Comprehensive blend of antioxidant vitamins, minerals, plant flavonoids, & standardized botanical extracts for protection and promotion of healthy ocular function.
- Comprehensive formula containing antioxidant vitamins and minerals, plant flavonoids, and standardized botanical extracts. - Nutrients that are essential support for the fragile structure and function of the eye.
OCU PROTECT with antioxidant protection from bilberry fruit extract, selenium, green tea extract, and lycopene, as well as circulatory support from vitamin C, citrus bioflavonoids, and rutin helps to nutritionally support eye structure and function. Research supports the use of vitamins, antioxidants, and specialty nutrients in the prevention of cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).* VITAMIN A palmitate is a necessary nutrient for vision, as this vitamin binds to rods (rhodopsin) and cones (iodopsin) in the retina. Night blindness is one of the first symptoms of a deficiency in vitamin A. Vitamin A has been shown to be helpful in reducing the prevalence of cataracts.* VITAMIN C and VITAMIN E are antioxidant vitamins, working in tandem. Vitamin C has been shown to be able to regenerate vitamin E in the retina and in rod segments by reducing the oxidized portion of the vitamin E molecule that is induced by UV radiation. Vitamin C also forms the connective tissue of the cornea, and helps to protect this tissue by absorbing UV radiation.* ZINC is important for eye health. High levels of zinc are found in the macula lutea, a highly-pigmented yellow spot near the center of the retina that is responsible for central high-resolution vision. Zinc also helps in the creation of melanin, a pigment that helps to protect the eye. The Age-Related Eye Disease Study (AREDS) followed 3,640 adults aged 55-80 for an average of 6.3 years to determine whether or not supplementation with vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, zinc, and copper would help to prevent AMD. The results of the study showed a 25% reduction in progression of AMD with supplementation.* SELENIUM exerts its physiological effects on the body through at least 25 different selenoenzymes. Lack of selenium has been shown to induce cataracts in rats and mice through decreased activity of glutathione peroxidase.* CHROMIUM can help support healthy blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetics. This may help to prevent diabetic retinopathy. TOCOTRIENOLS Research has also shown tocotrienols to be anti-angiogenic agents, which may help prevent the formation of the pathological vasculature in diabetic retinopathy.* CITRUS BIOFLAVONOID COMPLEX, QUERCETIN, and RUTIN are flavonoids. Quercetin has been shown to protect the retinal epithelium from free radical damage. It is also a potent inhibitor of aldose reductase, the enzyme that causes the elevation of polyols in the lens in diabetic cataracts. Rutin increases ocular blood flow and helps the retina recover from injury. Citrus bioflavonoids work in concert with vitamin C to support healthy blood vessels and circulation in the eye.* N-ACETYL-CYSTEINE boosts the endogenous levels of glutathione. Glutathione has been found to partially prevent the loss of color vision in rats with retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative disorder that can eventually cause blindness. As people age, levels of glutathione drop and in individuals with cataracts the levels were found to be one-tenth that of those in normal lens.* BILBERRY FRUIT EXTRACT (BFE) is a rich natural source of the potent purple-blue pigment antioxidant anthocyanin. Anthocyanins protect capillaries from free radical damage. BFE was shown to protect rats with early-stage cataracts or macular degeneration from disease progression when it was added to their diet in comparison to controls. In combination with Gingko biloba, bilberry anthocyanins were also found to improve visual function in patients with glaucoma.* GINKGO BILOBA LEAF EXTRACT has also been used to improve blood flow, including the microcirculation in small capillaries such as those found in the eye.* R-ALPHA LIPOIC ACID is a fat-soluble antioxidant that has been found to help prevent progression of diabetic retinopathy in rat models.* COENZYME Q10 has been found to help improve visual function in people with early AMD.* GREEN TEA LEAF EXTRACT contains the potent antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) shown to protect retinal and corneal cells in rats from oxidative stress.* LUTEIN AND LYCOPENE are naturally occurring antioxidant carotenoids. In a 2001 study in the UK, higher plasma levels of lycopene and lutein in 372 men and women decreased the risk of cataracts. Lutein is one of the major components of the pigment of the macula lutea. Visual acuity and contrast sensitivity were improved with lutein supplementation as compared to placebo in a prospective study of 90 patients with AMD.
