FloraGLO Lutein is the Most Recommended Lutein Ingredient by Doctors

12 Nov 2009 --- The NDTI is an ongoing compilation of statistical information about the patterns and treatment of disease encountered by office-based physicians in the continental United States.

12 Nov 2009 --- FloraGLO Lutein is the preferred brand of lutein used in doctor-recommended eye health supplements, according to the National Disease and Therapeutic Index (NDTI) syndicated report (August 2008-August 2009, US Data).

The NDTI is an ongoing compilation of statistical information about the patterns and treatment of disease encountered by office-based physicians in the continental United States.  The study shows that physicians who recommend a dietary supplement with lutein for eye health, recommended supplements containing FloraGLO Lutein over other supplements.  NDTI panel physicians reside and practice within the continental U.S. and members are office-based physicians in private practice.

“This study further supports the efficacy and superior value FloraGLO Lutein provides its customers,” says Andrew Martin, vice president of global marketing for Kemin Health.  “It really validates the product’s ability to improve eye health as well as provide our customers with an unmatched promotional advantage other brands can’t offer.”

FloraGLO is the world's first patented, purified lutein (www.floraglolutein.com) used by leading supplement and food manufacturers worldwide.  FloraGLO Lutein is covered by several process and composition patents in a number of geographies worldwide.  FloraGLO has GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status for several food and beverage applications, and different product forms are available for inclusion into a variety of supplements and foods.

In 2008, Kemin and DSM joined forces working under an exclusive strategic alliance.  Kemin supplies FloraGLO brand lutein exclusively through DSM, and DSM globally commercializes FloraGLO brand lutein products through distributors and directly to customers.  Customers and consumers benefit from the synergies achieved by the collaboration through DSM's global reach, unique formulation technology and broad product portfolio when combined with Kemin's lutein knowledge, intellectual property, technical know-how and market development expertise.
