LUTEIN & ME Delicious taste makes it easy to continue The secret of lutein coffee

Delicious taste makes it easy to continue
The secret of lutein coffee

  1. Point1

    Delicious and easy intake of lutein with lutein coffee

    Lutein is a type of carotenoid found in marigolds and green-yellow vegetables, and is an element said to have a high antioxidative effect. Sometimes called “nature’s sunglasses,” it is known to alleviate damage from light such as blue light etc. Lutein is present in the human body originally, and is said to alleviate ultraviolet (UV) light and light emitted from displays of PCs, smart phones etc., but it tends to become deficient with the progression of age. Therefore, it is recommended to consume at least 6 mg per day. For example, 100 g of broccoli contains 1.9 mg of lutein, but it isn’t easy to consume broccoli every day. However, since lutein can’t be produced within the human body, we recommend making a conscious effort to include lutein consumption in the daily diet.

    What is the equivalent amount of vegetables required to obtain 6 mg of lutein?

    • Broccoli

      Broccoli

      Roughly1stalk

      (320g)

    • Brussels sprouts

      Brussels sprouts

      Roughly38pieces

      (460g)

    • Pumpkins

      Pumpkins

      Roughly1/3

      (500g)

    • Lettuce

      Lettuce

      Roughly1head

      (330g)

    It’s quite a challenge to consume that much in the daily diet…!
    3 cups of LUTEIN & ME coffee provide one-half of recommended daily intake.
    Please try substituting your regular coffee with LUTEIN & ME, and enjoy it as a dietary supplement.

  2. Point2

    The rich flavor of “100% Arabica” which can satisfy even discerning coffee lovers

    We performed countless sample trials with coffee professionals, and paid particular attention to the type of coffee beans. We use 100% high quality Arabica beans, which offer a gorgeous aroma and a rich body and acidity.

  3. Point3

    “Ultimate flavor” born from technology that was passed down

    LUTEIN & ME was jointly developed with a long-standing coffee maker. Traditional roasting technology that has been passed down for over a half century since founding in 1953 brings out the original flavor of coffee beans to the maximum. Through this roasting that was passed down, we created a richer and deeper taste that brings out coffee flavor to its fullest. We hope you enjoy this “ultimate flavor” as told by over 60 years of experience.

  4. Point4

    Enjoy the taste of freshly ground coffee anytime with genuine drip coffee

    This recommended drip type is for coffee lovers who want to enjoy the aroma and taste of freshly ground coffee anytime. After roasting, it is packaged in the freshest condition possible following the appropriate aging period. In this way, you can enjoy genuine coffee flavor with the convenience of instant coffee. Also, individually wrapped packs allow for easy handling. You can enjoy it anytime and anywhere you like.
