Q. Where is a good place to store my gummy vitamins?
A. Gelatin based products are likely to melt in the heat. The gelatin based gummy product in your bottle will become overly sticky and melt if subjected to temperatures over 75° F for 4 hours or longer. It is best not to store your vitamins:
- In your car for any extended period of time, as your car can reach temperatures over 120° F
- On top of your refrigerator
- In cabinets above a stove or sink, where heat and steam could create moisture
- In your windowsill as it can raise the surface temperature of a bottle to 150° F
- Near a furnace or a heater
- Near hot water heaters, air radiators, hot water pipes or steam pipes
Try to store vitamins in a cool, dry place away from windows and storage rooms affected by outdoor weather.

Q. How do I know if I'm getting enough Lutein in my diet?
A. Over 40% of all Americans aren't getting enough lutein. You can find out if you are with a simple test using something called an MPOD device. MPOD, or macular pigment optical density, is the measure of lutein in your eyes. Ask your eye doctor about checking your MPOD level.
Q. How much Lutein do I need each day?
A. New clinical research shows that you should get at least 10 mg of lutein each day to support your eyes and keep them healthy. Your body can’t produce lutein, so you have to replenish your lutein levels through diet and supplementation1,2.
Q. What are the benefits of Lutein?
A. Lutein improves your visual performance by promoting sharper vision in low-light conditions, and helps you tolerate and recover more quickly from glaring light. It also helps reduce the risk of certain age-related eye conditions.
