FloraGLO lutein gives food, beverage, and dietary supplement manufacturers new profit opportunities in the “beauty from within” market

(October 12, 2009, Parsippany, NJ) Recent scientific research reveals that FloraGLO® Lutein can help satisfy the growing desire of millions of consumers to maintain their youthful appearance with the aid of effective “Beauty from Within” skin health solutions.

More and more consumers understand that skin health is highly dependent on the nutrients they ingest. This includes carotenoids found in carrots, pumpkin, and green leafy vegetables, which can be part of a healthy diet and taken in the form of functional foods and beverages and dietary supplements.

FloraGLO® Lutein is a carotenoid that clinical studies have shown to be effective in providing the skin with protection from the damaging effects of sunlight, which is a major cause of premature skin aging.

Research also indicates that FloraGLO® Lutein offers important skin protection from harmful oxidative stress, which can result from sunlight exposure and the cumulative effects of natural aging, the pressures of everyday living, smoking, air pollution and an unbalanced diet. In addition, a recent clinical study shows that oral supplementation with FloraGLO® Lutein significantly increases skin hydration and elasticity.

Available in multiple product forms for various applications, FloraGLO® Lutein offers food, beverage, and dietary supplement manufacturers vital new profit opportunities in the fast-growing “Beauty from Within” market. It also provides manufacturers with the opportunity to partner with DSM Nutritional Products, whose vast ingredients portfolio, breakthrough technology, and comprehensive support have made it a global leader in the “Beauty from Within” market.
