About lutein, zeaxanthin and spinach.

Spinach is a leafy green-coloured vegetable that originated in Persia. 

It belongs to the amaranth family and is closely related to quinoa and beets. It is considered very healthy because it is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients.

Spinach can be found in three major types – savoy, semi-savoy, and flat-leafed. These varieties can be further categorized into many other types that grow best in varying temperature conditions and seasons.

Antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin are found in abundance in almost all varieties of spinach and this helps to protect your eyes from cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, and other eye problems.
