- Provides Key Antioxidant Support for Eyes
- Supports Macular Health
- Protects Macula Against Light
- Increases Ocular Circulation
Maintaining the health of the eyes and vision is a major concern for the United States population over 60. The eye is the organ most vulnerable to oxidative issues due to light, toxins (smoke), oxygen, and abrasion. When UV and blue light pass through the retina to the photoreceptors (rods and cones) and pigmented epithelial (PE) cells, this light energy is converted into a nerve impulse that generates reactive oxygen species (free radicals). Antioxidants are essential to neutralize these free radicals and prevent excessive oxidative damage to delicate eye tissues.
Emerging research highlights the importance of targeted nutritional strategies to protect the macula and enhance visual acuity. In a ten-year, clinical trial sponsored by the National Eye Institute, high levels of antioxidants, carotenoids and zinc were shown to reduce the risk of advanced age-related macular deterioration and its associated vision loss by 25%. In a five-year follow-up trial, higher intakes of lutein and zeaxanthin were shown to provide increased macula protection and reduce the advancement of age-related macular deterioration by an additional 20%.
