• Astaxanthin – An Antioxidant for Eye Support
Astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier and the blood-retinal barrier (beta carotene and lycopene do not), which brings antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to your eyes, brain and central nervous system. It is soluble in lipids, so it easily incorporates into cell membranes and protects them from oxidative damage. It is a very powerful natural anti-inflammatory.
• Bilberry Extract For Good Night Vision
Bilberry is high in a substance called flavonoids, chemically known as polyphenols. Bilberry’s flavonoids are anthocyanosides, causing the deep blue-red colour of bilberry that enhances microcirculation throughout the body. Anthocyanosides have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, and strengthen the structural integrity of blood vessels throughout the body and promote healthy circulation, particularly to the small capillaries that deliver oxygen and nutrients to the eyes. Anthocyanosides also help prevent free radical damage to the delicate structures within the eye. Bilberry extract may help your night vision and adaptation to the dark, and promote visual acuity and capillary integrity.
• Vitamin E – Maintenance of Good Eye Health
Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, preventing the damage done by oxidation of nutrients and other chemicals in the body. Antioxidants like Vitamin E are a major part of the body’s immune system. They provide protection against diseases and conditions that are associated with aging by preventing free radicals from damaging cells of the skin, eyes, liver, heart and other bodily organs.
