)
Infants 7–12 months 5 mg (7.5 IU)
Children 1–3 years 6 mg (9 IU)
Children 4–8 years 7 mg (10.4 IU)
Children 9–13 years 11 mg (16.4 IU)
Teens 14–18 years 15 mg (22.4 IU)
Adults 15 mg (22.4 IU)
Pregnant teens and women 15 mg (22.4 IU)
Breastfeeding teens and women 19 mg (28.4 IU)
Vitamin E is found naturally in foods and is added to some fortified foods.
Nuts (such as peanuts, hazelnuts, and, especially, almonds) and seeds (like sunflower seeds) are also among the best sources of vitamin E.
Green vegetables, such as spinach and broccoli, provide some vitamin E.
#Vegetable oils like wheat germ, sunflower, and safflower oils are among the best sources of vitamin E. Corn and soybean oils also provide some vitamin E.
#Food companies add vitamin E to some breakfast cereals, fruit juices, margarines and spreads, and other foods. To find out which ones have vitamin E, check the product labels.
Vitamin E needs some fat for the digestive system to absorb it.
Vitamin E deficiency can cause nerve and muscle damage that results in loss of feeling in the arms and legs, loss of body movement control, muscle weakness, and vision problems.
Another sign of deficiency is a weakened immune system.
