Age, eye strain, and genetics all play a role in degenerating vision. Considering that sight is the most important of all the senses, safeguarding the health of your eyes is absolutely vital for continued health.
HealthFormula Vision Support is a comprehensive formulation tailored specifically to support eye health.
Vision Support offers a full spectrum of important antioxidants (including the powerful lutein) that are known to assist in the function of the human eye.
A carotenoid found in leafy green vegetables, lutein is a dominant pigment in the macular region of the eye. Lutein is a general antioxidant and is thought to slow the progress of macular degeneration. Many Americans do not get sufficient quantities of lutein in their diets.
- Bilberry extract (standardized)
Bilberry has been used for centuries both as a folk remedy for many ailments and as a food source. Bilberry is an excellent source of anthocyanosides (antioxidant compounds). The particular compounds in bilberry are thought to improve night vision, treat retinal damage, and even to prevent cataracts.
Another potent antioxidant, green tea extract is an exceptional combatant against oxidative damage.
Rutin is an antioxidant. It strengthens capillaries and is known to be beneficial for those who suffer from hemophilia and similar conditions. Rutin inhibits aldose reductase activity. Aldose reductase is an enzyme normally present in the eye. It helps change sugar into sorbitol. But too much sorbitol trapped in eye and nerve cells can damage these cells. Rutin disrupts the chemical process that turns sugar into potentially-harmful sorbitol.
Whether rutin can help reduce the rate of glaucoma is not yet clear but is under investigation.
