These Beta Carotene + Lutein capsules have been formulated to help support optimal vision and eye health, plus assist in the prevention of age-related eye problems and eye strain. Beta Carotene is a natural source of vitamin A which is a powerful antioxidant that is essential for skin tissue and maintenance. Lutein has been proven to be a very important nutrient for the health of the eyes, especially in the elderly and those with degenerative eye conditions or cataracts.
Diet can play a role in good eye health. Studies suggest that diet is important in reducing the risk of Macular Degeneration (MD) and in slowing its progression. Eating a healthy well-balanced diet, high in antioxidants, vitamins and other nutrients can help keep our eyes healthy. If you are concerned you are not getting enough nutrients in your diet, you may consider using Eye Care Formula capsules that contain lutein. Lutein is a particularly important antioxidant for eye health and is found in high concentrations in the macula of the human eye. Lutein is found in dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, silver beet and turnip greens as well as naturally yellow fruit and vegetables such as sweet corn and capsicum.
Research suggests that eating fish 2-3 times a week can reduce your risk, and may help slow down the progression of Macular Degeneration.
If your eyes become tired or strained from work, driving or from constantly wearing contact lenses, Blueberry Extract offers excellent, natural relief.
The active ingredient, anthocyanins, decrease the permeability of the blood vessels and improves the light gathering capabilities of the eye. Used in conjunction with our Eye Care Formula, together they provide natural support against age-related eye problems and eye strain.
Blueberries have also been shown to enhance cognitive function due to their unique ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Blueberries target the area of the brain associated with learning and memory, and they protect neurons by absorbing free radicals that limit the activity of neurotransmitters and electrical impulses necessary for optimal brain function.
