Eye health 101. How our eye support supplement keps the modern world at bay
Eyesight Plus provides 30 days of ultimate eye care in every bottle. It is a complex of minerals and vitamins known to support eye health, combined with 20mg of Lutemax 2020 Lutein to protect against blue light and blue light flash exposure.
What is in it.
Lutemax 2020 is a Marigold extract that contains all 3 macular carotenoids. Specifically it helps to improve macular pigment optical density and helps to reduce the risk of developing age-related impairment.
Marigold extracts such as Lutemax 2020 help maintain and support eyesight in certain conditions (associated with sunlight damage) such as age-related impairment.
Additional benefits include support for sleep that is disturbed due to blue light exposure. Blue light penetrates deep in the eye, impacting retinal cells directly. The major contributor to blue light exposure is sunlight, digital devices elevated our exposure. Short-term effects of blue light exposure include eye strain and physical discomfort. Photooxidation—the production of free radicals induced by exposure to radiant energy like light— comparable to sunburn that results when the skin is exposed ultraviolet light. Photooxidation is the most common form of damage that can occur in the retina.
Lutemax 2020 provides 3 macular carotenoids found in the specific area of the macula responsible for sharp vision (3 combine for broad spectrum support) and protection from blue light damage. The body cannot synthesize the macular carotenoids, dietary intake is the only way to ensure optimal levels (conditionally essential).
Macular carotenoids protect retinal tissue and improve contrast sensitivity and improve glare performance.
1 in 7 (1.3 Billion) people suffer from vision impairment (mainly: uncorrected refractive errors, cataracts, and AMD). 80% of visual impairment cases are avoidable. 6-20 mg of Lutein is recommended for eye health. Average daily intake is 1.7 mg from fruit and vegetables.
Zinc is vital for eye health. It can be hard to absorb through the daily American diet. Zinc is highly concentrated in the eye, mostly in the retina and choroid, the vascular tissue layer lying under the retina. Zinc helps Vitamin A create melanin, a pigment that protects the eye. Zinc deficiency makes it difficult to see at night.
8 mg or 11 mg is recommended per day for women and men, respectively. Zinc in combination with antioxidants (Like Lutein) may delay age related vision concerns.
Copper is needed when supplementing zinc, due to a decreased ability to absorb copper. Some studies suggest that taking both Cu and Zn together helps the uptake of both.
Fruit and Vegetable blends:
These provide natural antioxidants. Green leafy vegetables are naturally high in Vitamin A, Lutein, Zeaxanthin which are a foundation for eye and general health.
