The leading cause of blindness in adults over 40 is the degeneration of the macula of the eyes, called destroys sharp, central vision that helps you see fine details. Those at the greatest risk of experiencing macular degeneration are smokers, baby boomers, women, and those with light-coloured irises. Macular degeneration disables this retinal function, leaving only a margin of peripheral vision. A lifetime of exposure to solar light causes degeneration of the macula tissue, unless they are regularly supplied with the dietary pigment, lutein.
Lutein is a yellow-orange carotenoid that may offer significant protection against macular degeneration. Lutein and zeaxanthin are protective carotenoids that absorb harmful blue light, especially from exposure to the sun. These pigments are able to absorb harmful blue light and reduce damage due to sun exposure. Lutein may also help prevent vision becomes cloudy, caused by solar damage to the lens.
Our most potent Lutein supplement contains 20 mg plus Zeaxanthin making it a valuable ally for healthy vision. Also, Bioflavonoid constituents from bilberry are associated with improved blood circulation to the retina (enhances lutein delivery to the macula), strengthening of the fine capillaries of the retina, and potent antioxidant protection of the retina. Lutein with Bilberry Extract, and multi-anthocyanidins is potent natural vision support.
The importance of keeping your eyes and your eyesight healthy cannot be overstated, especially as we age. As we age there are several potential conditions that could develop:
Destroys sharp, central vision that helps you see fine details: destroys sharp, central vision that helps
◆ You see fine details
Cataracts: vision becomes cloudy
Taking preventative action to fight against conditions like age-related macular degeneration and cataracts is something that you should start as early as possible (between 30-40).
◆ How supplementation can help?
Did you know that your eyes require specialized nutrition as they are continually exposed to the damaging environmental effects of sunlight? Here’s how the carefully chosen ingredients found in Omni Eye-Care contribute to healthy eyes:
– Lutein and zeaxanthin The carotenoids lutein and zeaxanthin are found in the macula of the eye in high concentrations and the lack thereof may play a role in the development of destroys sharp, central vision that helps you see fine details. Lutein and zeaxanthin are antioxidants that help protect your eyes from free radical damage caused by ultra violet radiation and are important for the overall health of your eyes and vision – retina, macula, lenses, and the ability to see details.
– Bilberry The therapeutic properties of bilberry are attributed to the presence of anthocyanosides, which are potent antioxidants. It is suggested that bilberry enhances visual acuity through the inhibition of free radicals.
– Alpha Lipoic acid Cataract development has been linked to reduced levels of glutathione a potent intracellular antioxidant. Alpha lipoic acid is an antioxidant that has been shown to slow the progression of vision becomes cloudy. In lab experiments alpha lipoic acid was able to inhibit aldose reductase enzyme, which is implicated in diabetic vision becomes cloudy.
