Weve taken our comprehensive eyesight support formula and made it even better. By adding 3mg of lutein to each capsule, youre getting superior eye support. Lutein acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. It is not made in the body and must be obtained from large amounts of green, leafy vegetables. Here, we provide this vital eye nutrient in convenient supplement form, together with the other top nutrients for vision health. The anthocyanosides in our potent Bilberry extract nutritionally support collagen to help improve the strength of the capillary walls within the eyes. The other eye-enhancing nutrients ensure you have everything you need for total eye health.
For centuries, Europeans have used bilberry for jams and other foods. Legend has it that pilots in World War II used it to improve their night vision.
Numerous studies have shown bilberry helps to maintain the tiny capillaries that deliver nutrients to eye muscles and nerves. Bilberry also acts as a photomultiplier on the retina by enhancing the perception of normal objects, thus supporting the range and sharpness of vision.
Lutein is a carotenoid found in vegetables and fruits. Lutein acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. Lutein is not made in the body, and so must be obtained through diet and/or supplementation.
A 1997 study (1) showed that lutein supplementation has a protective effect on the eyes. Another study in 2000 (2) demonstrated improvements in visual acuity with lutein.
