- Product Details
Looking for a way to naturally protect your eyes from age-related vision concerns? Good news. There's Eye Shield™ !
Lutein and Zeaxanthin are powerful antioxidants which protect the macula in the eye's retina. Not adequately consumed in most diets, these antioxidants are clinically proven to improve visual performance and support a healthy macula.*
Eye Shield™ protects the eyes in three unique ways:
- Provides clinically effective dose of Lutein - equivalent to almost three cups of raw spinach.
- Provides Zeaxanthin to sustain a healthy supply of Lutein and Zeaxanthin in the aging body.
- The organic Bilberry and Ginkgo are important for capillary health and a healthy blood flow.
Background and Use
Risk of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is significantly higher in people with low concentrations of carotenoids such as Zeaxanthin and Lutein in their blood.
This formula supplies a 5:1 ratio of Lutein:Zeaxanthin which is the ratio that is found naturally in many fruits and vegetables, and is formulated to match the Lutein and Zeaxanthin quantity that is being used in the current AREDS II study, sponsored by the National Eye Institute. This large study is a collaboration of over 80 participating research centers.
Documented cases of Bilberry show its use back in the 12th and again in the 18th century. Bilberry has also been traditionally used as a nutritional supplement in the treatment or prevention of scurvy, due to its vitamin C content. The modern use of bilberry in the treatment of various visual disorders dates to World War II. British Royal Air Force pilots reported that the ingestion of Bilberry jam just prior to missions seemed to improve their vision. Modern research now focuses on the anthocyanins in this fruit.
Ginkgo has been reported to improve ocular (eye) blood flow and to act as an antioxidant to protect the eye. Additional clinical research is needed to better determine the effectiveness of Ginkgo for macular degeneration.
